I have downloaded an android app called Paper Camera that provides real time camera filters such as a variety of 'sketch' and cartoony feels. I find especially interesting their filters 'Contour', which is pretty much B&W contour lines, and 'Sketch Up' which looks like a rough pencil drawing.

What kind of software and what filters could I use to apply similar effects to an already recorded video file?

  • I'm not sure how that second question is related, other than also being about an Android tablet. If it isn't, it'd fit better as a second question, so that we aren't doubling up on questions and answers. Dec 11, 2011 at 18:00
  • Yeah I was thinking about doing just that. Thanks! avp.stackexchange.com/questions/2791/… Dec 11, 2011 at 18:44

Adobe Premiere should do exactly what you want - it has a ton of effects plugins.

As to your second question, any screen grabber video software should let you do this - you play the video and have your wacom sketch overlay running, and just use the screen grabber software to make a video of everything displayed on the screen.

  • I made a separate question for the second inquiry. Dec 11, 2011 at 18:44
  • Would Adobe Premiere Elements also offer me such plugins? Dec 11, 2011 at 18:50
  • I haven't tried Elements, but a quick google comes up with some plugins which appear to do 'sketch' type effects.
