AKVIS Stencil Video transforms videos into cartoons with the impressive and dramatic stencil technique. This effect works well with close-up portrait videos and with animal videos. It's better to process videos with good lighting and a uniform background and without lots of small details. You can also achieve incredible results with dark videos. A unique algorithm allows you to create a conceptual video built on contrasts.
In the Pro version, you can make a color cartoon.
