As you probably know, Animotica accepts most of the video formats. In case if there’re any problems with playing the video, you should use ‘Prepare video file for Animotica project’ tool that is accessible directly from the first screen of the video editor.

So if your video format is “.mp4”, “.wmv,” “.avi,” “.3gp”, “.3gpp”, “.m4v”, “.mov”, “.mkv”, “.mts”, “.m2ts”, “.ts”, or “.webm”,and is not locked you’re good to go!

Unfortunately, Animotica doesn’t support FLV and M2S (MPEG-2).

Worry not though, here is the list of online video converters websites with instructions on how to work with them. Pick one and use it to convert your FLV or MPEG-2 video to MPEG-4 in a minute!
