Using Painting Creator

1.To begin with, select a clip from the Media Library.

2.Drag and drop the clip onto the main video track.

3.Next, go to the Tools menu and select Painting Creator.



4.On the main canvas area, you will see the clip you selected. You can adjust the opacity of the clip by dragging the background image transparency setting left or right.



5.Above the canvas, you will find the Brush panel that includes different brushes you can use to create your drawing. On the left-hand side, you can use the Brush Thickness setting to adjust the size of a brush. Choose the Paintbrush and then adjust the thickness size by dragging the buttons around.



6.Start capturing by clicking on the Start Recording button. Next, draw anything you wish to appear on the video.



7.Change the color of your paintbrush using the Color Picker tool (or the Eye Dropper tool) and selecting a color from the Color Palette.



8.To erase a drawing, select the Erase button and adjust the eraser size accordingly.



9.Once the drawing is finished, click the Stop recording button. Your drawing will be added to the Painting Library.



10.Click on OK to start the rendering, which can take a couple of seconds.

11.The rendered drawing clip will appear in the Media Library.

12.Right-click on the drawing clip and select Insert to > Overlay Track # 1. This will place the drawing clip below the main video track.

13.Adjust the length of the exposure of the drawing clip by pressing the Shift key on your keyboard while dragging the right-edge of the drawing clip. Match its duration with the video clip on the main video track.
