What people say about Flixier
I’ve been looking for a solution like Flixier for years. Now that my virtual team and I can edit projects together on the cloud with Flixier, it tripled my company’s video output! Super easy to use and unbelievably quick exports.
My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.
I'm so relieved I found Flixier. I have a YouTube channel with over 700k subscribers and Flixier allows me to collaborate seamlessly with my team, they can work from any device at any time plus, renders are cloud powered and super super fast on any computer.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a photo animation?
A photo animation is a video or GIF that either features one photo moving around on screen or multiple photos stitched together to create an animation.
Can a picture be an animation?
Yes. GIFs, for example, are technically images, not videos (as far as our computers and phones are concerned), but they are most often used to display animations.
Can I turn a picture into a moving picture?
Of course! You can use an online editor like Flixier to animate an image and make it a little more dynamic. Our simplified keyframe system allows you to zoom in and out of the image and pan the camera around. Combine this with an intro and outro transition and some fitting music and sound effects and you can create the illusion of movement and make a dynamic short video out of a single image.
