As I said in the last movie, keyframes are essential, and we're going to do some more keyframes now, but we're going to do them to a video effect. So I've got some footage here, and I'll just press the play button. And I think this would be really cool in my video if I had more like a line drawing or even a cartoony kind of thing. I am going to do line drawing. So with the clip selected, I'm going to go into Edit and then Effects, and in the Effects, instead of going through all of these, I'm just going to go in here, search bar, and type in line, and that's going to bring up my Line Drawing effect and we'll just drag that on. And as you see, it's looks pretty cool, like a blueprint almost or something really cool. So I want to change colors.
So I am going to select it. I am going to go into Edit Effects and you see it down here, Line Drawing. So I want that window that shows me the keyframes. I am going to click on it and now I can see the window here. I like to do that. That's my workflow, because I want this all to be close by when I'm working. I don't want to go back down tp the Timeline. I want to be right here. So now with my line drawing selected, I am going to click the Toggle animation. This gives me some options. Do I want the paper to be a certain color, the ink to be a certain color, and I can choose to change the density as well.
So now let's go from here, and I am just going to go into the middle more or less. And I want the ink to stay black, but now as it goes out, I want 9it to change to a different color. I want to choose like a blue. Click on this color icon within the ink and it brings up my color picker, and I am going to look around for a nice blue, something like that. Click OK. So, now as I play this, and we'll press the play button, it goes from that and then it's going to hold for a little bit, and now it's going to turn blue.
And now it's blue. So I've animated the color going from black to blue. You can do the same thing for the paper. So I am going to go into the middle here, keyframe the paper, go ahead a little bit. I am going to change the paper now. Because it's blue, we'll do something kind of fun like a weird red here. And let's go back to 1, and we'll press play, so I'm going from that color to red, and there is the blue.
Now, we have a lot of effects here. And let's just go back into this Effects panel. There is so many effects here. Every one of them can be animated, so I'll go in there and start playing with the different things that you can do, like here's noise, so we can add some crazy noise to this. Let's drag that on, and now I've got some noise. And I am going to edit my effects again and go down to noise, toggle my noise animation and I've got keyframes there now. And at the beginning I'm going to lower the amount of noise. As you see, it plays on, it gets a lot noisier, and then it's really noisy.
So go in there, be creative, and try out the different effects.
