Whats New in Animatron: Lite Mode, Whiteboard Animation, and More

At Animatron, we want to empower our users to create stunning animations – easily. While we are proud of the fact that our animation maker can be used by both newbies and professionals alike, we did want to make is simpler to work with for those less familiar with animation tools. That’s why we have just released the Lite Mode.

What is the Lite Mode?

It is a simplified version of our animated video maker. It has all the great features of Animatron but is easier to navigate and work with. The timeline got “lighter”: you can see right away when each object appears on canvas. It’s also easy to control the length of the scene.


New appearance effects

For each object that you put on the canvas, you can now apply an in and out appearance effect. You can make the characters fly in, zoom in, move them in with a hand or even draw them on canvas. It is also possible to specify how long you want the effect to “last”, i.e. how much time it will take a character to appear on the canvas.


Whiteboard animation

We are excited to introduce the whiteboard animation style to Animatron! This style is hugely popular among marketers, educators and animators alike. It captures viewer’s attention because people naturally anticipate what’s going to be drawn next. Use it for your explainer videos and presentations.


Did you know that you can actually record your own voice in Animatron? Use it to accompany your animated videos, animated presentations, and infographics. Your audience will love to hear from you!


Dozens of new sets

We just added dozens of new characters, props, and backgrounds to our ever-expanding Marketplace. Airport, office, playground, hospital, school or beach – your animated explainer videos or presentations can educate your audience about any topic with our free pre-animated sets.
