These days, the demand for video is skyrocketing. They say, video is 90% more engaging than anything else available online.
Your competitors are using videos while you sit by and let them eat up your profits.
You want your own marketing video too but outsourcing cost is just too high so you decided to create it on your own.
You are looking for a side hustle. You want to earn a quick income by creating videos for clients but the problem is you can’t afford the software used by professionals.
This is where Vidtoon comes and promises an easy drag and drop video creation tool and that you can crank up any video in 5 minutes or less.
There’s just one type of person who definitely shouldn’t buy this product – you’ll find out if you’re that kind of a person in just a moment. But first…
- The drag and drop feature
- Customizable backgrounds and characters
- Portable software, no need to actually install it
- Text to speech feature
- The front-end price
- Need to input your email address every time you start the software
- Lack of basic keyboard shortcuts
- Can’t preview images when trying to import to gallery

What Exactly is Vidtoon?
Vidtoon is a desktop/laptop based (PC/Mac) video creation software that is specifically designed to help you create cartoon-style videos, explainer videos and animations.
For internet marketers, this is particularly useful for concocting short marketing videos, usually 10-15 seconds, that can be used to promote products and services on YouTube and Facebook.
It has an inbuilt library with 34 HD backgrounds, 25 HD characters each with 30 different animations, and 200+ royalty free music tracks.
You are free to import your own backgrounds and images.
How it Works
Accessing the Product
Right after purchase, you’ll receive email with your system generated login username and password.
Downloading and Running the Software
Since this software needs to reside on your Mac or PC, you need to download it. The software file for PC is over 600 MB and can take a little longer to download depending on your internet connection and location.
I don’t know why but the download speed was so slow it took me 4 long hours to download. The file is hosted on “Ionos Hidrive” which is owned by 1&1.
After downloading just click the Vidtoon icon to start the software.
It’s a portable-type software so you can start it without actually installing on your PC/Laptop.
Why do I need to emphasize this? In the past, I have had bad experiences with installing newly launched and “marketer-created” app/software. Most of those that I tried to install has system compatibility issues making it impossible to use.
The only annoying thing here is that every time you start the software, you need to enter the email address you used when purchasing the software.
Here are the product features and benefits as promised on the product salespage plus my side comment on each.
“Works Fast For Quick, Profitable Videos! No need to spend hours creating a video. Get in and get done!”
Yes, you may be able to crank out lots of short animated videos with this software specially if you are the creative nerd but the question is, how are you going to make money from it?
“Ready-To-Go Animated Characters Included. For any scenario and niche you want to dominate”
Ok, I really like the ready made characters plus the built-in scenarios/actions that come with each of it.
“Massive Royalty Free Library. With HD background images and music files ready to use with a click!”
No comment with this, my hard drive is full of it.
“There Are NO MONTHLY FEES. One download and you’re good to go”.
Yes, the front end price is fairly cheap.
If you are serious in making money creating videos for clients then the upgrade may worth it.
“Perfect Pixel Positioning. Lets you put objects EXACTLY where you want them on screen”
Every modern video creation software should be able to do that.
Microsoft and Google Dynamic Text To Speech Options Included. Giving your videos a realistic sounding voice”
This is great if you don’t want to use your own voice on the video. You just need more time to edit the robot-sounding voice to make it a little natural specially the timing and spacing of words.
“ADD ON #1 Free Commercial License Upgrade so you can sell all videos created with VidToon.
“Commercial license” seems to be the common salespage pitch these days. Every product launcher in the IM industry does this kind of offer.
“ADD ON #2 “Ten Days Of Giveaways” Event: Receive $100’s in software and DFY packs”
As of this writing, I really have no idea where and how to avail this.
What’s Exactly Inside
I spent $27 just to get inside and actually use and evaluate this product. I’m not interested with all the upgrades since I’m not doing any freelance works nor interested in reselling the software.
Here, you’ll be able to download the software. There’s a dedicated page where you can watch all the training videos on how to use the software.
After downloading and running the software locally, here’s the main dashboard.
With a basic account (Commercial License), without all the upgrades, VidToon provides 34 background templates. Just drag and drop your desired background template into the canvas, then resize to fit the whole window.
You can add additional images, videos, and audios for the particular project using the gallery feature. Just click the plug sign to import files from your hard drive.
