Great resource for Training & Communication initiatives

We're using Synthesia to create explainer videos. It's just easier, faster, and more cost-effective to use Synthesia than to record an actual person doing the explanation.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an instructional video, an explainer video, a how-to video, and a tutorial video?

That question almost requires its own blog post and has been debated for a while.

In general, here's how we differentiate the four types:

  • Explainer videos are a type of marketing video, where a company explains its product/service. It's more sales-y in nature than the other three.
  • We see a how-to video and a tutorial video as synonyms - their purpose is to share a step-by-step solution to a problem, e.g. "How to create tutorials" (very meta, we know).
  • Instructional videos are a bit difficult to categorize. In essence, instructional videos do just that - provide instructions. A how-to video is instructional by nature, a training video can be instructional, but isn't always.

Can you make animated videos with Synthesia?

Currently, you can't create animated videos using Synthesia STUDIO. We strive to make video production affordable for everyone, and drawing custom animated characters simply isn't that.

However, you can create a high-quality DIY video online in just minutes, either from scratch or using a professionally-designed template. Customize the template with your background, music, images, shapes, transitions, and video.
