Hello fellow Cows!

Today, I have found myself udderly stumped in the process of planning out some whiteboard animations. I can't, for the life of me, figure out how animators are able to add and alter the lines in their drawings without having their hands right *in* the drawings with their pens *right over top* of their sketches.

I would like to figure out how to have the pictures move without the hand in the picture, while maintaining analog the hand-drawn look (no Strokes).

Here is an example of something that uses this technique:

This video looks to be shot raw and done without Strokes or much, if any, post-processing.

Look, I apologize in advance as I'm sure it's an easy solution, but I am clueless.

Thank you so, so, so much in advance.

It looks to me to just be classic animation: Draw a frame, take a picture, draw another frame, take another picture, etc... except for the parts of the video that are sped-up footage of the hand-in-frame drawing process.

I agree with Todd. It seems to be a Stop Motion Animation. Drawing frames one by one, take a still and then play all together.

Wow, ok. I think it's only obvious this is the case. I'll do my best with it and try to post up my findings when I'm done.
Thank you all so very very much.
Happy holidays!
