When you’re creating YouTube videos, sometimes a pure recording isn’t captivating enough. You can spice it up by adding special animated elements. For example, an animated character could help you stay anonymous, while still providing someone to identify with. You can also present a concept that can’t be recorded in reality, or put visual emphasis on some elements of the video.
If you want to show a story, there’s nothing better than an animation—you can share what you’ve got to say through the look of the characters, their movements, and the sounds they make. CrazyTalk Animator 3 is a perfect program for this task—very simple to use, yet very powerful. If you use it in its Pipeline version, you can even make it an extension of Photoshop!
As a graphic designer, you may be very familiar with working in Adobe Photoshop. But Photoshop, though very powerful, isn’t good for everything—just try to animate something more advanced than a bouncing ball! Luckily, there are other programs you can use to animate a character created directly in Photoshop, so that you can design in the software meant for designing, and animate in the software meant for animating.
