To create or edit the first video using Animotica you don't need special skills. If you have a question most likely you will find an answering bellow.

  • What’s Animotica?

    Animotica is the go-to movie maker for Windows 10. Edit, cut, trim and add effects to your videos, photos, and presentations for social media, YouTube, work, and life in a snap.  

  • What’s your edge?

    Not to brag, but Animotica is among the top video editing apps on the Microsoft Store for a reason – crafting unforgettable content with us is just that easy. Drag, drop, cut, and ad flair – all in but several clicks of your mouse.

  • Who should use our editing software?

    It’s never about “should” with us. We’ve made Animotica with the intention of making professional video editing simple, engaging and intuitive. Our product is literally for everyone looking to make an awesome video from a professional photographer, to an aspiring YouTuber, to a mom willing to make an amazing prom video for her kids without investing an entire fortune.

  • What I can and can’t do with Animotica?

    Let’s start with what you can do:

    • Create visually stunning content

    • Edit the ratio of the video to fit your favored social media (YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram)

    • Add and edit clips at will

    • Split and trim clips and videos

    • Adjust the color and lighting of the video

    • Add effects, stickers, and transitions between the clips

    • Add titles and text to your videos

    • Add background music and voice overs to your photos and videos

    • Create professional, sharp, crisp video content

    As for what you can’t do:

    • You can’t make a baby seal sad

    • You won’t have the option to undo season 8 of Game of Thrones. You could edit your own version though…

    • You will not be able to conquer the world (Although that one’s uncertain. We haven’t thoroughly tested the possibilities. Yet.)


  • Where can I find my saved video?

    By default Animotica store all video files, with extension '*.mp4', in next folder : **C:\Users\{your PC name}\Videos\Animotica**

  • Rendering stops at XX%, how to finish rendering?

    If your rendering process stops at XX% it means that you do not have enough RAM memory on your PC in most cases, please try to close not used apps and free RAM memory on your PC.

    If you have a rendering process 0-100% long time, please close the program, check free space on your disk, re-start PC, open app and try again, sometimes it helps;

  • How to turn off motion/zooming in effect on photos?

    If you want to turn off photo motion effect (Ken Burns) for all your clips, go to ‘Project Settings’ -> click on ‘Photo’ tab -> switch off ‘Use photo motion effect’ switcher.
    Also, you can do it for each photo/clip separately, select your photo clip to edit -> click on ‘Motion’ tab  ->  switch off ‘Motion Effect’ switcher.
