The key questions to ask yourself

There are two key questions you'll need to ask yourself before choosing which version of VideoScribe to use.

2. Where do you prefer to work?

If you prefer to work on the go, VideoScribe for your Browser is a great choice as it can be used on your tablet. If you prefer to base yourself in the office, then VideoScribe for your Desktop is the perfect choice.

Plus, VideoScribe for your Desktop can be used offline, giving you a welcomed break from the constant Slack and Teams messages!

You can log into VideoScribe for your Browser from your laptop, computer or tablet, meaning as long as you have WIFI access, you can create videos from anywhere... say hello to poolside working! 

We've outlined the main features of VideoScribe for your Browser below.

Use 'scenes' to create videos

Videos are created using 'scenes'. You'll be able to transition between your scenes using a variety of different effects such as fade or erase. 

A variety of different canvas sizes 


You'll get to choose between a vertical, square or landscape blank canvas. This means you can easily create videos for different social platforms as well as your website. This is ideal if you're always creating content for multiple platforms and for different purposes. 

Use on your tablet or desktop

You can access VideoScribe for your Browser on your tablet, such as your iPad, or from your desktop. This means you'll have ultimate flexibility on where you create your videos. 

Upload backing music or record a voiceover 


You can upload or record your own backing music, or record a voiceover to add to your video creation. This is a great tool to level up your videos and make them even more engaging and inspiring.

Export as an MP4 or GIF


You can export your creations as MP4 or GIF files straight from VideoScribe for your Browser. This means you can create GIFs for your website or emails without the need to use an MP4 to GIF converter tool.


VideoScribe for your Desktop

This is a great option if you don't always have access to a stable internet connection. With VideoScribe for your Desktop, you'll gain access to our infinite canvas, meaning you can zoom in and out and add as many images as you want.

The main features of VideoScribe for your Desktop are outlined below:

Infinite canvas

You may not be familiar with the term 'infinite canvas', but it really is as simple as it sounds. Instead of being restricted to a square or landscape canvas, you'll have an endless 'infinite' canvas to work with! 

You'll get access to a camera tool which means you can visually zoom in and out, allowing you to explain complex topics with ease and add as much content as you want.

Create landscape videos and templates

With VideoScribe for your Desktop, you'll only be able to create landscape videos and this means you'll only have access to landscape video templates. This is the ideal format for slideshow presentations, website content and YouTube videos, but not so great for social media platforms. So, if you're a social media marketer, this may not be the best option for you! Of course there are a few hacks and tricks you could use to make it work for social media, but VideoScribe for your Browser is much easier and faster.

Export as MOV, AVI or JPEG/PNG sequence


With VideoScribe for your Desktop, you'll be able to export your videos in MOV or AVI format, or as JPEG/PNG sequences. 

You can also choose your frame rate and the resolution of your video, e.g. 'full HD', 'mobile'...

No internet access required 

As VideoScribe for your Desktop is downloadable, it does not require a WIFI connection to be used. This is great if you struggle to access a stable WIFI or internet connection, or if you prefer to work on the go.

Royalty-free music library

With VideoScribe for your Desktop, you'll get access to a large royalty-free music library so you can easily add backing tracks to your creations. From pop music to blues, our extensive library is guaranteed to have something for every type of project.
