Tips for adding animated text to your videos
Less is moreWhen adding animated text to your videos, the golden rule is not to overwhelm your viewers with text. Instead, use it as a complementary instrument and only post the essential information.
Stick to two fontsDo you want to use a fancy font for your text on video? While sophisticated fonts might look great in print, they might be difficult to read in a video. It’s a good idea to stick to just two simpler fonts that your audience will be able to read quickly enough.
Give your readers enough time to read the textMake sure your animated text stays on the screen long enough for your audience to grasp it. Don’t move on to the next scene too fast.
Don’t use too many different text animation stylesWhile it is possible to use 24 different text animations in Wave.video, it’s best to stick to just one or two text animation styles for one video. Otherwise, your audience might feel overwhelmed, and it will be harder to focus on the message.
Be consistent with your colorsIf your animated text comes with decorations (i.e., frames, highlights, background), it’s a good idea to stay consistent with your text colors throughout the video. The rule of thumb is to go with your brand colors. But there is always room for experiment!
