Tween the drawing process and change multiple keyframes at once [Need help]

Hello,

 

I try to create explanation videos from scratch. Thus, I mainly draw lines and create keyframes that it looks like I would be in the process of drawing. For straight lines and different shades, I use the line tool and form tween. I have multiple questions to speed up the process.

 

1) Is there a way to film the drawing process and convert it into a tween? It appears very tideous to draw letters and shapes over multiple keyframes and add/delete keyframes to meet the flow of the video without dropping frames per second.

2) How can I make a change in multiple keyframes at once? I sometimes run into the problem that I drew a line accidently and I notice it about 100 of keyframes later. If there is something missing, you can cover it with another layer but deleting appears to be an issue to be dealt with in every keyframe seperate.

3) Is there a way to determine the path of transformation of form tween? I tried to draw mathematical functions with form tween. Form tween does allow me to change the "drawing time" afterwards. But it curve does not propagate along the function. It rather looks for a point-to-point way which does not look organic. This question would be solved if there is a solution for 1).

 

Thanks for the help in advance.

For now, I don't use no screen capture. I draw a line and create another keyframe, repeat.

 

Is there a way to use screen capture or pencil motion capture in animate? For much clearer drawing, I zoom in and out, use assisting line, the grid and so on for more precision on the drawing. I would run into a problem if I use screen capture of another programm.

After watching a few tutorials of adobe captivate, I don't see how it solves my problem. It is still screen capture of all drawing assistances which should not be visible in the final result. Anyway, the monthly price is off the table for my special niche.

If others run into the same problem. I have found out some by-pass strategies.

 

1. Hide Letters with a shape and tween the shape that covers your letters to simulate a drawing effect.

 

2. Use only transformation for form tween and the asset warp tool for shape transformations. Structures will break apart even in complex regular shapes with all possible shape hints placed. 

 

3. You can screen capture your progress with geforce-experience. Since it is filmed, what you can see, any drawing assistance like a grid, assisting lines, an underlying photo/video, zoom in/out will all be captured. This results in larger after production to crop, move, scale and cut. So you rather use only your drawing abilities without assistance and limit the process to reverse drawing failures in the process and cut them out afterwards. This does not apply well to my consistency and drawing competence yet.
