1) Why make a whiteboard video?
Whiteboard videos like this (direct link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNwK8ZIcwiE) allow you to tell a story with visuals
that can hone in on exactly what you’d like to emphasize. Plus, you can make them
yourself without too much money or work.
Although the software I used was free to download, it costs $29/month to export the
videos to a usable format. Thus, to export your one video, it will cost $29. Furthermore,
making a high quality video with voiceover requires a decent amount of editing and work.
3) Download software
The software I used was called Videoscribe, and I definitely recommend it. It is free to
download but costs money to export your videos.
4) Start a new project
5) Add an image or text to your project
6) Select an SVG image
You may select an image either from Videoscribe’s library or import any Scalable Vector
Graphics (SVG). To find SVGs, I recommend Google Images or TheNounProject.
7) Edit the image
You can resize, rotate, and otherwise edit the image. It’s important to notice the time
element for each picture. This is how long it takes to draw that element.
8) Continue adding images and and text
Keep adding images and text to your video. Make sure you watch your video as you
create to see if the timings make sense and the relative sizing of objects makes sense.
Videoscribe handles transitions, but you can customize them if you’d like.
Once you have completed your video complete, click to add voiceover.
10) Export your video
