I have had a lot of people comment on and asked me how I created my short animated videos. Well I came across an excellent product called Doodly which I have really enjoyed using for my small business.
What is Doodly?
If you visit Facebook or other social media, you might have come across my Doodly videos. A hand holding a pen sketch different characters on the screen, draws in images, puts them in various parts of the video, and even writes text. These types of videos are doodle videos and are an excellent medium for grabbing the attention of the viewer.
The product is also known as whiteboard animation software. The software combines a Drag and Drop interface that makes it easy to make sketches, the kids love using it 😁. While there are several types of this software available, Doodly stands out because it is easy to use by even beginners. With Doodly, you can create different types of videos quickly and easily.
Doodly sports thousands of images in its library – hence, you just choose the image you like, drop it on the canvas, and the software sketches it for you. Apart from the custom images, you can also upload your images. After sketching, Doodly lets you add sound to it via the free library and then export the video in various video formats.
Features of Doodly
The software comes with 1000’s of character, props and background scenes for you to choose from, if your not satisfied with the built in library then you can upload your own images and have Doodly draw then for you. So basically the library of items is unlimited. Doody are also adding to the library Monthly. Below are some of the included features.
