While we tried to use this app, we could easily access and use the drag-and-drop functionality to pick the best-animated characters and themes for the project. It is also simple to import different file types and edit those into the explainer videos using Anireel. Here, we discuss further the best features we found. 

Interface/Home Screen

The interface in Anireel is so simple to understand, access, and use on a regular basis. After completing the final registration process, you can open the software to its home screen, which contains all major features on display.

Interface Home Screen

You can adjust the preferred aspect ratio for your project, choosing between desktop-based Widescreen (16:9), Instagram-centric size (1:1), and Portrait mode (9:16). Other features/sections like the Creator Academy, Voiceover/TTS, and Recent Projects are also accessible through the home screen.

This automated feature promises one-click creation of the best video results based on some pre-set sample formats. You can choose the type of video you require, and the AI software will evaluate and prepare a suitable file for posting.

TTS/Voiceover

While trying out this feature, we added the necessary text that would play in the background of the explainer videos and tutorials we created. The process and quality were relatively good.

TTS Voiceover

For all users, around 2000 characters are allowed for the text to be added. You can choose between different characters, including male and female choices, and between different languages (supports upto 41 languages). Easily adjust the pitch and speed of the voiceover as well before adding it to your video.
