First of all thank you in advance for all the inputs and suggestions!
I am looking for a software (or a piece of code, python ideally) that can help me to achieve the following.
- import an already generated image or sketch
- select an animation duration (and maybe also style)
- produce a video long the input duration of the input image being drawn/painted.
I am not looking for a simple fade in, but ideally more like a software that can automatically make the image simpler (like cartoon-ize it, or simplify it in some way) and detect key features, features that are then progressively drawn/painted in an animation of custom duration. It does not have to be a realistic painting animation of the image, but more like something entertaining and eye-catching.
After a search, this is the closest related question I found: 1 Unfortunately, it is quite old and I did not find what I was looking for among the answers. So I was wondering if someone might have a better solution :)
Thank you again!
