The backgrounds set the ambiance of any presentation and therefore they are significant. While the static images or solid backgrounds give a stubborn appearance, small motion clips running in loop make your animations dynamic and catchy.
Being a robust web tool, Doratoon enables you to set your custom backgrounds for the videos. You can learn how to add images, solid colors, or motion clips as background by following the instructions given below:
How to Use Uploaded Photo as Background
Step 1: Upload a Photo
After starting a new Doratoon project, click Background from the bar on the left, click Upload from the top of the Scene pane at the center, and click Image from the list that appears. Next, locate and upload your custom photo to Doratoon. You can notice that the image is automatically added to the Uploaded section of the Mine category. Note that an instance of the image is placed on the scene page as well. To get rid of this copy, you can click the Delete icon from the floating toolbox above the photo.
Step 2: Set the Uploaded Photo as Background
Select Mine from the bar on the left, ensure that the Uploaded tab is selected in the center pane, and that the Material section is expanded. Hover the mouse over the image you uploaded in the previous step, and click Set it as background from the bottom-left corner of the image preview box that comes up next.
Step 3: Format/Customize the Background
Use the options present under the Background settings section in the right pane to change the transparency level, zoom the background, and add other filters to it as needed. You can even click Delete from the right pane to get rid of the background image altogether.
How to Use Uploaded Video as Background
Step 1: Upload a Video
Select Background from the bar on the left as explained earlier, click Upload, but this time select Video from the list that appears. Now, locate and upload a video clip that you want to use as background in Doratoon. Next, as suggested earlier, remove the automatically added instance of the video from the scene page by clicking the Delete icon from the floating toolbox.
Step 2: Set the Uploaded Video as Background
Select Mine from the left bar, expand the Video(Less than 60s) category from the Mine pane at the center, hover the mouse over the video you uploaded in the previous step, and click Set it as background from the bottom-left corner of the preview box that appears.
Step 3: Define the Video Clip Duration
Click Clipping Length from the Background settings pane on the right, and use the trimming handles on the Adjust Length box to set the duration of the background clip.
Step 4: Format/Customize the Background
Use the other options and tools in the right pane to adjust the zoom level, brightness, and transparency percentage to customize the background clip as needed. You can even click the Delete button from the right pane to get rid of the clip altogether.
How to Set a Solid Color as Background
Step 1: Choose a Solid Color for Background
Go to Background from the bar on the left, and from the top of the Scene pane at the center, click the BG color tab. From the available palette, click a solid color to set it as the background.
Step 2: Format/Customize the Solid Background Color
Use the Opacity slider from the Background settings pane on the right to set the transparency level of the background color. As before, you can click the Delete button to remove the solid background color.
