Review Of Express Animate

The Express Animate is a program for those who need to create animations from videos or even using designs and ready-made shapes. It brings some really professional tools, but may not be the best app for beginners.

The big problem the  Express Animate is that it is not practical or even intuitive. There is a tutorial at the beginning and it does not indicate exactly what can be done. If you do not know the animation tools similar programs (such as timeline, motion loops, special effects etc) it is very difficult to understand what this app has to offer.

On the site, it indicates that an application for beginners and advanced users, which is not exactly the case. You can even teach yourself to use the Express Animate, but it takes time and patience. In addition, it has several performance issues; during the test, he presented slow and many shortcuts and commands have failed repeatedly.

Worth it?
Express Animate is a free program to make animations, put elements such as shapes and objects in videos and create vignettes or other small materials using text and special effects. It is not very intuitive, however, which ends up making the tools remain limited to those who already know the process in other applications.
