ok I just got an email about cloud animator and it looked like something I could use for future projects. 
My question is other than having an interactive video and being Free, what's the big difference between this and CTA3??

I can definitely create a 2d animated video in CTA3 (shoot even in iclone 6 based off this Creating a Title Sequence Wink

So is the interactive feature the only feature that separates cloud animator from CTA3 ?

It looks very similar but ...
You can not upload your own shapes (use images instead) and no pose-able or animate-able characters.
It does have the interactive feature which is nice.
To me it looks like an enhanced interactive power point presenter for web use.
I'm sure it's not meant to replace CTA but it will have it's own niche for interactive presentations.
Also, I'm not sure if it will always be free, just the Beta.

I played around with but i really don't see much of a use for it aside from basic slide shows. Pretty much what google has already done at http://slides.google.com 

Im looking forward to seeing the development of this project unfolds. I think the name itself is intriguing, maybe they have plans to integrate character animation functionality.

I'm not sure that I get the point of the yearly fee for the 2nd plan. Why would I want to pay for something I can't download and reuse on a website or social media?
Can someone please tell me what the advantage of this would be. 
Also, once you buy the Advanced plan, your money is non refundable which is something they fail to mention in the non existent fine print.

Hi... 

I'm not sure what you mean by "Why would I want to pay for something I can't download and reuse on a website or social media".

The whole point of Cloud Animator is to create animated projects that can be used on websites or social media so you can certainly do this with any plan.

The benefits of the Advanced plan over the free option is more storage space, more saved projects, and double the slides allowed in each project. (You can see the full differences HERE.)

It does not allow me to download anything. When I try to download, I get a message to "

I can only get an embed code that leads people back to this platform to play the video.

The Advanced plan doesn't offer self hosting. That is only available in the Business Plan.

With the Advanced plan you just embed the Cloud Animator project onto your website or social media just as you would a YouTube video. All your projects are safely stored on our servers and you have 5GB of storage space available. If you need self hosting then unfortunately you will need to upgrade to the Business Plan.
