Usability:- Xtranormal is an animation solution that is available for educators in web version and as a desktop application.

And while creation they can set their camera angles, position, gesture, colour etc. Since this tool is freemium,it has ‘point system’ which unlocks the paid actors and scenes. Before using, new educators can also watch featured movies and trending movies to get the overview of the actual video quality and features.