For now, you can’t view the actual thumbnail for each image so there will be a guessing game if you don’t know the exact name of the file you are trying to import into the gallery.
You can only import one file at a time.
It seems that once uploaded there’s no way to delete a file from the gallery.
I have a total of 25 ready made characters for my account but I can add more using the gallery feature if I wanted to.
Now, this is what I like with Vidtoon. It has over 20 appearance styles, or actions you can choose from. This can make your character more interesting and a little more unique from other people using the same character type.
Text to Speech (TTS) and Audio Recorder
This is one of the cool part of Vidtoon. You have the option to use Text to Speech technology or record your own to add voice to your video.
For text to speech, you have 2 options: Use Google text to speech or use in-built TTS inside your computer
If you want to add some caption, just drag and drop the text symbol into your timeline. You can change color, add background, change fonts, and even add an animation effect.
You can add a music background to add more flare to your video. If you don’t like any of the preloaded tracks, you can add more sounds from your hard drive. Just scroll down and click the plus sign located below the music list.
The little problem I can see here is that you have to scroll all the way down when searching for music tracks.
It’s a good habit to always save your work so you won’t be at lost when there’s sudden interruption. Sorry folks, no keyboard shortcut for this.
So you are now ready to use your newly created video? Just click the export button to convert the file and save to your hard drive.

Who Should Buy or Use This Product
If you are going to buy this product with the notion that it can make you money, or that you were made to believe that you can make an audience addicting videos in 5 minutes, you need to think twice.
This tool is great for people who are already into video marketing or for freelancers who create videos for clients.
It’s for experienced affiliate marketers, bloggers, and product creators who need a quick way to create promotional videos for their products and services.
It’s for video hobbyists or people just looking for some fun thing to do.
And yes, it can also for beginners BUT those who have genuine interest in entering the video creation niche and are willing to focus and be successful in this field.
I hate to say this but it’s not for desperate make money online beginners or people who are desperately looking to earn badly-needed money online.
You’ll only get disappointed.
The salespage promise of a 3-step process of creating animated videos and making tons of money from it is far from reality specially if you don’t have any background using video editors.
There’s always a learning curve that you have to go through. Heck, I spent a couple of hours trying to instinctively understand how to operate the software.
Moreover, it’s almost hard to produce quality videos that people will get addicted to when you are emotionally disturbed… because you are always anxious of where to get money to buy food and pay the bills.
Heck, it’s even harder to start learning how to use the software when you are in such a dire situation.
What VidToon is Not
Vidtoon is not a money producing machine. It’s not some kind of magic lamp where you can just state your wish then “sit back and be ready to get enormous profit“.
It’s just a simple short video creation tool.
Your being able to make profit from it depends on your creativity, artistry and some kind of luck.
For experienced video enthusiasts, this software may save you some time because of the built-in characters, backgrounds, animations and other templates.
Some Ideas on What You Can Do With VidToon
Aside from using VidToon to create animation videos or product explainer, you can also use it to create interesting video quotes.
Don’t forget to include your product brand or logo just below the video. Publish it on Facebook for the purpose of brand awareness. If it gets viral, then in a way you achieved the purpose of introducing your brand to thousands of Facebook users.
Create explainer videos about the current pandemic and help spread awareness. Help people understand more about the dangers of this disease.
Create short emotional or inspiring videos then upload it to YouTube and Facebook and see if it gets viral. Then establish a vlog for your new-found niche.
If you’re the creative type and can actually crank out a really good animation video, you can create 50’s or even 100’s of short videos then package it and sell to social media marketers.
For quick cash, offer your video animation services on gig sites like Fiverr.com or on freelance sites like Upwork.com.
Summary and Conclusion
Vidtoon could be a handy tool for creating short animated videos as wall as explainer videos for your products or services. If you love creating animations or if you need to instantly compose a 10-second marketing video, this app is for you.
This app is still very new so there’s still many features that needs improvement. There’s a great potential for Vidtoon but let’s just hope that the creator would not abandon it down the road.
As per my experience, launching a new software then stopping development after some time is a common behavior that most internet marketer software producers have done in the past.
If you are looking for a video tool to add to your arsenal or just looking for something to have fun during this pandemic, then by all means buy it.
