Free, Easy Animation and Movie Maker – Software and Online Programs

Updated on February 19, 2013

I consider these as the best free animation and movie maker software and online programs in today’s online world. They are not complicated to use, just drag and drop animation features. Advanced movie making has never been this easy.

While I enjoy watching and viewing funny animation videos in youtube, I have learned and discovered two free and easy software people always use to upload their parody and educational animated HD and 3D videos in the top video sharing website. These two are free to use and to download and can be used to Windows and Mac OS. You can also use them to make your own anime or movie online and upload them in HD anytime you wish. The animation programs can also be a cool way to give you money once your video has partnered under the youtube Partner Program as seen on the website itself and across Facebook, Myspace, BuzzFeed, and other social websites.


“If you can type, you can make movies…” That’s the teaser of this brilliant animation maker provider. Just simple and easy, you just type your script and choose your characters from their software and you can make a clip – on the web and on your desktop.

Powerpoint is no longer in vogue and using animated clip arts in the field of education is kinda boring. Lots of xtranormal videos about simple topics for kids are going viral all around the web because kids enjoy it. What-is, How-to and all interesting educational topics can be well explained.

Xtranormal has developed two products to more advanced movie making system. Right now, anyone can create an animation using their STATE and MOVIE MAKER products. Like I said, it’s so easy. Their cool animation studio software is packed with powerful features like the drag and drop animation widgets.

This one is my favorite animated video created using xtranormal. It’s so funny. Some find it a little boring but the dialogue is funny. This video became viral. I found this browsing over CollegeHumor. The guy who created this used the free version of xtranormal. Now it’s a big hit in youtube and earns money through Google Ads.

This one on the right, is a sample educational animated video created using, again, xtranormal.There are numerous educational topics available created using animated software. How cool this is!


GoAnimate is another fast growing animation maker technology online. You don’t even need to download this software. It has a wide range of brilliant tools and features to make animation-making more creative and expressive. I must admit, the characters, cartoons and backgrounds, speech options here are more pleasing than those from the simple xtranormal. Anyway, if you loved xtranormal, you surely gotta love GoAnimate. So have your own GoAnimate Account now, it’s free. Who knows you’ll gonna be the next youtube celebrity. Use your creativity and humor with their amazing animation maker platform.

How to Make Animated Videos in GoAnimate

Since video makes explanation better, here is the the right please...

The Future of Animated Movie Makers

Since animated maker software are developing more advanced features, creating a simple clip could be more exciting as you try other features from the wider option of effects and backgrounds. If you don’t have any actors or artists to act on your funny scripts, you can experiment and explore your creativity to these animations. Especially now that these software are offering more realistic 3D images, amazing speeches and sounds.

Other big companies are also using animated maker providers to advertise, be known and promote stuffs. Some even use these animations to their corporate presentations. PowerPoint and clip arts are too simple and are so yesterday. Be artistic and be impressive.Cartoons could say a lot...

More and more educators are using animated movie maker to complement their effective teaching materials and practices. More and more satires are going viral all around the web. Like that one I’ve seen about ‘how to tell your Korean mom you work at Twitter’ and ‘how to tell your Korean mom you are gay’ ROFL I know funny!

I think that animated makers will continue to spread in the future. Who cares if they’re boring to some. Who cares if some prefer Rebecca Black or Justin Bieber to spare their boring times.

Anime is anime. Everything is possible with creativity.

      Just a thought, xtranormaldotcom is no longer with us. It is no more, it has gone to meet its maker. It has decreased, extinct,gone away.

      I tried goanimate but I was looking for something more professional to create 3D animations for my next iphone game. I tried and Im really impressed with their service. They are an an online animation maker. They have a huge collection of 3D animations that you can customize online in real time and apply directly to your 3D characters. Its great for creating animations quickly and their pricing is really cheap considering your getting a days worth of an animators time.
