Video creators are sure picking up on the effectiveness of text on video. It seems like you’ve learned this quicker than I did . To be honest visuals have always had my attention much more than text, which naturally drew me to video creation. Text on videos in the beginning felt like there were only a handful of ways to use it – a title, caption and so. I was just ignorant though. The more I began to use text, the more I understood how it can actually add to the creative element of a video.
Much of my learning came from observing the template designs Typito had to offer and the toggle options to edit the text. With this it took a bit of playing around with text and a keen sense of what looked good with the video background.
One of the simplest and most basic tips I learned was to add a shadow effect to the text. This may seem simple but works well for almost any kind of video.
Something I enjoy more is playing around with colour. There are a couple of ways to do this and I’ve seen popular channels do the same. The two ways I go about this are:
So these are a few of my tips which I hope help you with your videos! If you’ve learned any other interesting ways to use text I’d love to hear from you
