How To Make Animated Videos

Animated films like cartoons let you create worlds you can only dream of, by stitch together frames of still illustrations. Animations are fresh and engaging ways to tell stories, and the process has been refined over the years from early hand-drawn Disney classics to huge budget PIxar films involving massive rendered 3D graphics.

3. Drag and drop effect to timeline

Once you find the video effect you wish you use, select it in the library, and drag it down on to your clip in the timeline. Give your video that 2D cartoon look, pencil drawing or painted look with a video filter. There are lots of filters you can choose from, but to narrow them down, select “Nature Painting” from the drop down and play around with the effect found here - Auto Sketch, Comic, Oil Paint, RotoSketch and more.
