Whiteboard Animations are a cool and innovative way of communicating different types of messages through hand-drawn style videos.
They are also incredibly effective marketing tools. You can tell stories or showcase your products, services, and ideas in a unique way. With the help of whiteboard animations, you can easily get your message across to your audience or prospects.
Why should you use whiteboard animations?
Ok, now it's the high time for us to jump from the brief intro to the practical part.
What about creating a whiteboard animation video with Renderforest?
To get started, you need to sign up or sign in, if you already have an account.
Then, pick the Whiteboard Animation Toolkit. It's the best solution for creating something deep and detailed. This template includes more than 450 interactive scenes with character animations, various icons, backgrounds, environments, and more. It also has customizable presets, which will make it easier for you to create whiteboard videos for your services, business, startup, company, etc.
Click on "Create Now" to start picking scenes, music, and texts for your video.
Here you have two options: you can either pick a preset or create your own video from scratch using hundreds of scenes designed for various situations. If your video is not specific, you can choose one of our beautifully designed presets by clicking “Load a Preset”. Or, add your script to automatically generate a video.
Choose the one you need for your video and start editing your video scene by scene. You can always alter the scenes, add new ones or delete the ones you don't need.
When it comes to making a video from scratch by combining different scenes, the hardest part can be making up a story. But once you have a story in your mind, everything will become a lot easier. All you need to do is to choose the scenes and the characters you need.
Click on “Add a Scene” button and start creating your unique video. Here you can find a large catalog of categorized scenes with characters, background animations, typography, healthcare and sport, transport, internet and social media, image and video holders, and more.
Add the scenes you need to craft your video. Select the preferred scene, choose “Insert scene”. The selected scenes will appear on your dashboard in your selected order and later on, you can change the order or delete the scenes you don't need.
Click on a text holder to edit the texts.
To add a video, you can use a scene with a video holder. There are several options for adding a video: upload from your device, insert the link of the video, choose an already uploaded video from the "Media Library" or find a stock video from our "Stock Footage" library.
You can also add images by clicking on an image holder. You can upload images from your device, insert an image URL, or choose a previously uploaded image from the "Media Library".
Once you edited the scenes, choose the style of your whiteboard animation video.
Then, choose the main color.
When you finish adding and editing all the scenes of your whiteboard animation, it's time to pick a perfect music track for your video. Go to “Music” to choose a track from our "Music Library" or upload one from your storage.
You can also add a voice over.
Congratulations! Your video is ready. Let's click “Preview” to see what we've got.
If you are satisfied with the result, you can buy the video with higher quality. All the details about our pricing options you can find here.
