As for the development, it’s simple. Just select the image or character as per your storyboard and drag and drop on the stage!

1. Support text, images and sketches movement features

Once we select the image or object on the stage, you need to fix the camera positions to provide the best view for learners for every position. This is very important while developing the video.

2. Upload your images

From the image library (of over 8,000+ custom illustrations), select the images that best support your storyboard, drop and drag them into position. That brings it all to life!

Use your chosen SVG line editor to create a simple outline and create basic strokes – with a pen or pencil tool, Bezier curve tools in Inkscape, or the pencil and pen tools in Adobe Illustrator.

3. Animations

Once you have selected the image or object on the stage, apply this for animations (Line drawing animation, Pen drawing or Paint animations, Swipe animations with hand movement, etc.). Also have fixed camera positions for every object. You can add lots of hand movements or swipe animations for the objects. Just select a hand by gender, ethnicity, or species (monster hands!) along with the drawing tool to bring your animation to life.

You can also create your own hand and add custom objects also, if that’s what you want.

4. Audios

100+ music tracks are yours to choose from in the library. The facility to audio-record a voiceover is available if required. You can also import your own audios.
