      Good work, Very nice list, happy to say I’ve tried most of these – some of them have newer cutting edge tools than mentioned in here (e.g. Slidely should be in top 5 with Promo, their video tool, and Animoto and Magisto both have newer tools for video creation then are mentioned here, also worth showing bitable and viddyad.)

      Thanks Dita!
      Video tools mentioned here are not in any particular order, and randomly placed. However, you rightly said that Slidely, Animoto & Magisto are amongst the most powerful Video tools.
      For some specific purposes like Cutout-Use and Whiteboard Animation, Common Craft & VideoScribe are also quite useful and for sure will gain popularity as effective video content tool in 2017.
      Do let me know if you find any other tools useful as well.
      Cheers!
