Animoto, the service that lets you turn your images into a professional video, is launching a new feature that will get you into the holiday spirit (as if you needed help in that department!). Taking the concept of the e card, Animoto is taking things to the next level by offering holiday-themed greeting cards from your Animoto videos.
The whole holiday theme option is in fact incorporated into Animoto’s music library as well, with its own holiday genre. What’s great about the new holiday Animoto themes is that they’re very crisp and are well designed. Customized with your own images and music selection, you may like the new Animoto holiday themes enough to replace those Walgreens-printed cards you send out year after year.
Unfortunately the new holiday e-cards don’t appear to be embeddable, but their clean interface for their individual landing pages make up for this. We’re also hoping to see a holiday theme option for Animoto’s Facebook app, but this currently isn’t an option. For a free greeting card option, you’ll be limited to 30-seconds. $3.00 will get you a fill-length video, while a $30 annual Animoto subscription gives you an unlimited number of full-length videos.
