2021 Year in Review: Product Updates and New Features

2021 Year in Review: Product Updates and New Features

2021 was indeed a challenging year. The pandemic, unexpected global changes, new experiences, and many other events followed each other during the year. 

However, we at Renderforest never stopped doing what we love the most – improving our tools and the platform, in general, to make them more user-friendly and intuitive for you. 

In the new 2022 year, let’s sum up our previous year with all the key updates and improvements on Renderforest!

One of the major improvements on our website was the redesign of the “My Account” page. Now, you can fully edit your account settings from here: manage your sub-accounts, change your password, check your subscriptions, preview your invoices, update your preferences, and more.

Moreover, you have probably noticed our new section here for colors and fonts. In the “My colors & fonts” section, you can add your brand colors and create color palettes, also you can add up to 10 fonts depending on your subscription plan. Later on, you can use these colors and fonts in your projects.

Now, let’s move on to our product updates.


Video Maker

Based on our user feedback and reviews, we constantly update our products. As a result, we have many features that our users love.

So, in 2021, we’ve added an advanced text scale to our video editor with more options to adjust the text size in the scenes. You can reduce or increase the text size up to 2 times.

Another update that’s worth mentioning is the “Recently Used” files option in our video editor that lets you find and select a file that you’ve already used in that project.

One of the long-awaited updates was the fit/fill functionality in our video editor. When you add your video or choose a stock video, you have the option to trim it. And now, you can also crop the video based on the video holder dimensions.

Great news for our Android users. We’ve finally launched our Video Maker mobile app for Android! 

After launching the iOS app, we’ve received hundreds of requests to create one for Android too. So, here it is – a fully functional video maker app

Graphic Maker

Our latest tool – Graphic Maker – was launched at the end of 2020 and has become one of the most favorite ones among our users. But we’ve figured out that even though it’s a very easy-to-use tool, it’s a bit limited for our users.

This is why we’ve decided to do some enhancements and make it more flexible. So here come the 2 biggest updates of our graphic maker tool: fully customizable layers and elements integration.

Now, you can edit and customize the layers the way you want and also add or remove the elements and shapes.

Another update that our users will definitely love is that we’ve removed the limit of color customization, so now you can freely change the colors of any element and layer.

During the previous year, we’ve added over 100 graphic template packs for social media, presentation templates, and printables. To make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for, we’ve updated our search functionality. 

Search for a topic or keyword you’re interested in and find all the relevant packs in different size presets.
