In order to make whiteboard animation, the vast majority of people use the program Sparkol VideoScribe.
This program is available for:
- PC (Windows)
There is also iOS app available.
Download and use it for free for 7 days (with limitations).
This whiteboard software is not expensive considering the value you’re going to get out of it.
Also, it has a very loose license. For just $35/month you can create as many doodle videos as your time allows! 🙂
- You can sell them. (Many whiteboard animation services charge quite a lot for stuff like this).
- You can create videos for your business, blog or websites for just 35 bucks, which is nothing.
Also if you buy the yearly subscription, the price is $14/month!
I like this program because it’s very simple to use. You don’t need to be able to draw or be a professional animator to use it.
Check out our ultimate whiteboard animation tutorial which will teach you how to use this program. Just drag and drop different images onto the canvas, write some text, and you can create a pretty decent whiteboard explainer video in just a matter of a few hours.
One of the drawbacks is that Videoscribe doesn't have a big standard library. Therefore, you will need to surf the web for svgs (graphic format it uses) or make them yourself if you need custom graphics or something extraordinary.
Also, as I mentioned this software is very simple and unfortunately the only way to create moving objects (aside from moving hands / pencils) is by using the “Morph” option, which doesn’t look good in most cases, and you’re not going to have much control over it.
Maybe in the future the guys from Sparkol will add some form of frames where you will be able to make decent custom animation, but it’s not the case yet.
Overall though I really like this whiteboard video software because it’s time efficient, not expensive, and you can create pretty cool doodle animations using it without any technical skills or equipment.
As a side note, if you don't want to learn how to use this software you can just order custom professional whiteboard animation from our service.
