How to Create a Hand-drawn Animation Video

Software to Make Hand Drawn Animation Videos

Software to Make Hand Drawn Animation Videos

I have been asked many times how to create the video effect of a hand doodling pictures and words on the screen.

I used to reply that you can only do it with Adobe After Effects, but it will be extremely time-consuming.

After Effects is too complex for this job. There is an easier and faster way.

In this lesson I show you how to create your own hand-drawn animation video in just 3 simple steps.


First, download and install Explaindio Video Creator ($1 trial), then do the 3 steps.

  • STEP 1: Create a New Sketch Scene
  • STEP 2: Add Text
  • STEP 3: Close Canvas

Let me know how it goes, and is it useful for you.

Printers with Direct CD DVD Disc Printing

Printers with Direct CD DVD Disc Printing

We take a lot of filming time and  editing effort to make our video look professional.

If the video is to be burned onto a disc, then the disc jolly well look just as professional.

Hence, I am always on a look out for the latest printers with CD / DVD / Bluray disc printing capabilities.

List of CD DVD Printers

  1. Canon PIXMA Inkjet Printers with CD/DVD Printing Feature.
  2. Epson Inkjet Printers with Direct CD/DVD Printing

Click on the links to check price.  I used to recommend Canon, but now there is a wider range.

In the next lesson, I will show you printers that can mass print many discs in a short time.
