How Do I Use These Free Animations?
The video files are compatible with all major non-linear editors and compositing apps. Open your favorite editing app and just drag and drop them into your timeline.
In the tutorial above, Mike will walk you through using and editing the clips in Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and DaVinci Resolve. You can also use these elements in After Effects, HitFilm, Avid Media Composer and other video apps.
Adobe Premiere Pro
Drag the folder directly into your Premiere Pro project. This will create a bin automatically and keep all of your animations organized. Double-click on any file to preview the clip.
These animations are black by default. If you can’t see them in your preview monitor, click the settings wrench icon and turn on Transparency Grid. Now you can scrub through or play any clip to see what the animation looks like.
Now you can start layering these elements in your timeline. You can uses any type of background for the bottom layer, like a Color Matte, SuperMOGRT animated background, video clip, or image.
In the Effects Control panel, adjust the size, position, and rotation to adjust the clips. You can also use Blend Modes to play with different looks and effects.
If you want to change the color of the outline, apply a Tint effect to the video element. Then change the “Map Black To” setting to whatever color you want.
Final Cut Pro
Import the files into Final Cut Pro. If you can’t preview the files because they are black, click the Final Cut Pro menu > Preferences > Playback. Go to Player Background and change that to Checkerboard for a grid view or White.
Now drag and drop the elements onto the timeline. You can layer them and in the Inspector adjust their position, scale, and rotation.
To change the color of the elements, under Effects, apply the Colorize effect to your clip. Then adjust the “Map Black To” settings to the color you want. Adjust the intensity to make colors brighter or darker.
Import your hand drawn clips into your project. As of know there is no way to properly preview these pre-keyed elements inside the Media panel, but you can add a white background to your project and drag the clips into the timeline to view them.
In the Video Settings Transform panel you can adjust the zoom, position, and rotation. If you want to change the color of your clip, in the Effects Library, navigate to the Open FX and find Resolve FX Generate. Apply a Color Generator effect to your clip and the adjust the color in your Effects controls.
