|Description||Cloud-Based Animated Video Production|
GoAnimate is the leading cloud-based animated video creation platform. It enables all users to quickly and easily produce a wide range of videos – from scratch – using drag and drop tools.
GoAnimate divides its tools into two parts. Quick Video Makers are template-based solutions which allow users to complete a finished video in a matter of minutes. Full Video Makers provide the user with full creative control over the characters, backgrounds, props, music, sound effects and scene transitions.
GoAnimate provides asset libraries containing thousands of characters, backgrounds, props, etc. – everything needed to complete a video. However, if users wish, they can also import their own external elements, such as sound files, images, photos or video clips.
Finished videos can be downloaded as mp4 files in HD or Full HD resolution, or directly published to a number of partners, such as YouTube.
Founded by CEO Alvin Hung in 2007, GoAnimate is the confluence of a husband’s desire to create a video apology for his wife meeting the business opportunity that resides in the lack of a simple-to-use animated video production tool. As a serial entrepreneur, Alvin recognized this gap as a large and growing problem that required swift action. Since its inception, GoAnimate’s community has expanded its service to more than five million registered users worldwide, with approximately 20 employees between the Bay Area and Hong Kong.

Simple, Powerful Tools for Making Videos
With GoAnimate, you can publish your first professional-looking video in minutes. Our Quick Video Makers are structured solutions requiring no learning curve. Just click & go! When you want more creative control, use our Full Video Makers. There, you can control the camera, move the characters, add music and effects - all using simple drag & drop tools.
Create Your Own Custom Characters
All our video makers are loaded with a library of characters. But if you want a specific look - you can make it yourself in our Character Creator. Choose facial features, clothing and accessories off simple point & click menus. With practice, you can create just about anyone, from the President of the United States to the president of your company.
Dialogue Your Way
Our platform allows for four different methods of entering dialogue. First, you can record voices directly into the video makers. You don’t need special equipment. An ordinary chat or gaming mic will be fine. Second, you can use our “text-to-speech” voices. Just type the lines and choose the voice from a menu. We have men’s and women’s voices in over 20 different languages to choose from. Third, you can import external audio files. This is great for animating recorded speeches or interviews. Finally, you can type text and just have it appear in comic-book style speech bubbles.
BYOB (Bring Your Own Background)
We have hundreds of backgrounds and sets for you to choose from. But maybe you don’t like ours. Or maybe the scene has to take place at the client’s headquarters. That’s no problem. You can import image files and use them as the background. The feature is not limited to backgrounds. You can import audio, image, video or flash files into our Full Video Makers to be incorporated into your video.
Hosting and Sharing
When you create a video on GoAnimate, we automatically host it as part of your account. You can share links, paste embed codes, export the video to mp4 and see basic viewing statistics. For those who want wider distribution, we offer one-click publishing to YouTube and similar arrangements with many professional video hosting services. Please see our Marketplace page for more details.
