Animoto Improves Again

Animoto, which I included in my 12 favorite resources of 2008, has just announced another great improvement. Until now users did not have any control over the length of time that an image was displayed for or quickly an image faded in or out. As of today, users can now have control over those elements in creating a full-length video. Animoto typically charges customers to make full-length videos, but teachers can create an education account and gain access to full-length video creation for free.

If you enjoy Animoto, please consider taking a few seconds to vote for them in the Crunchies 2008 Awards sponsored by TechCrunch. You can vote for Animoto here.
