A review between two animation design online software that helps you decide which is the better alternative for your use-case.
OFFEO’s main use case is short videos. It has a cap of 3 minutes in its video creations and is thus not suitable for video editing or longer format videos. It is possible to also create graphic posters and GIFs in OFFEO.
Biteable’s focus is on storytelling. Every scene is limited to what’s already inside the scene. This compels the user to use multiple scenes and turn it a longer format video that’s focused on storytelling.
OFFEO has a moderate learning curve. With a freedom to customize much more than other design platforms, it can be intimidating to see the added options. However, the platform is brilliantly created and intuitive to pick up. The learning curve is worth it to overcome for greater control over designs.
Biteable has a gentle learning curve. The creation process is pretty straightforward. Choose a template for each scene and just change the text. Not much edits can be performed.
OFFEO has the advantage here with thousands of templates to choose from. Select from a wide variety of styles and purposes to kickstart your project.
Biteable has the around 500 templates in 30 different categories. It has a good variety for you to get started.
OFFEO creates its own design assets. Find stickers, animated graphics, CTA and more. Having this arsenal definitely opens up more options to help you achieve your perfect design.
Biteable does not have any graphics nor animated stickers that can be used on the design. You will need to have some on your own to upload into the tool.
OFFEO has a one-click animation tool. It animates your whole design in one single click. Shuffle between animation types to achieve a different look.
Biteable actually has quite basic design features compared to the industry. It’s unique point is the design templates.
OFFEO is priced at $19/month for unlimited videos, images and GIF downloads. There’s also no cap on projects made so you can truly create freely.
Biteable is priced at $29/month for unlimited downloads at 1080p. Downloads only come in the form of mp4 videos.
With extra customizations come with a steeper learning curve. OFFEO has more to offer than Biteable. It, however, takes a tad more time to pick up. If you are looking to create something in the long term, having more tools and control definitely works towards your favor.
On the other hand, Biteable is suitable for users that are looking to create a long format explainer. Having scenes laid out for you if you’re looking at >3mins duration is a god-send although not much customisation can be done. If that’s what you’re looking for, you can give Biteable a try.
