Review: Explaindio 3.0 

Those who have used previous iterations of the revolutionary Explaindio Video Creator will be delighted to learn that version 3.0 has many great new features that make the product an even better proposition.

And for those who are yet to discover Explaindio’s capabilities, take a look at this short video.

Pretty cool isn’t it?

And it isn’t coming soon; it’s here right now!

Explaindio 3.0 features the very best of the previous versions, but this release offers a whole lot more that will allow you to make highly professional and engaging videos in no time at all. (Well, it does take some time, but not much!)

Released in late 2016, Explaindio 3.0 is the only video creator currently on the market that combines 2D & 3D animations, whiteboard sketch elements, and full motion video.



The new version utilizes some exciting features, spawned by the latest innovations in videos, including:

    • Simultaneous animations
    • Full multi-timeline editing
    • 2D and 3D animations
    • Morphing feature
    • Import of external 3D elements
    • 3D models and animation customization (the 3D moving animation models are terrific)
    • 180+ pre-made text animations
    • 140+ pre-made video, image, doodle object animations
    • 200 pre-done animated scenes
    • 800 doodle sketch images
    • 100 full HD background videos
    • 6 cartoon characters
    • 300+ fonts
    • Background audio tracks
    • Easy video creation wizard
    • Keyframe animations
    • New inbuilt transitions
    • Import of multi-formats – AVI, WMV, FLV, MOV, and the previously supported MP4.
    • Integration with Youzign and Pixabay
    • Excellent training video tutorials in the Members’ area
    • Access to the Explaindio Facebook Group

I have not purchased any of the upsells, although it is an impressive offering . . .

  • OTO 1: The Explaindio Template Club has various bundles of animation slide templates, images, and video backgrounds, at different price points.

  • OTO 2: Explaindio FBX to ZF3D File Convertor unlocks access to over 200,000 3D free models and animations.
  • OTO 3: 200 x 3D beautifully designed intros/outros and sting animations, to add more engagement and branding to your videos. (There is a pack of 100 offered if you say no!)
  • OTO 4: 700 x professional transitions, to take you seamlessly from one scene to another. (350 available if you say no!)



Some users might have minor quibbles, but the good news is that this package keeps improving, as author Andrew Darius is very responsive to the needs of his client base. If users want a particular feature, he tries to provide it. We believe that Explaindio 3 is just about the best 3D animation available at an affordable price.

Dubious music track selection, although you can add your own, locate free royalty-free music, or buy it at a reasonable rate.

Theme selection is somewhat limited on the basic purchase, which might irk those who don’t have the creative talent to produce their own.



Obviously, I am a fan of Andrew Darius. He is one of the most reputable online marketers, and makes software that is genuinely valuable to others.

The Explaindio Video Creator has been around for three years and keeps getting better.

I had used EVC and its successor EVC2, and found them both very useful.

However, 3.0 is a bold and beautiful step, and is hard to beat if you are looking for the best 3D animation software.

Explaindio 3.0 has more features and flexibility, and it is easier to use.

It is worth the money for the whiteboard feature alone.
