We're always testing out new web apps. Today we tested the lite (free) version of Animoto. Here's our take on it. Lite Account Limits: There is a limited library of pre-designed templates. Most importantly, clip duration is limited to 30 seconds...which means you need to keep it brief. Story Telling Features: You can upload your photos and videos and add text "slides" to help tell your story. Be Social: Our favorite feature is the ability to auto publish on YouTube. After that, export and download the MP4 file and upload to Facebook and Google+. Our Test: Here's what we came up with. Not bad for less than an hour worth of effort. Domo arigato Mr. Animoto... Note: Video has soundtrack, turn down speakers. The Verdict: If you are looking for a free and simple way to create a video, give Animoto Lite a spin.
