Save yourself the time and stress of creating animations on your own! Add some one-of-a-kind flair to your video projects by using our new Scribble FX pack. This video effects pack includes over 300 hand drawn animations, featuring doodles, letters, video transitions, shapes, and a lot more. These assets are perfect for all kinds of projects, including music videos, short films, or whatever else you’re dying to create. Learn how to use these scribble animation video effects in Premiere Pro now to get started!

How to Use our Scribble Animation Video Effects in Premiere Pro

First, purchase and download the Easy Scribble Animation Effects from the CinePacks store (make sure to download them one at a time) and unzip the files (we like to use 7zip for this). There are three folders containing multiple animated video effects that you’ll receive when you get this pack; go ahead and drag them straight into Adobe Premiere Pro. (You might receive an error message since there are PDFs included in this pack - one contains a link to this tutorial and the other is a 15% off coupon you can use towards other packs on our site!)

Note: This is an Adobe Premiere Pro tutorial but these video effects are able to be used in multiple editing programs, like Final Cut Pro, Sony Vegas, and DaVinci Resolve. Get in touch if you have any questions about compatibility.

Once everything is imported, start browsing through the three folders of scribble animation video effects in Adobe Premiere Pro. The first folder contains objects; these are transparent ProRes 444 files that are alpha so you can easily drag and drop them over your footage in your timeline (right click and select Scale to Frame Size if necessary). 

The Scribble Animation Effects pack also contains animated frames. Not only do they look cool but they’re also easily loopable - just make a cut in the middle of the clip, select the new clip, hold down Alt, then drag to duplicate the clip. Do this as many times as you need to achieve the desired length of the animated clip. (If you prefer fewer clips in your timeline, you can select them all, right click, and select “Nest” to group them all into one clip.)

CinePacks also included a variety of accents and shapes in this animated Premiere Pro effects pack. You can customize these animated video effects however you’d like by changing the size, position, color, and movement; you can also apply the Horizontal or Vertical Flip effect (under Video Effects → Transform) wherever needed. Use the Rate Stretch tool to speed up or slow down a certain animation. 

Another way to further transform your footage is by using the Mask tool to crop your footage inside a particular frame or shape.

You can also experiment with the animated video transitions in Premiere Pro. Just drag and drop any of the video transitions between your two clips to seamlessly move from one clip to the next.

Also included in this incredible video effects pack is letters so you can spell out anything you want, like a title or name. Once you have everything spelled out, select all the clips, right click, and select “Nest” to group them all into one clip. You can then hit Ctrl + R to use the Rate Stretch tool to adjust the speed of the animation as desired. Feel free to further experiment with this feature by changing the scale and/or using keyframes to animate your lettering. (Note: we also included light versions of these letters that aren’t as bold/heavy.)

Here’s an example of something awesome you can create to serve as a step-by-step guide for using these animated video effects in Premiere Pro. Drag one of the scribble effects into your timeline above your footage (we chose the two X’s). In this shot, we want the X’s to remain above the subject’s eyes, so we scale it down and track the movement using keyframes. 

We also repeated the same process with the angel wing’s object, using the Position, Scale, and Rotation to track its movements and keep the object in line with the moving subject. (Note: Locking your video layer will help by preventing you from accidentally editing your video instead of the video animation above it.)

Feel free to add a mask when desired (we used one here to make the wings appear like they are behind the subject’s body). Again, use the keyframes to move the mask along with the subject.

Make these scribble effects your own! Adjust the size, change the colors, add a glow, or layer them on top of each other to create a totally unique look for your video project. Additionally, we have a sample pack of these scribble animation video effects that you can download for free!
