How to add text to a video

Using our text adding tool, you can add static or animated text to any kind of video content in all possible formats. If you want to learn how to add text to a video, follow the steps below.

  1. Download video

    Open the text adding tool in a browser on a computer or any other device. Open the file directly on the site or drag and drop the video into the window. If you need to upload multiple video files to connect them, use the "Add" button and select other files.

  2. Add text

    Click "Add Text" in the edit panel. A window for adding text will appear, where you can enter the desired words / line / any other text. After you have added text, you can change the color, size and font of your text in the same text box. There also is the option of animating your text if you need to.

  3. Customize Duration

    You can adjust the duration of your text on the screen throughout the entire video, or just part of the video. To do this, double-click on the text and select the part on the timeline where you want the text to be. If you want to add more text, click on the Add Text button again.

  4. Consider other tools

    If you need to trim, loop, or add music or pictures to your video, you can also find all these tools on the taskbar in our editor.

  5. Customize your video format and Save

    Click on the gear icon to see the export settings. Choose the one you need. The most popular is MP4: it will work well for the Internet and social networks. You can also select MOV for Apple devices. When you have chosen the format you want to export, you can download the video to your device. Then you can save it or share it on social networks.

Put text on a video and make unique content!

With this video editing tool, you can create a video for advertising, a personal blog, nice words for a close family member, a Tiktok hit, or anything else you can imagine. Adding text to video is an indispensable part of the process. Plus, with this tool, videos keep the same resolution, even after editing. Overlaying a text is an essential part of the editing process in any sphere because there are a lot of people who disable the sound on their phones, so the only thing they can do is to see what’s going on on the screen. If they can read the text, it’s a win. Without text, they simply don’t understand the idea, and they won’t watch till the end. This relates to ads, games, blogs, and other areas.
