Created in 2011, Powtoon is a free online tool for creating animated videos. The website is marketed as a tool for business presentations, school projects, and personal animated videos. The drag-and-drop tools on the website require no previous animation experience.
While Powtoon is free to use, there are many features on the website that can only be accessed by upgrading to Powtoon Pro, the paid version of the tool. Purchasing this gives the users more objects to animate, and removes the watermark from the animated video.
