This can vary as it depends on the level of detail and points that the dialogue is making, but is usually a good starting point. So in it’s truest form and how it was originally intended, a traditional whiteboard video is quite simply a hand drawing black outlines to create scenes, in-time with a voice over. Whilst the end results may well look like a camera has been used to film someone actually drawing a scene ‘live’ this in reality is far from the truth. Like 90% of the whiteboard videos produced commercially, software is used to give the ‘illusion’ of a real hand drawing.
The process is actually slightly more complex than the end results suggest, but by working digitally it allows for greater accuracy, continuity and a faster production process. The hand that you see moving around the screen is actually two photographs in slightly different positions holding a pen.
