WHY TEXT IS IMPORTANT IN YOUR VIDEOS
Videos are a lot about the quality of visuals, but it’s the smart use of text that can take a video from good to great. This is especially true for short-form videos. If you are a creator, use text for the following:
Clear Headlines, to set audience expectations
Reinforce your visuals with powerful words
Add punchlines and sign-offs to your video
HOW TO ADD TEXT USING DAILYCUTTING
When you click the add card button on the storyboard, you’ll see many options to add text - from titles to descriptions and other special cards.
Once you’ve selected the card, you just need to fill a simple form. Add text, choose image, done.
Use the Rich Text Editor to change the colours of a single word or phrase to add emphasis. Save card once done.
IMPORTANCE OF TITLES/ HEADLINES
The main use of text in your video is the title or the headline. Regardless of what kind of video you are making, you must use the title to capture your viewer's attention. DailyCutting allows you to choose from a variety of title cards, with different animation styles - from ones that pop, to other elegant options. Pick from any of these based on the tone of your video.
FONTS, SIZES, COLOURS
At DailyCutting, we don't want you to think like a designer. At the same time, consistency in terms of fonts, sizes and colours are essential when it comes to making a high-quality video. Our colour palette allows you to choose from a set of built-in text-and-background combinations, preset font sizes and a list of fonts sorted by themes to help you nail the perfect look for your video.
OVERLAYS, CAPTIONS, GRAPHICS
You can shoot a high-quality video using just your phone. Turning that clip into a professional video is another thing altogether. The easiest way to do this is by adding smart text overlays and graphics. On DailyCutting, you need no editing experience to do this. From name and designation tags to full frame text overlays, everything can be created by filling up simple forms.
CHARTS, GRAPHS, TABLES
The use of text in videos extends to how you present your data as well. On DailyCutting, you can choose from a library of bar charts, pie charts, tables, and much more to create animated data overlays with zero editing or design experience. Just choose a card you like, input the data in a form (or copy-paste from excel/ sheets) and you have a stunning, informative visual ready to go.
