GoAnimate is an online animation studio application that allows anyone to make 2D cartoon style animations quickly and easily using pre-made characters, props and backgrounds.
Characters have a range of pre-animated, generic actions and emotions, such as walking, running, looking happy, angry and more that can be adapted to almost any situation.
Voices can be added using either computer generated, human-like voices that will speak any text you enter or, preferably, you can record real actors voices and the characters will automatically lip sync to what your actors are saying.
GoAnimate also features a library of royalty free music and sound effects that you can include to further enhance your animation.
Whilst you can use almost any non-licensed character for your commercial project - and even design your own characters in GoAnimate's Character Creators - GoAnimate has created special themes of Characters, props and backgrounds designed exclusively for business presentation style animations. A sample of which can be seen in the image on the right.
Most importantly GoAnimate's studio is not limited to pre-defined content. If you can't find it on site then simply import your own custom made props, backgrounds and characters. Your video can even display your businesses logo as a watermark to further create awareness of your brand.
Unlike traditional, fully custom made animations, GoAnimate enables 1-2 minute animations to be completed far quicker for less cost simply because much of the animation work is already done.

What if I don't want to use GoAnimate?
GoAnimate is one of the most versatile drag'n'drop animation systems out there but if, for whatever reason, it's not a good fit for your animation project check out other platforms that I use which may be better suited to your needs.
