How To Add Text To A Video

The combination of video clips, dialogue and music is often enough to tell a great story. But how about introducing a title? Or business details? Or pulling out key points? Add text to a video using VideoStudio to reinforce messages. This also works for when platforms like Facebook autoplay videos in the news feed that are muted. Add text to make sure viewers don’t miss any of your message when they’re on a noisy train or watching without headphones.

1. Install VideoStudio

To install VideoStudio video editing software on your PC, download and run the installation file above. Continue following on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.

2. Identify the location and add a title

Drag the Scrubber to the position you want to add the title on the timeline and click the Title button to the left of the Library thumbnails, this will allow you to add a plain text title to your video. You can type directly in the Preview Window, but the easiest way to get a professional-looking title, is to drag one of the predesigned titles from the Library to the Title track in the Timeline.
