In this AE Tutorial learn how to do the animated drawing music video effect in Adobe After Effects CC 2017. Also known as the Hand Drawn music video effect, or scribble fx. You’ve seen this effect in a few music videos throughout the years and it is fairly simple. It is just a matter of patience as it is a frame by frame visual effects editing technique.
This is similar to what cartoon animators go through when creating a cartoon. It can be a long process, where an Animator has to color out each and every “cell” (in our case “frame”). Back in the good ol’ days this was a long and complex process but now with advanced programs like Adobe Flash and high tech computers, animators have more of an assist. Anyway enough with the rant, check out the tutorial and let us know if we can help you out with anything else.

QUICK TUTORIAL NOTES:
1) Use Keyboard shortcuts to help animate faster:
a. Use the mouse’s scrolling button to zoom in & out. Or use the “+” & “-“
b. “H” – The Hand Tool to move around the video
c. “Page Up” and “Page Down” to move frame by frame
d. “Control + D” to duplicate your layer.
2) Once you create your finished brush strokes, duplicate the layer. Make the paint layer separate from your original clip. That way you can add effects to the paint layer and your original clip separately.
3) Be Creative! In the music video examples, they chose to go Black & White. Try out different effects to create something different. Maybe a gradient brush or use the “Track Matte” feature to use an image/video for a brush stroke.
