Hi,
I am doing a whiteboard animation for youtube.
I am using Videoscribe.
But I am having problems with making it look good. I can not find consistency in the graphic illustrations,
that is, the pictures I choose have different styles, even when I use Videoscribe's own stock images.
I import some pictures from royalty free sources, of which I cartoonize some using a free online service.

My problem is that I end up having real images with different styles mixed with cartoon images also with different styles.
It is like a potpourri where nothing is really consistent. I do not know anything about video making but it looks unprofessionally and deters from the message being conveyed.
I guess I could hire someone to draw the sketches, but it feels like I am missing something?
How does MJ makes his youtube videos? :)

Bonus question: if you take a picture and cartoonize it, will it loose its royalty and you can use it as you want?

Try Doodly or Toonly.

They are two services for making animated videos quickly and easily.

I don't know if these are the tools MJ uses for his videos, but from a quick view the style looks pretty similar.

Thanks!
I did look at Doodly and other softwares, they are more expensive but in the end maybe worth it.
Choosing a different software could be the answer in fact.

I really like the software he's using...so if anyone knows?
It anyone has some specific suggestion on a good software, just name drop i here :)

Some time ago they both had an offer where you only pay once and use them for life. I don't know if it's still valid or if it was an offer for the European market only, but it might be worth a search. ;)
