A New Video Engine
Kicking Your Videos Into High Gear
You might have heard some buzz about Animoto shifting over to a “new render engine,” which can be a kind of confusing phrase.

HD Videos

What this means: The engine (the technology) that we used to create your videos before was pretty cool. This new engine is even cooler, and is capable of HD videos and super-fast video creation times. With this new video engine, your videos are available in a much better resolution, both in hi-res upgrades and web-quality. Check out our post on video resolutions to find out the details and how this affects you.

Just a heads-up: With such a huge upgrade, we want to make sure we do it right, so this new engine is being used on Animoto Original styles only. Don’t worry, though – other styles will be available in HD over the next few months.
