A review between two graphic 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.
Crello’s focus is on social graphics. It is suitable for beginners that don’t require much customisation to their designs.
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 greater control over designs.
Crello has a gentle learning curve. The options to customize assets are slightly limited but good to use if you have all the available assets by your side to slap it onto the canvas. You can also apply simple animation to your designs although advanced customizations are limited.
Both OFFEO and Crello have thousands of templates to choose from.
Crello has the advantage here boasting around 30,000 templates.
Be spoilt for choices and search for great templates with both platforms.
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.
Crello has a set of their own animated graphics. It would have been better if edits like adjustments and additional effects (blur, shadows, etc.) can be performed to these graphics like OFFEO can.
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.
Crello has a function that allows you to add an image or video mask to your text. It’s a really cool way to design things this way although that means the text can’t be animated.
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.
Crello is priced at $8/month.
With extra customizations come with a steeper learning curve. OFFEO has more to offer than Crello. 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.
