AKVIS OilPaint Video turns videos into animated cartoons in the oil painting technique. The plugin is compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Elements, as well as with the other video editing programs.
Learn how to use the plugin in Adobe video editing programs:
Hint: For low contrast videos, you can use Curves.
In Adobe After Effects: in the Effects & Presets panel (or in the Effect menu), select AKVIS Plug-ins -> OilPaint Video and drag the effect into the Composition panel.
In Adobe Premiere Pro: select Effects -> Video Effects -> AKVIS Plug-ins -> OilPaint Video and drag it into the Timeline.
In Adobe Premiere Elements: switch to the Expert mode, select Effects -> Video -> AKVIS Plug-ins -> OilPaint Video and drag it into the Timeline.
The drawing effect will be shown in the current frame.
Adjust the effect parameters in the Effect Controls panel.
To reset the parameters to their default values, use the following controls:
In Adobe After Effects: select the effect in the panel, call Animation -> Save Animation Preset… and choose a name and a destination folder. New user effects will appear in the Effects & Presets panel under *Animation Preset -> User presets.
In Adobe Premiere Pro: select the effect, choose Save preset… with a right mouse click, and enter its name. New user effects will appear in the Effects panel under Presets.
In Adobe After Effects: select Composition -> Add to Render Queue. In the rendering window, select the destination folder, set the file name and conversion settings. Click the Render button.
In Adobe Premiere Pro: select the clip in the Project panel and choose File -> Export -> Media. In the Export Settings window, adjust the settings, click the Queue button and complete the export using Adobe Media Encoder.
In Adobe Premiere Elements: click Export & Share on the Premiere Elements toolbar, adjust the format settings, and click Save. Alternatively, you can use File –> Export and Share.
Hint: Use the Posterize Time filter to set a frame rate. The recommended value is 5-12. This will help to avoid flickering strokes.
In the programs, where this feature is not available, you can set the frame rate (Frame Rate, Timebase) 5-10 in the properties of the video file, and use 25 frames when exporting the video.
