Addressing mostly novice users or those who prefer a more straightforward approach, the application provides an attractive interface that carries an uncluttered design. Boasting numerous easy-to-access tools for inserting the preferred media types (images, sounds, videos) and creating compositions, it will exhibit an intuitive handling.
One will be able to customize video compositions with different predefined effects, add custom text strings and create intricate objects. All the loaded objects and media can be edited selectively and assigned a preferred duration in the animation’s timeline.
Once all the content and video characteristics have been defined, users will be able to save their animations to multiple output destinations. When exporting to a local drive, one will be able to choose from some of the most common video formats: 3GP, ASF, AVI, FLV, MOV, MP4, MPG, etc. The videos can also be exported directly to a CD / DVD or uploaded to several media sharing services.
In order to increase the user-friendliness, Express Animate will also offer people the choice of directly saving their files to digital devices such as iPhones, iPads, PSPs or other mobile devices. However, although the loaded content wasn’t too complex and the added objects were basic, on our tests the application took considerable time to export just a 30 seconds clip.

It will allow them to create custom compositions, add various media types and predefined effects and objects. Providing easy exporting capabilities to numerous video formats, it ensures that users will not have issues in saving their creations.
