How to create a whiteboard video

Post by slice11217 » Wed Jul 19, 2017 6:45 pm

Hey everyone,

My day job is working for a company called Idea Rocket in NYC where we produce explainer video animations. Our bread and butter for the most part has been whiteboard videos and since 2014 I've been the guy who creates and animates the whiteboard effect itself. Well, for those of you that have been wondering how to do it, or for those who already know (but just wants some tips or things that you perhaps hadn't already thought of) we've created a blog post/article (with a video narrated by yours truly) that explains a little bit about how we create the write-on effect along with the hand animation.

Which explainer videos are more popular nowadays, whiteboard or 2d animated?
