The Best Animation Software For Beginners

If you are a graphic designer, video editor, animator then chances are you are on the lookout for the best animation software for beginners that can be used at professional level which can bring your creative juices to life. You may even want to take up a new hobby or find an alternative means to earn an income. If you fall into any of these brackets then you will need a good software that can match your expectations. I am going to detail the best animation software that I use and have used over the years to hopefully help you to make a good decision when you purchase your next video creation software.

The first on my list is:


Explaindio Canvas

Explaindio is a leading animation software that allows you to create whiteboard/doodle videos, 2D animation videos, 3D animation videos. They have an extensive template based range as well as a great canvas to put your ideas on. I have personally found this to be a great tool to add to my arsenal and constantly use this when creating videos.

Video Maker FX:

Video Maker FX is another animation software that I recommend (PC Based). This software allows you to create 2D explainer videos, It has a very easy learning curve and just like explaindio has an extensive template range suited for any niche you can imagine. The quality of the animations are superb. It has less editing functions unlike Explaindio but is worth the investment to add to your video tools.

If you are ready for something with a bit more motion graphics range then After Effects is a must have software. There is a lot to learn when you take this on but if you are willing to put in the time and effort then this will be a worthwhile investment. The great aspect is there are lots of tutorials available to help you along the way.
