Xtranormal vs. MeMoov

Yesterday I got the change to explore MeMoov. It is a site that allows you to create animated movies. An email address is necessary to create a free account. I think it could be a good tool for students. Since the site is very similar to Xtranormal, I've provided you with a "head to head" review below.

Here are the features in MeMoov that I prefer:
  • The characters and settings are very interesting and motivating.
  • You can make the characters move throughout the scene.
  • You can use your computer's microphone to create voices for your characters.
  • You can add objects to your scene. You can even make them move!
  • Options, options, options!

Xtranormal that I prefer:
  • The user interface is very intuitive.
  • You can just type in your script and your movie is finished.
  • It is easy to drag and drop different features onto the script.
If you want more options, use MeMoov. If you want something with controlled options and an intuitive interface, use Xtranormal.

I hope this helps!

  1. Do you have any comments on xtranormal changing it's price structure without any notice.

    I was in the middle of doing a project with Spanish students and they could never publish.

    They signed up for accounts early in Dec when assets were free. They went to publish on Dec 22, the day they change their policy, and couldn't publish because the assets they used now cost money.

    If you sign up for an account Dec 22 your would receive 300 free points and could publish at least one free movie.

    They haven't acknowledged any of my calls for help on their support page.

  2. Yes, Carol, I agree that the new pricing structure also completely prohibits me from using Xtranormal. It's a shame.
