...or is it?
"Chinese" character do not seem to be currently supported. Does a plugin exist?
Chinese characters are not currently supported in VideoScribe but you can create SVG images of your text and import that into VideoScribe.
The best way is to create the text in Inkscape. Using the text tool in Inkscape, type or paste the text into a text box.
Then export the text as a bitmap, by selecting File -> Export Bitmap (may be .jpg in newer versions of Inkscape)
I use the following settings when exporting 145 dpi (dots per inch) - the higher the DPI the better the image quality.
Delete the text you have just put into Inkscape and import the Bitmap/JPG image back into Inkscape, that you just exported by selecting File -> Import... and select Embed.
When you have the image on the canvas use the Pencil tool to roughly trace over the letters of the text in the same way you would if you were writing it.
Then select all the Pencil strokes that you just created and select Path -> Simplify from the menu.
Once you have done this, with the paths still selected, double click on the word 'Different' next to Fill:
And set the fill to No paint
Double click on the word Different next to 'Stroke' and increase the stroke width value so the text image is covered.
Then set the stroke paint to have an Alpha value of zero so it is invisible.
Save the SVG and import into VideoScribe.
Thank you for your answer. However it slows down the production speed, so I will pass. Explee, another software ( which I do not have any business connexion with btw) supports mandarin character with most basic transition effects. It would be a nice feature to add to Videoscribe.
It will not work, the characters must be within the supported character sets available in VideoScribe. Currently, the alphabets supported in VideoScribe are Latin, Greek, Armenian, Hebrew, Cyrillic. Write with non-Western text characters
