HLC: Whiteboard Animation

Whiteboard animation with stills, movies and hand movement in Meme’er

Yes, no need to spend those hundreds of dollars on a whiteboard animation using same old media which even your competitor will use. Draw up your own unique whiteboard and excel NOW!

Video Creation Steps:

Setup you base media
  • You can create the image on paper or on ppt which you want to be drawn.
  • Once above image is ready, you can break it up into pages if you want camera to move page to page (to get “next page” experience)
  • You will need a “Hand with a pen” image (or could be a gif). Pen could be replaced with chalk or pencil etc.
  • For the writing instrument (pen/ pencil etc.), select appropriate “ink” image. For pen it could be a blue or black circle.
Setting up media for usage

Load the image in Meme’er storyboard for few frames.

Trace the outlined image which you wanted to be drawn in the sequence you want it to be drawn.

Do the standard transparent movie creation on frames created using the coordinates

And that’s all. One by one, you can create as many pages as you wish (we have created 4 here)

Summary:

  1. Human voice might be better suited for some cases, suit yourself!
  2. The basic video creation is very easy, and could be done by a grade 2 student. The final touch take time and patience 🙂
  3. This involves creativity, so unless you feel fresh, better to wait for the tide to get the best idea and implement it better!
  4. There are many places to get vector images. Suit yourself with the one you feel most comfortable with.
