Renderforest https://www.renderforest.com/ is a cloud based video maker for creating intro videos for YouTube, explainer animations, product or service promotional videos, kinetic typography, and a lot more.
It is an easy to use online tool. There are some instructional videos on how to edit and create your video which is a clear and simple process. There are five different subscription plans available starting with a free offering up to the Enterprise plan of $299 per month or $999 per annum. There is also a reasonably priced pay per export plan which most video makers do not have so with Renderforest, you are not forced to sign up for a subscription plan you do not need as was my case when I discovered the service.
With the free plan, users can download their videos although it will be a low quality one with the company’s watermark. Creating a video is a breeze. There are pre-built templates available and most times, all that needs to be edited is the text, logo, social media links as well as the music which can be selected from the media library. An option to add your own voice over is also available. If you need to start on a plain template the process is longer but you get to choose objects and images you want in your video instead of settling for the pre-built templates.
A feature I would like the Renderforest team to consider providing is the ability to play each video frame while editing to preview it instead of having to preview the whole video.
In conclusion, Renderforest is a good contender in the online video market sector and positions itself competitively by offering fair pricing and a varied pricing structure that serves both the frequent video creator or the occasional or one-off customer.
