“A great tool to any business”

The fact that you can create a video in multiple languages and change it in a sec after you found a mistake or the information changed is a breeze. We stopped hassling around with making videos, having to take care of background, lighting, multiple runs, editing, etc. This is our way to go now, and we have already had clients wanting to use it for their own business.

CEMEX University Manager

"Synthesia is a great resource for Training & Communication initiatives"

At CEMEX University, we're using Synthesia to create explainer videos, where it's just easier, faster, and more cost-effective to use Synthesia than to record an actual person doing the explanation. Their great variety of avatars makes it easy to adapt it to most types of learning or communication initiatives, and the flexibility of producing the content in multiple languages has made Synthesia a go-to resource for many of our new programs.

"Great for training videos!"

We used to hire talent for our training videos. Each time we had to make a change, we had to re-hire talent. We can now re-generate training videos on demand, which means we can deliver our videos faster. We can produce more videos of higher quality.

Your explainer video questions, answered

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an explainer video?

The hint lies in the name itself. An explainer video is mainly used to explain a company's product, service or idea in a short video format. Explainer videos are mostly used for sales or video marketing, and are often featured on landing pages of websites.

Here's an example of a Synthesia explainer video.

How do you make explainer videos?

To make an explainer video, first think of what you want to achieve with the video and what message you want to send across. Then you can get into the video creation process itself, which involves 4 steps:

  1. Write a video script. Make sure you know exactly what to say and use the script to structure your video.
  2. Use video tools instead of a production company to simplify the process, and make it cost- and time-effective. A video maker like Synthesia allows you to create videos from text with realistic AI-avatars, saving you time, money, and nerves.
  3. Review your video clips to make sure the messaging is clear, and in line with what you want to achieve. Tweak your text, video templates, images or sound if necessary.
  4. Upload and track the performance. If in time you see that it needs to be changed, you can go back to your project in Synthesia, and quickly make edits to create an updated version. Just imagine how long this would take and how much it would cost using traditional video production!

How do I start an explainer video?

A good explainer video captures the viewer's attention right from the start, so make the first few seconds count! Here are 3 simple tips:

  1. Get to the point. In the beginning clearly outline a problem your product/service aims to solve, and introduce your product/service as the best solution to that problem.
  2. Make your messaging clear. Don't use ambiguous wording that will confuse viewers. Use simple and engaging language to make sure your message is understood.
  3. Make it visually appealing. A great explainer video should draw people in both with the message and with the way it looks. Use video styles in line with your branding, and keep it consistent throughout. Remember, less is more.

What is the best explainer video software?

To make an amazing explainer video, you need to find the best software. Luckily, you have a lot of choices: from an animated explainer video software to simple whiteboard explainer videos, the choice is yours. You can even make explainer videos for free.

However, if you are looking for software that makes the video creation process easy, stress-free and scalable, without sacrificing on the quality, Synthesia might just be the world's simplest video maker. Why?

Because you can type in your script, choose an AI avatar and preferred voice, and Synthesia STUDIO will generate a video that looks as realistic as if you were using a real human actor. In just minutes, we might add.  You can customize the video with own pictures, shapes, backgrounds to produce an even more engaging video.
