Animated Explainer Videos are incredibly helpful in putting across your message in a comprehensible way. The actual challenge, however, lies in ensuring the level of your Explainer Video is just perfect. Here are just four insightful tips that could stop you from receiving a low quality Animated Explainer Video produced.
- Finalize your script before the animation process starts
In the video Production process, animation is done on the basis of this script. When the animation is finished and the last video produced, shifting the script will only deteriorate the movie quality. This is because, correspondingly, animation could also need to be changed, requiring that part to be produced from the scratch. The modified part may then appear as a patch and break the flow of the movie, thereby decreasing its overall quality. Therefore, it is necessary to finalize the script before giving it for animation.
- Establish the minutest of details, right at the start
It is advised that Even the minutest of details, such as color specifications, emblem details where and when to set in the movie etc., are given right at the start of the production procedure. Any redoing / revision is strictly ill-advised, as the new specifications might not fit-in too, and can in fact, reduce the visual appeal of this movie.
- Last Voiceover v/s Dummy Voiceover
Voiceovers form the Base of Explainer Videos. For a video to appear professional, perfect synchronization between the voiceover and the animation is crucial. At times, throughout the video production process, toonly review is done first on the basis of a dummy voiceover that is subsequently replaced by the final voiceover. This is a No-No. The final voiceover could have some variations from the dummy voiceover, concerning the rate of voiceover narration, emphasis made on specific words, pause placements etc. This creates a mismatch between the cartoon and the voiceover, thus endangering the movie quality. A minutely desynchronized video can confuse the viewers and make them feel annoyed by the very low quality. Thus, it is much better to animate the video depending on the last voiceover rather than on a dummy voiceover.
- Finalize step-by-step
Typically, the video Production process involves these steps in the specified sequential order:
- Storyboard Creation
- Voiceover Recording
Since the video is built gradually, depending on the output of the preceding measure, therefore, going back to a previous step through the manufacturing process ought to be avoided. Since it is very important to get the best synchronization between the script voiceover and the cartoon, shifting anything in these components, frequently disrupts the flow of the material, which makes it ambiguous.
