    Simple, template-based online app for creating video business presentations and more.

    For freelancers, small, medium and even some large businesses, Wideo.co is a reasonable return on investment. It creates simple or more sophisticated animated videos that will catch the attention of the business audience. It seems particularly fitting for Internet marketers and alike.

    A large support section and plenty of the video tutorials are available. It uses a not-secure, soon obsolete flash player for editing a video.

    There are many other similar online and offline applications. The limitations exist within the less expensive subscription tiers. Study the comparison columns before a purchase. Spend some time with the app, visit their YouTube channel and decide if your business benefited from this particular platform. It is a good solution for what it is within its limitations.

    Pros

    Moderately easy template-based creation of a business presentation video and more.
    Able to control individual frames for detailed animation.
    The auto-save feature automatically saves the work every three minutes.
    Clear and responsive interface.
    Special discount for educators and students.
    Rather expensive plans, but with a discount on annual billing.
    Occasional promotions and specials.
    The 7-day trial does not require a credit card.
    Control the privacy of the videos.
    Imports MP3 files.
    Videos can be reusable over and over.
    Cloud/web-based so it can be used on a variety of platforms.
    Chrome extension available.
    Compatible with Google Drive.
    Variety of tutorial videos and how to articles.
    Available in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Korean languages.
    The social media uploads, including the YouTube.
    High-definition video formats downloads.

    Cons

    Flash must be enabled to run the web application.
    Less expensive subscription tiers present substantial limitation.
    The one-minute limitation does not justify the basic package price.
    The seven-day only trial.
    A video download not-allowed during the seven-day trial.
    A user video upload/import not-possible at all.
    During the editing process, impossible to apply different sounds to various scenes.
    No audio effects per animation nor a video.
    Sounds fade out if shorter than a video.
    No free subscription plan available.
    Only Roman and Korean alphabets supported but, it uploads the text-based images.
    The interactive video option only applies to its native player.

    Response from WIDEO

    Zoran, thank you very much for your review!
    We are glad you've found Wideo easy to use.

    We are working on a new html5 based version to stop having to manually activate Flash plug in.
    We hope to have it ready as soon as possible.
    Have a nice day.

    I have loved using Wideo. I haven't used it recently because I've branched out into real video

    Reviewed on 16/08/2017

    Pros

    The simplicity of use, like building a PowerPoint or KeyNote presentation. Also the clean look. That's my answer!

    Cons

    Last time I used it, I found it hard to create certain special effects. For eg. I tried to create a dropping feather in one video. That's probably a job for Adobe AfterEffects.

    Response from WIDEO

    Allison, thank you so much for your feedback.
    Detailed animations like a dropping feather effect are indeed possible in Wideo, but require an advanced and more complex use of keyframes.

    I¿ve specially created a video project (which I¿m sharing here so you can reuse to inspect https://wideo.co/es/view/21502973382464-dropping-feather-effect) and I¿m also sending via email a GIF to show you the process it took to create the effect.

    From the user front end what is not possible right now is to control the animation easing curves. This is set by default with a deceleration by the end of each keyframe to help non-advanced users create soften fluid animations.

    Of course this particular animation, with more work, can look even better. But I just wanted to picture the example quickly.

    Thanks again, have a nice day.

    I find that it will be useful and worth the investment for a business that needs lots of videos and which doesn't need them to be very original.

    Pros

    I like that it is very easy to use, you don't need previous knowledge about video making, as you have many templates to choose from. You can also create your ouwn video from scratch, but I have never done it this way because my creative skills are non existent.

    Cons

    What I don't like about Wideo is that you cannot download your creations during the trial period, you can only use this time to learn how to use it and evaluate whether it is worth the money for you. Also, the templates that you can choose from are more than enough, but at the end, they are limited, so possibilities are that you will find the same template used in another video in another website, which is not cool. After all, we all want to have exclusive videos. Of course, you can create your own exclusive videos in Wideo, but you will need to be creative and imaginative, which I'm not.

    Response from WIDEO

    Hi there!

    Thanks for the review. The idea of the free trial period it's exactly that, that users can try our video editor. For downloading the videos you have to change to the premium (and paid) subscription.
    Regarding the templates, I can assure you that we have never encountered that issue of a video being duplicated. We have so many different templates and we are always creating new ones that it's almost impossible!

    Thanks again for the review!

    All the best

    Excellent product, very recommend.

    Reviewed on 05/09/2017

    Pros

    - It is very easy to make changes and see them reflected quickly.
    - Easy to use without previous knowledge of animation.

    Cons

    It would be nice to be able to add and edit video. I think this would make it a very complete tool :)

    Response from WIDEO

    Hi Luciano, thank you for the feedback!

    We are very glad to make your job easier.

    We¿ve analyzed including filmed video importing feature in the past. However, we¿ve decided to focus exclusively on animated videos since that¿s were we are experts on.
    Besides we couldn¿t find a good way to perform that kind of files in our tool yet.
    Notice you can still import animated GIF files (animated icons, filmed gifs videos, screencast demo videos, etc) and work above them with graphics, fonts, and animations.

    Thanks again!

    It served its purpose. I created more than 20 videos with it, and the overall experience and feedback about them, was pretty good. But there are still many things to improve. More importantly knowing that there is a lot of competition with other competitors that offer similar services.

    Pros

    It's easy to use. Once you get used to it, you can make good animations. It's obviously not aimed at professional video animators. But for someone that wants to make a couple of videos fast and easy, this is a great tool.

    Cons

    With the last update to HTML5, there were many things that are yet to be added. One of the features i miss the most is the shortcut for Undo. Little things like this, become annoying when you have to spend 4 hours making a video. When suggesting ideas, customer support tells you that they will work on it, but i'm not sure you ever hear of it again.

    Response from WIDEO

    Dear Francisco, thank you so much for taking the time to review Wideo.
    We know there are some things that are not ready yet, but we are moving forward very fast.
    Regarding shortcuts, we've just released a new version with undo and other 16 shortcuts. (ctrl + Z for PC; Command + Z for Mac)

    Would you like to leave us your email so we can put in touch to discuss these and other things to improve? We want to offer you a free month subscription as we really appreciate the time you take to help us create a better Wideo.

    Looking forward to your answer.
    Have a nice day! Thank you again!
