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.
Vyond’s focus is on long format storytelling. The designs in Vyond are rather one-dimensional and leaning towards the illustrative style. If you are looking to create a light hearted video either for training or for explainers, Vyond could be a possible option for you to explore.
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.
Vyond has a steep learning curve. The design controls differ from traditional interfaces and would need some time to get used to. The browsing of templates are in a single scrollable row, it feels really difficult to navigate around this.
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.
Vyond has the around 600 templates in 29 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.
Vyond’s actually has one of the most animated graphics compared to other SaaS in the industry. They have split these graphics into their 3 main video categories of Cotemporary, Whiteboard and business contemporary.
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.
Vyond’s unique feature is probably it’s extensive asset library. Their templates are literally scenes that was built with their assets. You can add in an office scene and the tables, chairs, dividers, computers are all added in one by one to build the scene.
OFFEO is priced at $19/month for unlimited videos, images and GIF downloads. There’s also no limit on projects made so you can truly create freely.
Vyond is priced at $89/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 Vyond. 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, Vyond is suitable for users that are looking to create a long format explainer videos that lean towards an illustrative style. Use their text-to-speech tool to complete that explainer video if you don’t have the budget to get a VO artist. It however, costs much more than the other SaaS products in the industry.
