3D Animation is the most modern style of explainer video. They are far much attractive as compared to 2D Animation. The use of 3D characters and animation is what makes the video attractive. If the producer of a 3D video is expert in this style and knows the basic skills to 3D animation, they will produce a memorable 3D video. The only problem is that 3D animation is expensive (almost double, or in some cases, triple the cost) as compared to 2D Animation. Maybe the reason why most people stick with 3D animation. But then, 3D animation is a no match to 2D Animation.

Whiteboard videos are the best solution for companies who want to explain complex messages in a simple and easy to understand manner.
