I put this together in response to a forum question asked today about generating this kind of simple outline animation in Studio Artist. There are 3 different simple black and white sketch examples. These were all generated automatically.
The source video is the Colbert green screen challenge footage, so Colbert is dancing around in front of a green screen. I did a real rough color key using Region Selection to generate a new source movie that has Colbert dancing on a flat white background.
For the first example, i selected the white background, inverted the selection to get Colbert selected, and then converted that into a bezier path outline of the selection. I then painted that with a pencil preset in the paint synthesizer.
The other 3 examples show off the new version 4 Sketch effect with 2 different settings. Sketch can create a wide range of different sketching effects depending on how you setup it's adjustable parameters.
