A great course on Vyond. (maybe you know it used to be called GoAnimate). In the video course I will guide you every step of the way, with every single tool, showing you the best methods that I myself have used to create many videos for my clients.

  • This video course is a quick way to learn software and get started right away

  • It will be very easy to go from studying to making your first movie

  • I'll show you all the tools to create a complete video

  • You will see how to use the tools (even in an advanced way) and make videos that are not simply good, rather outstanding!

  • The sections of the course will lead you to study all the tools in the interface

I have been using Vyond for many years, since it was called GoAnimate and it was the only software program for building 2D animations. Today it is the most widely used program and certainly the most frequently imitated. Since it changed its name to Vyond Studio it has become a super software program that will allow you to build videos of all kinds, in fact even customize characters through the Character Creator , making them look like whoever you want!

Vyond promises anyone will be able to make their own videos, even those who have never made a graphic or a video!

What videos can you build?

  • Communication videos

  • Marketing videos

  • Sales videos

  • Branding videos

  • Storytelling videos

  • Fiction videos

... and many others. With Vyond Studio, the sky’s the limit!

I have created specific sections by dividing everything you will learn during the course by topic:

  • Introduction (lessons 1-4)

  • The tools lez. (5-28)

  • Context-sensitive tools (lessons 29-36)

  • Timeline (Lesson 37)

Vyond in constant growth (lessons 38-41)

REMEMBER: it is not important that you have 2D graphics basics, Vyond is the right tool even for those who do not know the world of video or the world of animation at all. It is the right tool for you and it will quickly teach you how to make your videos!

I really hope you can be with me throughout this journey, which I have designed with passion and professionalism.

Thanks for your attention, a warm greeting.

Course content is all right but is challenging to follow because of the background audio. Yes, we've got it; the author does not speak English and hired a narrator to read the translation. The most lesson starts with an Italian voice, and it still playing through the whole lesson. What learning values it brings to the students? My answer is - nothing but destruction. It gives me a headache because I have to filter out this background noise from the actual narration. With all compliments to a good narrator's voice, the narrator delivers no engagement; it is monotonic and boring. After lessons or two, I get tired of this annoying audio and go to do something else. I like the content by cannot bypass this. Otherwise, you can learn from the training, especially if you are a beginner. My advice is to remove all background audio, except maybe the first lesson, to help people understand why voice-over is not synced to the talking head. I wish I knew Italian; the course probably is much better on its Italian version.

the voice is kind of monotone, but I am learning a little things so far. I have already made a video, so looking for ways to improve. I am sure it will help with that.

This is one of the best courses I’ve ever had online. The explanations go in-depth into the program, and Giovanni also provides very precious bits of advice about movie-making.
