While this post isn't related to Humble Bundle, it is an important review of using software to animate our charities logo. Renderforest is a free online slideshow and animated video maker. It allows anyone to upload an image of your organisations logo and animate it.
I have broken down the review into 5 areas to make it easier to understand.
The quality of the finished product is absolutely amazing. In order for a 2D image to be turned into an animated logo with sound is truly astounding.
Easy of Use: 5/5
This software is incredibly easy to use that a child could do it. They have obviously put a lot of thought into the user experience. This makes the users life much easier without having to worry about knowing how to user complex video animation software to create an animated logo.
Features and Functionality: 4/5
The range of templates on offer is very good. There is pretty much a template for every type of user or organisation. The reason this area only gets 4 out of 5 is that the only down side seems to be they don't yet offer the ability to have your logo created in 4K resolution. Currently 1080p is the highest resolution they offer, however I suspect this will be something they will be adding in the future as they have put in a lot of effort into the software to make it accessible to anyone.
Customer Support: 5/5
Customer support is excellent. I contacted the support email address as I had several questions about the software that needed answering. They responded almost straight away. This is a huge advantage in their favour especially in this world when trying to contact companies, who either don't put email addresses online, answer contact forms, or provide phone numbers to talk to someone.
Value for Money: 5/5
The value for money is fantastic, most people that need a logo animated probably don't know how to use video editing software which takes time to learn and can cost hundreds of dollars. To download their highest quality per export costs only $29.99, for such simplicity for the user, in return for a high quality product this is definitely value for money. The age old saying that "time is money", this saves you a lot of time animating your organisations logo, or paying hundreds of dollars to either buy software to do it yourself, or pay a professional.
Overall Score: 4.8/5
For the overall score, I give Renderforest 4.8/5. It is such a great product, if only they offered 4K resolutions this would have received 5/5.
