How can I use my own drawings in videoscribe?

Asked at Sun, 28 Jul 2013 14:00:42 GMT by Enensa Aunghk


I need to be able to take SVGs I've converted from my own custom made jpeg images, and upload them into videoscribe so that they draw in a clear and clean fashion. 

I've tried using images from powerpoint etc. at jpegs, and even as SVGs, but videoscribe doesn't draw them in neat lines. There is a lot of grainy detail in the drawing and the strokes that I am trying to remove. 


What is the best way to do this: 


1) with photoshop?


2)without photoshop? 


  • Hi Enensa, 2 - without Photoshop.

    The best way to get good results inside VideoScribe in order for the hand to draw your images is to open your images in a Vector graphics programme like Adobe Illustrator, Serif drawplus, Inkscape, iDraw etc. You need to draw paths using the pen or pencil tool to define the outline of your images, then export as .SVG (scalable Vector Graphic).
