Adding Text to Video

It's not a thing about "text to a movie", but with handy text tools, you can turn your videos into self-expressive movies.

1. Import and add a video to the Timeline

Before adding a video to the Timeline, you need to import videos to the supplied User's Album. This way, all your editing won't apply to the original videos. Just keep them safe. To add titles, drag and drop a video from User's Album to Timeline first.

2. Apply a text template and change text

Now switch to Text tab, 20+ text templates will appear on the left panel. Drag and drop any text template to the Timeline, and you will see a text thumbnail with a leading letter "T". Double click the text thumbnail will open the text editor panel, where you can type in your text, and then select the font, color, animation, etc. Preset styles are also included. Click "Return" to go back to the primary window.

Note: When you drag and drop a text template to an existing one, the original will be automatically split and the new one will insert to the current position.By the way, after you drag and drop the text template to the timeline, you can review the effect in the preview windows.

3. Adjust text in a video

On the Timeline, you can move the added title to any position and let it display at specified time. Also drag the end of text thumbnail to extend its duration.

To delete a video title, select it and click the Delete button above Timeline or simply press Delete key on the keyboard,or right click to choose "Delete".

Adding Intro/Credit to Video

Intro/Credit is more like a combination of titles and photo. Actually, you can add it anywhere on Video Track of Timeline. They help you create chapters and good-looking intro, credit and cast.

1. Drag and drop an Intro/Credit template

Similar to adding titles, you can simply drag and drop a template in Intro/Credit tab to Video Track on Timeline. If you drop it on an existing video/photo, the original video/photo will be split and the Intro/Credit will insert at the specified position.

2. Change text and make settings

Now double click the text or photo to editing Intro/Credit. For the Intro/Credit titles, you can change text, font, color, animation, etc. For the photo, the built-in editing tools including Rotate, Crop, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Hue, and Motion.

On the Timeline, move text/photo and extend their duration as described above.

Exporting Video with Titles

After finishing adding text to video, click "Create" tab and you get four ways to output your video: Device, Format, YouTube and DVD. For device and format, all popular devices and formats are supported (If you can't find the suitable device, you can try to save with suitable formats which can support your device). Besides, it's convenient to directly upload a video with text to YouTube, or burn to DVD without third-party DVD burning tools required.

I want to use the same Credit Page and Text for all my videos. Is there a way to save the credit page so I don't have to create a new one for every video. Thank you.

Hi I have the same problem can you help?
Liza_Brown
Thanks for your reply! Please understand that our software is aiming for beginners, therefore if your video file is big or you need advanced editing tools like Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere, Wondershare Video Editor may be not suitable for you. We are still trying to improve the stability. Did you update to the latest 5.0.0 version? Which is much better than previous. There is some issues for adding texts to videos, we are aware of that and would update in next big update, which would provide more customization with better user interaction. We always welcome those users like you who can provide suggestions and help us to make Wondershare Video Editor better. Any questions, you can find me on Facebook, talk with me online. Sincerely, Liza.

This would be my favorite video editing program but...., it is so full of bugs and with so few user controls. The timing of the videos is different in the exported file than they were during the editing. Also it will freeze very frequently and it never unfreezes, I have waited hours on several occasions hoping not to lose my unsaved changes but to no avail. Also making text on the video is horrible, first you write it, then hit return and seek the invisible writing and move it because it won't center itself, then go back and see if it is where it should be, over and over again for every time you want to add some text. there is no way to overlap audio files that I have found either. I considered upgrading but I have very little confidence that paying more will really fix this, BUT if it would I would be willing.

Sorry to hear that. If you still need assistance, go to our support center at http://support.wondershare.com and they will help out.

Yeah, That didn't work. I want to return this software. I can´t find any help online for this issue.
Liza_Brown
Got it. Here comes the solution: 1. Drag the slider to Max. 2. Scroll the timeline and cut off the blank timeline after 15 minutes.
disqus_LeJ520rNtN
Thanks for the answer, but I was referring to the blank timeline after my video footage. I made a video that is actually 15 minutes, but somehow the empty space after my footage made the project 40 minutes long, instead of the original 15.
Liza_Brown
The extra timeline is for the overlay video. If you don't want any overlay video, just keep it blank.

How do you get rid of the extra timeline that does not contain any footage
