Still, it is one of the easiest ways to create videos to promote your business without any prior knowledge in video editing or animations. There are a lot of pre-made templates available and features camera zoom, a collection of characters that can lip-sync. 

Going for the cheapest monthly or annual option is not going to make the videos you create, your own. The Vyond Essential that costs US $39/month or US $299/year will have their logo on every video. You’ll need to purchase the Vyond Premium for US $89/month or US $649/year to actually be yours.

The preset themes aren’t the best. It is a web-based app so you can create videos on your browser, however, the site is pretty heavy with graphics, so a slow computer may not be able to handle it.
