Tutorial: AKVIS Sketch Video

Video to Animated Cartoon


AKVIS Sketch Video turns videos into animated cartoons. To work with the plugin you need a video editor - Adobe Premiere or Adobe After Effects.

Attention! Use the Posterize Time filter to set a frame rate. The recommended value for this parameter is 12.

  • Step 1. In the editor open a project as a composition. Use Curves for low contrast images.

  • Step 2. Apply the Sketch Video effect.

    The plugin offers two video to cartoon conversion styles: Classic and Artistic; implemented as two lines in the menu: Sketch Video Сlassic and Sketch Video Artistic.

    In Adobe After Effects, select the Effects & Presets panel (or the Effects menu), then AKVIS Plug-ins -> Sketch Video Сlassic or Sketch Video Artistic and drag into the Composition panel.

    In Adobe Premiere: select Effects -> Video Effects -> AKVIS Plug-ins -> Sketch Video Сlassic or Sketch Video Artistic and drag into the Timeline.

    The result will be shown in the current frame.
