- Speed up or slow down your video so it lines up with the voice-over. Your entire visual recording will probably need to be sped up, but not at a uniform pace throughout. Cut your visuals into sections, and adjust the speed for each illustration individually to edit for flow and pace.
When edits are done, you can export and share your new animated video with your client, your creative team, or with your friends on social media.
Examples of different whiteboard video styles.
Aside from the classic whiteboard animations described above, artists have also replicated the whiteboard animation style using digital tools.
Some artists combine whiteboard animation with digital assets in post-production. This allows you to give your characters movement using Adobe Animate but retain the look and process of drawing each image by hand.
Alternatively, other creators replicate the whiteboard style exclusively using digital designs and illustrations. They achieve the same educational tone without physically drawing on a whiteboard.
However you choose to approach whiteboard animations, keep this in mind: “Push yourself to always be improving. I’ve experimented quite a bit, and I’ve tried different pens, different lighting, different boards, and different styles of editing,” says Wooding. If you’re not totally satisfied with your video, try something new, and make something different. The possibilities are endless, and the tools are at your fingertips.
