We created our original marketing video builder, now called Animoto 2, back in 2016. The product was designed to make it easy to create marketing videos that stand out on social media. But a lot has changed in the past four years.
Social video has become more than a nice to have—it’s now an integral part of small business marketing, and a powerful form of online communication. We took a hard look at how we could best help our customers tell their stories with video in 2020 and beyond.
We realized that in order to deliver an even easier and faster video creator, we needed to make some dramatic changes. We spent months researching, developing, and conducting countless interviews. We took what we learned and reimagined and redesigned the entire Animoto experience from the ground up.
Animoto 3 is a faster, easier way to make videos that get you noticed. It’s a brand new version of our marketing video builder, built based on your feedback.
Animoto 3 is built to be fast, easy, and flexible for you, with loads of customization options and new features. It’s also more powerful under the hood. That means our developers and designers can produce even more exciting features going forward. We’re really just getting started.
Animoto 3 Beta is your chance to be among the first to try out the new experience, and we think you’re going to love it!
