Creating a "rough pencil" line

May 19, 2013 11:06 AM



I'd like to find a way to animate in Flash using a rough pencil line. The trailer I've included below is from the film Ernest & Celestine. I know this film was created in Flash, but I can't figure out how they got the lines to look so rough and textured. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    The movie may have been made in Flash but it was probably not drawn in Flash. Flash can import a number of vector and raster image file types, as well as Illustrator and Photoshop files.


    My first four guesses are that the art was created in Illustrator and then imported.
