Welcome to our VidToon 2.0 review. Vidtoon 2.0 is the latest version of VidToon, a popular animation software. But is it better than the earlier version? Are there any added features? What about the pricing? Let’s find out.
It’s a known fact that animated videos can help grow your business significantly. Videos right now are one of the highest consumed forms of content online.
When we combine animated videos with the audio and visual element together, it starts tapping into our imagination. And when that happens, the marketing message you want to send to your viewers will be more effective.
But there is another side to the story. While animated videos are a great way to attract viewers, grab their attention and turn them into customers, it is very hard to create these kinds of animated videos. If you are someone like me, who doesn’t know coding or graphic designing, it is going to be even more difficult.
And that’s where the software like VidToon 2.0 comes into the picture. With VidToon 2.0 anyone can easily create animated videos on their computer, without having any special skills or hiring a costly graphic designer.

How to Create Animation Videos Using VidToon 2.0?
Now let’s quickly look at how to easily create animated videos using VidToon 2.0 software. (There is a demo video given below)
Step 1. Adding Backgrounds
VidToon 2.0 comes with many readymade HD backgrounds which can be used right away. You can also upload your own images and designs to use in your backgrounds. To use a background simply drag and drop it into the video builder box.
You can then resize the background to fit the screen. If you click on the ‘settings’ icon you can set when you want the background to start showing and how long you want it to last. This can also be done in the timeline, which is the easier way.
There are also options to flip the background, colour the background, and also to add appearing and disappearing effects. There is also an option to add a moving effect by using the ‘move a to b’ feature. If you want, you can also add more backgrounds to the timeline.
Step 2. Adding Characters
You get access to a variety of really nice HD animated characters from inside your VidToon 2.0 dashboard. The ‘search’ feature on the top helps you to find the desired character easily. To use a character, you need to simply drag and drop it into the character track of the timeline.
Like the backgrounds, you can also resize your characters. To add an animation to the character, click on the settings icon and choose the desired action. If you want your character to continually do the animation action, simply click on the loom check.
You can add appearing and disappearing effect and moving effect to the character. You can also add multiple characters to the scene and make them do anything you want, creating an awesome story effect.
Step 3. Adding Zoom Effect
This is a new feature that can be found in VidToon 2.0. With this feature, you can add a ZOOM effect to your video. To do that click on the ‘green bar’ below the timeline.
You can also add as many zoom options as you want, by clicking on a small plus button on the left side of the track. To add as many zoom options as you want all you need to do is adjust it in the track and then customize it to where you want the zoom effect to be.
When you preview the scene you’ll be able to see that the effect starts in full screen and then zooms into the character. A zoom out effect can be created by adding another zoom, placing it next to the previous one and adjusting it in the scene.
Step 4. Adding Stock Images, Icons and Gifs.
With this new feature, you can add images, icons and Gifs to your projects from PixaBay. To search for an asset, just type in the keyword and enter search. You will be shown a list of images from where choose the one you want and click on the download icon to add it to your gallery.
You can either drag it to the timeline or add it straight to the scene. There are options to flip, move and resize and duplicate these assets.
Step 5. Adding Voice and Text
From inside VidToon 2.0, you can add automated voice, Google TTS voice or even record your own voice and add it to the animations. To use this feature, click on the text to speech icon and drop it onto the audio track of the timeline.
Then click on the settings icon. From here, if you want to use the google text to speech service, add your google api key. You can also use the default VidToon 2.0 voices from here.
All you need to do is just add the text in the box and generate voice overs. The voice will be automatically added to the scene. There is also an option to record your own voiceovers.
The same way, you can add text to your video by a simple drag and drop.
Step 6. Adding Music
You can add music to your video either from the inbuilt music library or by uploading your own music tracks.
Scene Management Feature
