Transform flat documents into smart videos with voiceovers and special effects

Videate uses your marked up document as a script to incorporate text-to-voice and special effects to provide your viewers with all the highlights, emphasis, and explanation a human would.

Here are just a few of the options you can incorporate using the Videate markup:

  • Click, check, type, and more - All the typical actions your users would take is easy to demonstrate
  • Highlight - Use boxes, cursors, pointers or shadows to show the viewer exactly what you want them to see
  • Zoom - focus in on the sections of your software you want the viewer to see
  • Blur - Hide information such as passwords or license keys

Build it Once, Update it Forever

Simple Document Markup Anyone Can Use

Even if you’re just using a knowledgebase article or Google doc, you can make exciting videos from them. Once you’ve set up your document, making changes for new releases or new options is quick and easy - no need to re-do your markup. It’s easier and faster than Captivate or Camtasia.

Videate’s simple document markup is easy to learn and there are lots of resources to help.
