I'm new to VideoScribe and to the powers of SVGs. I wanted to see quickly between my other work how this tool could enhance my current projects. I was happy to see that the topics and the length of the videos were perfect! Melissa is a great instructor, keeping my attention with a clear voice and easy to understand step by step instructions that are intelligently simplified to help me feel like I can tackle these types of animations. I will definitely recommend Melissa's tutorials to my fellow graphic artists. Thanks!
