Use Case

OFFEO


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

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.

Ease of Use

OFFEO

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

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.

Templates

OFFEO

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

Biteable has the around 500 templates in 30 different categories. It has a good variety for you to get started.

Biteable

Biteable actually has quite basic design features compared to the industry. It’s unique point is the design templates.

Pricing

OFFEO

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

Biteable is priced at $29/month for unlimited downloads at 1080p. Downloads only come in the form of mp4 videos.

In Conclusion

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.
