Making text and animations look hand drawn is really easy. You don’t have to be an artist to make impressive animations. I’m going to show you three techniques to get impressive hand drawn or jittery type animations. I’ll do this in:

1. Photoshop
2. AE
3. FCPX – although it’s easy to do in Premiere too.

Here is my Draw My Life video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPk32h8O5Fg

Animations in the past were created with anywhere from 8 to 12 drawn animations per second. That means that if you’re rending out a 24 frame per second movie, then each drawing is on screen for 2 or 3 frames. In today’s digital world we can simulate that effect in three different ways.

1. Create 3 different images in photoshop and cycle them so that they are on screen for roughly .2 of a second. At 24fps, I find that each image should stay on for 5 frames.

2. Create one image and use Effects-Turbulent Displace in AE to simulate the hand drawn effect

3. Screen capture your hand drawing and add a type sketch filter in your editing program (such as in FCPX)

I’ll show you all three as we go through this tutorial.
