How To Make An Intro For YouTube
Here’s a visual tutorial of how to make your first intro with Pocket Video:
Begin by downloading the PocketVideo app on your phone. I’m an iPhone user so I will be showing how the app works on iOS. It looks like this:
You’ll now see this screen. Click the “+” button to begin a new project.
This screen will come up. Choose what platform your video will be used on. You can also make a custom video if you’d like.
I’m choosing “YouTube Vlog.”
Click the pink “+” button, and you’ll see a pink screen come up giving you the option to access your camera roll or take a photo.
Choose or take a photo that you’d like to use on your intro. You also be given the option to add a title or a YouTube video. When you click on “Title,” you’ll be taken to this screen where you can choose a template.
This is just one of many templates. There are six templates to choose from, with a variety of options, within each one. I added a photo of a screenshot I took from PocketVideo just for demonstration purposes.
You’ll see all the options available in the black bar above the timeline where you’ll see your video. Have fun sketching or adding photos or video stickers. The “Text” screen looks like this.
There are a ton of customization features you can have fun with. After you click on any of the icons, you’ll see a “Add + button.” Click that to be taken to the different options. For instance, if you click on the “Text” icon you’ll be taken to this screen where you can choose between a variety of options.
Change fonts and colors to get your title exactly how you want it. I’m particularly impressed with how many fonts are offered, and I love that you can drag and drop your title if you want to change where it’s at on the screen.
You can see the many banners offered below:
Experiment to see what works for you. Click on the “trashcan” icon any time you need to delete something you’ve added. If you like, you can also add gifs and stickers to your video:
Gifs are fun because they move, although, you can’t see that from this screenshot. Look at the fun stickers that are available:
Add filters and transitions or resize your intro. Trim and split to make sure there are no distracting clips. You can even change the speed – slow down the clips or speed them up, which is fun.
There are many transitions to choose from. Opt for the option “No Trans” if you’d rather not include on.
It’s easy to trim your clips. See below:
Finally, add audio from your iTunes library, and tweak the volume how you like it. A video isn’t complete without music.
Now press “Finish.” That’s it! You’ve just created an awesome intro to use on your videos. I didn’t show every single option that’s available in this tutorial – try it out for yourself.
