There are many ways to go about creating an animated cartoon. Luckily the Adobe Creative Cloud has all the tools you need to create a stellar production. In Adobe CC Cartoon Production you will be taken step by step through the process of creating an animated cartoon. We will first start by mapping out a storyboard and creating our characters and scenes. Next, we will animate the entire production as seen in the storyboard. Finally, we will use Premiere to edit and add polish to our animated masterpiece.
