What was the best part about using PowToon?
Prior to Powtoons, my team had been using Adobe Connect to create explainer videos. While Adobe Connect is great for other things, it's not that great for actual video graphics to the same extent as PowToons. As a starter product with our explainer videos, PowToons has really helped simplify the creation in a easy to use tool.
What would you change about your experience with PowToon?
Of course, there are some kinks that need to be figured out with any product and PowToons is no exception. One thing that has REALLY annoyed me with PowToons is they are constantly changing what icons/images are available for Pro versus Biz. For example, we purchased. I created a video for a client, used the items available to me as a Pro user, etc. A few days later, once I received feedback from the client, some of those items I had selected were no Biz!? WTF, PowToons?! Not cool! This has happened to me multiple times. STOP CHANGING WHAT PRO USERS HAVE ACCESS TOO!
Also, if I work in PowToons for long hours (which tends to happen), then I start getting system errors, it starts to slow down, images I have included don't show up when I play back, etc. I've learned to save frequently and often, but it just gets annoying when I need to close out of PowToons completely in order for it to work properly.
As a start product for video creation, PowToon is great. It's easy to use, has some awesome features available, and anyone can pick up on it.
But, they still need to decide what is available to Pros, what's available to BIZ and stick to it.
