Take a look at the video below to get a good impression of the clever user interface and how easy it is to find your way around the software. You’ll also get to see some of the mentioned features.

Drag-and-Drop Editor

A drag-and-drop video editor is one of the quickest and easiest ways to create high-quality videos. Here are some of the advantages of using a drag-and-drop video editor:

1. You can create videos quickly and easily
2. You don’t need any prior video editing experience
3. You can create professional-looking videos without spending a lot of money
4. You can make videos that are unique and stand out from the crowd
5. You can easily add your own personal touch to your videos

Advanced eye-catching Text Animations

CreateStudio Pro comes packed with incredible text animations. That’s great news, because addding text animations to your video content can be a great way to add some visual interest, and it can also help to convey important information. Some other advantages of using eye-catching text animations in your video content:

1. Text animations can help you to grab attention and make your videos more engaging.
2. They can be used to highlight key points or messages in your videos.
3. Text animations can add a touch of fun and personality to your videos.
4. They can help to make complex concepts easier to understand.
5. Text animations can make your videos more accessible to viewers with hearing impairments or who speak different languages.

You can animate text in a lot of several ways. You can animate text by word, letters, randomly and so on. Some of the effects are sliding, zooming, fading, 3D, Rotate, Skew and more! The video below shows you a few examples and how it works.

2D and 3D animated characters

A great feature of CreateStudio Pro is that it comes packed with 3D and 2D characters. Characters are perfect to use for your explainer videos or for creating a video-ad. Why? Well because digital characters are attention-grabbing, plain and simple. They’re usually bright, colorful, and larger-than-life, which makes them impossible to ignore. If you want to make sure that your video gets noticed, adding a digital character is a great way to do it.

Another reason is that digital characters can also be used to add a bit of humor to your videos. Whether they’re cracking jokes or simply acting silly, they can put a smile on viewers’ faces and make your content more enjoyable to watch. And when people enjoy watching your videos, they’re more likely to share them with others.

These two videos give a good impression of the possibilities of the 2D and 3D characters.

Transitions, Effects and Assets

CreateStudio Pro comes packed with assets, like masks, images, transitions, shapes, templates, audio / music, stickers, emoticons and so on. These valuable assets will help you to find what you need to create the video and the effects where you are after, without the need to leave the application every time you need something.

The transition effects are incredible. You can create eye-catching transitions from one scene to another. Best thing of it all is that it’s as simple as point-and-click. The advantage of that is that it’s super easy to browse through the effects, give them a try and see if it brings the effect you are looking for.

The video below explains how the transition effects work and you’ll get a good glimpse of the possibilities.

CreateStudio Pro comes with over 400 VFX Effects that you can choose from! The amount is immense and will definitely help you achieving the desired result.

The next video takes you through all the assets, theme’s and more to make your life easier as a video creator.

CreateStudio Examples

You should have gotten quite a good impression of how CreateStudio Pro looks and feel. But how about some examples made by users? Images, in this case video speaks more than 1000 words!

Customer reviews

User reviews say a lot about a product or service. So that’s why we alway take a look at the reviews of websites like Capterra or Trustpilot. What we see there is that the customers who have bought CreateStudio in the past are quite satisfied with it. On Trustpilot they get a score of 4.8, based on 347 reviews, with 90% 5-star reviews. Less then 4% of the total reviews are lower than 3-stars.

On Capterra we see a comparable outcome. With 179 placed reviews, they get a score of 4.8. More than 9 out of 10 people would recommend CreateStudio to someone else!


When it comes to pricing, things might seem a bit complicated. First, let’s take a look at a few other video editors.

Pricing of some competitors

Adobe Premiere Pro is a professional and advanced video-editing application. You can do almost everything with it, but that does come with more complexity. Adobe Premiere Pro costs $31.49/mo or $239.88/yr. Although it does come packed with features, it doesn’t include 2D or 3D characters. You need additional software for that or use Adobe After effects or Adobe Animate to do similar things. Both cost the same as Premiere Pro.

An alternative is the online video editor It’s great video editing software and doesn’t require a download. However, it doens’t come with 2D or 3D characters for example. The easy of use is excellent, as it is drag-and-drop easy like CreateStudio. Invideo costs $15/mo or $180/yr.

Vyond is another online video editor which is specialized in 2D character animation. They don’t offer 3D characters, but they do offer 3 visual styles. The cheapest plan is $25/mo, but the Vyond logo will be in the bottom left of each video. If you don’t want that, you need to pay either $54/mo (Premium plan / $649/yr) or $83/mo (Professional plan / $999/yr). If you don’t want an annual plan it will cost >60% more.

CreateStudio Pro Pricing

The pricing structure is a bit complicated, because they offer different kind of offers which all include different features.

The CreateStudio Standard plan grants lifetime access to CreateStudio software and includes the base package of the characters and templates. This plan costs $67 one-time. No returning costs! It’s great if you need video editing software, but don’t need more characters, templates or monthly new resources.

CreateStudio All Access plan costs $199/yr. It does includes lifetime access to CreateStudio, but it also comes packed with other great features and regular updates and new content:

  • You will have access to all characters, templates & video resources.
  • You’ll get NEW templates, characters, and video resources EVERY MONTH.
  • You will have access to a large royalty-free music library.
  • You’ll have access to our scene builder with new scenes every month.

We would highly recommend the $199/yr plan if you want to have access to each and every feature. In most cases it’s cheaper than the available alternatives, easier to use and comes with content each month.
