About Vyond

Vyond is a cloud-based animation solution designed to help organizations create professional animated videos for training, marketing, and HR purposes. Key features include team collaboration, asset management, data visualization, remote access, data import, and a whiteboard tool.

The application enables businesses to create brand-specific, customizable videos using a library of templates, sounds, or props, as well as publish them on social media channels and LMS platforms. Marketers can use Vyond to generate promotional video ads or messages, and build campaigns such as product explainers and animated GIFs for targeted audiences. It lets designers prepare dynamic content using multiple styles/characters, and enables users to add animation through realistic movements, actions, and automated lip-synchronization.

Vyond provides administrators with tools to grant role-based permissions among users, automate logout for inactive sessions, conduct IP whitelisting, and manage video cache expiration dates. Using its drag-and-drop interface, HR managers can onboard new hires and engage employees by creating short films, and communicating brand culture.

Overall I think Vyond has brought more benefits to our company than what we could have imagined. It has decreased the training durations since we can now create videos for knowledge instead of instructor lead training sessions.

Pros

In our instructional design we have implemented media creation and this is a great tool for just that. We have been able to reduce training time by creating videos that transmit knowledge in less time. Our survey results show that people prefer learning this way and most important they really enjoy it.

Cons

The options to create personalized characters is awesome however I still believe that its missing some option to create more personalized characters. For example long hair for girls

Response from GoAnimate

Thank you for your review and feedback. I've sent the feedback about hair length on to our product team. We update our product every three weeks and love to add what you need. If you ever have more additions to request, please connect with us directly at [email protected]

I have enjoyed making videos with Vyond, am very happy with the options available, and I have been able to present the videos I've wanted to make, not just 'settle' for some subpar options. Kudos to the software for providing as much customization as it does.

Pros

It is very simple to set a scene, and create animation that looks far more difficult to pull off than it is. It creates very dynamic scene possibilities that help get our message across in an attractive manner.

Cons

Sometimes getting a quick playback of scenes to check syncing without rendering out the entire video made the process longer than I would have liked, but over all it was still a good experience.

Response from GoAnimate

I wholly regret the decision of purchasing this software. The extreme lack of common, everyday items for props and character animations you find yourself needing, the bugs and poor customer service make it a thoroughly disappointing experience. After spending hours trying to make a two-minute video with realistic actions and props, you find yourself forced to be creative just to cope with the lack of what you assumed would be standard. If I could do it all over again, I would have tried different software.

Pros

This software has a lot of templates that can help you create videos quickly without starting from scratch. It seems to be well-suited for beginners to create very simple videos.

Cons

Let's start by talking about the bugs. Several times a day I encounter "video cannot be played" errors when trying to preview the changes I make while editing. Also several times I've been kicked out and told I need to log in again while in the middle of editing a video I had been working on for over an hour. When this happens, I lose all the progress I've made since my last save, which tends to be significant. I contacted customer support who told me "this is fairly common" and I needed to clear my cache, clear my cookies, AND restart my PC. I asked if they could extend my subscription or offer any form of compensation to make up for the lost time. They said they "can't" do anything of the sort.

So aside from the software bugs and poor customer service, let's dive into the problems with the features. At first glance, it almost seems like they have too many props, character action animations, and so forth. But once you begin to create videos with any level of detail or natural actions, you'll notice just how frustratingly limited it really is.

Say you want to create a scene where a character walks through a door. You'll find just two door props that have an open and close animation, but no static props of a matching door staying open. Nor will you find a wall prop to go with that door. Want your character to order a drink in a bar? There's no animation for walking while holding a drink. I've run into dozens of similar limitations of things that should be commonplace.

Response from GoAnimate

I'm sorry you've been frustrated with our product. Are you a subscriber, or was this during your free-trial period?

I've shared your feedback about the doors and drink holding. Please feel free to send us more feedback: [email protected]

Vyond's product features do include auto-save and version history. Like other SaaS products, our product requires you are on a stable internet connection.

I use it anytime I need a static image with cool backgrounds and characters, for creating videos, animated gifs, and comics.

Pros

This tool made it so easy to create animated videos with ready to use characters and backgrounds. I even created comics using vyond and it wasn't difficult at all.

Cons

This tool provides a lot of options, but you need to spend some time poking around and learning it all. The options are not right in front of you always.

We are using Vyond for human services and non-profit services. We have already used Vyond to create tutorials for new software that staff have to use. We plan to use this to train on policies for greater impact and memory retention. We also plan to create videos to use to supplement virtual classes for our clients.

Pros

I love that this software allows me (non-graphic-design-inclined) to create engaging and creative videos to train staff in a way that has more impact and memory retention than documents, emails or PowerPoint trainings. Without attending a tutorial, I was able to create a video with animations, voice-over audio and music. The software is very intuitive. For any unclear features, they use their own tool to create short informational videos to answer help topics.

Cons

I wish there was a way to create an animation path in a curve or other non-straight line. The template library is vast, however, there were still some needs that I had which I had to manually create. Hopefully they continue to grow this library as users increase.

Response from GoAnimate

Hi Michelle, Thank you for your review.

Good news curved motion paths will be here soon.

We'd also like to hear what props, clothing & actions you need us to add. We update the product every three weeks and love to add exactly what you need.
