Add informative value or engaging hooks to your videos by incorporating text elements into them. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to do it:

  1. Accessing Text Titles: Begin by navigating to the “Text” option located in the left panel of the workspace.

2. Adding Text: When you click it, various text presets open up. Drag and drop a preferred text preset from the available options onto your video canvas. Alternatively, you can click the “+” symbol to add the text box over your video.

3. Editing Text: Click on the added text to open the text edit panel. Here you can modify various text attributes:

    1. Text Content: Edit and personalize the text according to your project’s narrative.
    2. Font Selection: Choose from diverse fonts or apply a specific font style that aligns with your video’s theme.
    3. Text Color: Enhance visual appeal by selecting the desired text color.
    4. Formatting: Apply text enhancements such as bold, italics, underline, and color variations.
    5. Alignment: Adjust vertical and horizontal alignment to achieve the perfect placement.
    6. Visual Enhancements: Experiment with text outline, shadow effects, and background color.
    7. Coordinates: Adjust the placement of the text within the canvas.
    8. Scale: Resize the text to emphasize key points.
    9. Block Position: Fine-tune the position of the text block.
    10. You can also adjust the text’s placement and size by directly dragging it using your mouse cursor.

4. Animation Effects: If you have added a “Free Text,” you can enhance the text’s impact by adding animation effects. Choose from in, out, or both animations to captivate your audience.
