Premiere Pro Explainer Video Animation -Tutorial For Beginners [Whiteboard Template]

Do you want to create a whiteboard animation but don’t have the tools to do so? Worry no more, because we are offering a whiteboard explainer template that comes with over 400 characters, various animations, effects, and transition. But it doesn’t end there. In this article, we will also provide a quick step-by-step guide on how to utilize the said template using Adobe Premiere Pro.

Before we start, click here to download the Whiteboard Explainer Video Animation Template.

  • Once you have downloaded the template, first drag and drop the audio / voiceover file into the Media Browser. Next, drag and drop the file into the timeline. Next, zoom into the timeline so you can see the parts where the audio pauses.
  • After that, drag all the characters from the template folder into the Media Browser, including the White Background.
  • Next, drag the White Background into the timeline and make sure it covers the entire duration of the video animation.
  • After that, you need to place all the needed characters based on what the audio is stating. Most of the time, you need to use different character after each pause.
  • To add a title, use the shortcut key “T”. To edit the title, select the text you want to edit then go to Effect Controls and click the dropdown arrow beside the Text parameter.
  • Now you can change its font style, font color, and font size.
  • IMPORTANT REMINDER: Be sure to add only small amount of texts. Whiteboard animations typically do not need plenty of words since viewers only focus on the animation itself and do not have enough time to read everything one-by-one. Also make sure to position each text that you add based on each pause.
  • Since this is a whiteboard animation, we want to add the different hand effects. To do this, find the Dragger Hand and Drawer Hand clips and drag it into the timeline. For best results, be sure to use the hand effects to cover the element you want to animate.

    There you have it! With these simple steps, you can now create your own whiteboard explainer video animation.
