For our customers who’d like to integrate an animated character into their static content – such as e-learning lessons or marketing materials – we offer the ability to output your avatar’s “scenes” as transparent WebM video.
You can use these videos as-is on an HTML page (such as a lesson in your Learning Management System (LMS)). You can also convert them to be embedded in other programs (such as Microsoft PowerPoint) or to edit them with more advanced video software (such as Adobe Premiere).
WebM Video is a royalty-free HTML5 video format optimized for the Web and supported by all major browsers (Safari 14.1 added native support for WebM, and all later versions support the format).
We chose WebM for a few reasons:
Back in the day, CodeBaby created a product called CodeBaby Studio. That desktop-based product, which allowed users to create video scenes with CodeBaby avatars, was retired several years ago as CodeBaby shifted to focus on more dynamic conversations.
Based on feedback we’ve received from our customers (as well as from previous CodeBaby Studio users), we realized there is still a need for easy-to-use tools that provide friendly and informative characters to be incorporated into various other content.
So we set out to find a way that we could use the same tools we now make available for dynamic animated avatars to create static video outputs. And CodeBaby Video was born.
