‘Add Text to Video’ Tutorial

Add text to different parts of your video

You can choose where to put your text on the video frame and when it will appear. You can add text that stays for the entire duration of your video and text that only appears temporarily. To move its location, simply select the text and drag and drop it across the video frame. You can put it in the middle, in the corners, or anywhere you like! If you don’t want your text to appear on the next clip or slide, you can trim it by selecting the text on the timeline and dragging its edge toward the left. Drag the edge to the right if you want to extend it. You can also rearrange your texts by dragging and dropping them to any location on the editing pane.

Get your message across

Adding text to your video will help let your viewers know what your video is about. You can add a call to action (CTA) to encourage your viewers to click on a link or a product page. This is great if you are creating marketing videos for social media. Add titles and credits to let people know who were involved in the creation of your video. You can also add captions to your videos to grab people’s attention. They can watch your video without sound and still understand what it’s about. Perfect way to get your message across!

What they say about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen. Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.

The Best & Most Easy to Use Simple Video Editing Software! I had tried tons of other online editors on the market and been disappointed. With VEED I haven't experienced any issues with the videos I create on there. It has everything I need in one place such as the progress bar for my 1-minute clips, auto transcriptions for all my video content, and custom fonts for consistency in my visual branding.
