intros in 3 steps

Choose videos

You can choose videos from our 300 million stock videos in the library or upload your own clips. The number of clips combined in your video depends on your tastes and the topics you cover in your channel. We think that videos with several short clips (2-3 seconds each) combined look more dynamic. In some situations, though, laconic intro with one video and minimum animations will work better.

Edit video clips

Trim your video, add dimmers with different opacities and colors, adjust speed, zoom in or out. Write text on your intro video with your name and the name of your channel, customize colors and fonts. Add music to make the video even more effective. But keep consistency in mind: your video intro styles and music should always be the same.
