Continuing from the Part one, where we reviewed Slideshare, we have saved even a better product for you in the Second part. Its Animoto - A auto video generation website, that allows user to choose images and music of his/her choice and create a video.

Animoto uses a patent pending Cinematic Artificial Intelligence ™ technology, that thinks like an actual director and editor. It analyzes and combines user-selected images and music with the same sophisticated post-production skills & techniques that are used in television and film, besides high motion designs ensuring no two videos are same ever (Even when identical images, music and order is used). Have a look on the sample video.

The main page starts with a demo and the user feels comfortable with the new product, thanks to some thought put by the creators for user experience. Creating a video is rather straight forward.

- Choose a video type. You can have a 30 sec short video (free version - for 10 to 12 images (approx.)) or a bigger Full length video (Paid version - unlimited number of images and music upto 10 MB).

- Upload the image(s), either from your computer or retrieve them using one of the sharing website (Flickr, Facebook, Smugmug, Picase and photobucket are supported by Animoto)

- Upload the music, from your computer or from Animoto's collection. (Yes, they have a decent collection of music in 3 different genre - Indie Rock, Electronica and Hip Hop and you can obviously hear the sample before selecting it)

- Provide some information about the Video, such as Name and description (for end-of-video credits) . If you think you need to make some changes, in the process, you can always go back. (before creating the video that is).

Click the Create Video button, sit back and relax. Watch your video being created or wander to some distractions provided in terms of youtube videos. Watching these videos do not interrupt (or even affect, I suppose) the video creation process.

Wait a couple of minutes and Voila!! your own, brand new, unique video is ready. you will be intimated about this on your email too, so you need not keep waiting on the website for long.

The feature that strike me the most is the simplicity of the process . Video creation is a breeze and extremely easy. User interface is pretty decent too.

The 3 month old website (well, 2.5 to be more precise) is doing pretty good with the video creations, but the speed of video is not very fast. Also more added features are welcome too. Sadly, I dint get the embed code for the sample video for my free account (or may be I simply missed where it was(!?))

The Tech Mag Rating - 7.0/10

PS - The company intent to acquire Google next year!

Edit - Thanks to Nate for providing the embed code of the sample video.
