1. Choose an animation style

The first thing to decide on is the animation style for your presentation or video. As an animation platform, we know how difficult it can be to choose an animation style. Do you go with the fun Doodle Marker Style? Or perhaps the more formal Infographic style?

Decisions. Decisions.

Every animation style has their unique qualities. The style you choose depends on the nature of your video and the way you want to present. On Moovly, you have the choice of the following animated libraries:

The Doodle Marker animation Library

Moovly’s Doodle Marker graphic style is a free animation library, popular amongst many businesses looking to create an animated explainer video.
The Infographic style animation Library

The Infographic style is another one of Moovly’s free animation libraries, perfect to help explain complex topics and ideas in a more formal manner.

The Colorful Cartoon-Style animation Library

Colourful. Bright. Friendly and incredibly fun. Moovly’s Colorful Cartoon-style animation library is a favorite and can be accessed when you upgrade to a Pro or Plus license.

Paper Cut-out style animation Library

Another 2D animation library available for users with a Moovly Pro or Plus license is the Paper Cut-out style animation library. The crafty video animation style uses flat characters, props, and backgrounds cut from a material such as paper and card.

Boost animation library

Our latest 2D animation library is Boost, perfect for businesses looking to announce, promote and make a splash with their animated video.

The Clean Graphic Style Library

With over 100 different elements, The Clean Graphic Library is ideal for professional presentations and works great with the Boost Library to give emphasis to your mess.

One important tip to remember, try to stick with one style throughout your video. Your finished video will end up looking great if a consistent style is kept.

2. Attach music to your video

Music is fun, it’s creative and can have a dramatic effect on your video. Having music (or even sounds) in your video can help put a smile on your teacher’s face.

Our top tip for choosing the right song is to try set the mood. How do you want your teacher and schoolmates to feel after watching your animated video? Happy? Sad? There are tons of royalty free music tracks available out there. Use them to your advantage.

3. Use animated assets

It’s time to really WOW your teacher. You need to make use of great and exciting animations.

Here is how to access loads of pre-made animated assets:

From objects to people, you will surely find an asset that you need in the Moovly Library! All you need to do is then drag and drop any object from the Moovly Library to the Stage. Just like we mentioned earlier, try to stick with one style of animations. Whether they are part of the Infographic Style Library or Doodle Marker Style Library, using a consistent style will help give a more professional look.

Now that you have some objects, it’s time to bring your animations to life. In your Timeline, add animated effects and make each object pop, wedge, wipe, fly or flip. It’s that easy!

5. Animate your text

We know that animations don’t tend to use a lot of text, but in case you want to add some short phrases or words, why not animate your text?

Having beautiful animated text can really hook your classmate’s attention and impress your teacher.

Here’s how to create animated text using Moovly:

Start by writing a word, phrase or sentence on your Moov. Make sure to change the font, size, and color to blend in with the rest of your video. Then, under your Timeline, select your text box and choose animations. From fading into flying in, choose an animation that works best and viola!
