How can an animated explainer video benefit your business?

Explain and clarify

As the name suggests, explainer videos do a great job of explaining what your company or project is all about. You can use them to make even the hardest concepts more accessible for your audience in a short time by presenting them in a fun and visually appealing way.

Engage your audience

Engage your audience by giving them a memorable video watching experience. You can use animated videos to show your brand personality in a fun and catchy way, making the viewers stick around and see what you have to say. This makes them an effective marketing tool for boosting brand engagement.

Build trust

Explainer videos effectively demonstrate the ins and outs of your company or product to a customer. This sends a message that you care about them and want to make the interaction with your brand comfortable, becoming a basis for trust towards your brand.

Increase conversions

Engaging and easy-to-grab animated explainer videos make for a great selling tool without making you sound too salesy. They can serve as a walkthrough to your product or service, showing all the benefits the viewer will get.

Professional Video Logo Reveals make for really Engaging Videography

Renderforest has really helped me to overcome some major hurdles with regard to the professional presentation of our business to stakeholders. The features that it has allowed me to use has made it possible for me to present designs to stakeholders that are more than just impressive, they actually look like they were designed by a qualified designer (which they were) but I made it my own through Renderforest. I absolutely loved how easy it was to get right what I wanted out of Renderforest. The sheer amount of template available to do anything from a logo reveal to an explainer video is mind-boggling. One of my favorite features of the software is the ability to keep tweaking the end result online before having to commit to using a credit to download the rendered final result. This goes a long way to making sure you are happy with your purchase!

Can I upload my own media to the animations?

Yes, you can upload your media to the explainer videos. For this, you need to navigate to “Image Holders” or “Video Holders” scene categories and select the scenes that fit your project. Then, upload your visuals or choose from your media library, then edit and adjust them using the tools of our explainer video maker.

What is the recommended size for my media?

The recommended image size will depend on the template and scene you are using to make the explainer video. However, for the images, we recommend using JPG files with a 1920x1080 size for a more appealing visual experience. For logo animations, go with 1000x1000 transparent PNG files. In case you need to alter the images, you can crop them and add filters in the editor of our explainer video maker. What comes to videos, the recommended resolution is again 1920x1080. Our platform currently supports only MP4 files, so if your footage is in another format, you may need to convert it. The maximum allowed file size is 30 MB for free users, and 50 MB for the subscribers.

How long can explainer videos created with Renderforest be?

The allowed duration of explainer videos you can create with Renderforest will vary from 3 to 60 minutes, depending on your subscription plan. For more detailed information about the maximum length of videos available for each plan, check out our pricing page.

In what resolution can I export my animated explainer video?

Here again, the resolution of your project will depend on your subscription plan. Currently, Renderforest offers video exports in three qualities: 360p, HD720, and HD1080. For detailed information on the allowed export quality for each plan, visit our pricing page. In case you need to create only one video, we also offer a pay-per-product option. Once your explainer video is final, you can select the desired resolution and pay only for the export of your video.

Will I have any copyright issues?

If you are subscribed to any of our packages or purchased the video, you will be exempt from any copyright claims. For free users, if you need the video for personal use, you won't have any copyright issues. However, if you plan to use them for commercial purposes, we recommend you abstain from using the tracks available on Renderforest. To avoid any copyright claims, make sure to upload your own music that doesn't come with a 'rights reserved' tag.
