My name is Jonny Finch and I’m the Head Trainer here at Sparkol, the creators of VideoScribe. I’ve been working with VideoScribe and teaching people how to get the most out of our software for over 7 years now.

In this course, I’ll show you how you can use third party tools to help your VideoScribe projects stand out and make them even more captivating.

This course is aimed at experienced users who already know the basics and have created a number of videos using VideoScribe. In the first section you’ll learn how to use Audacity to create professional quality audio which you can use in your videos. Then in the second section you’ll learn how to use Adobe Illustrator to create your own customized images which will then draw in VideoScribe.

If you haven’t already, I recommend you complete our 'VideoScribe Fundamentals Training: Creating Animated Videos' course and/or our 'VideoScribe Advanced Training: Mastering Whiteboard Animation' course before starting this one.

This course focuses on how to use specific features within these third party tools to create your own audio and image files that enhance your VideoScribe projects. And you won’t need any existing experience using these tools as I’ll be showing you everything you need to know. Enroll now to get started!
