Add text and subtitle

Text can be divided into the opener, the end, the credit, the subtitle, the title, the caption, the watermark and the custom.

  • The opener and the end can act as the beginning and the end of the video.

  • The caption is descriptive text with animated effects.

  • The credit can also be placed at the beginning and the end of the video in order to show the division of labour among panel members and to express gratitude to members.

  • The watermark is used to identify the authenticity of the video and protect copyright.

Title and the subtitle are decent choices when you would like to add the name of the video, the dubbing text, the subhead and so on.
