One final piece of the editing puzzle is adding text or logos to your video. By now you’re a proper producer, so you should probably start calling these ‘titles.’
For best practice, I would recommend saving these until last, then you can see how they look with everything else that’s going on. Also any effects you’ve applied to your video won’t inadvertently mess up your titles. Personally, I think it’s best to keep things simple. Stick to rider’s names and maybe a title for your video. Keep it to a font that’s clear to read and isn’t too ‘wacky.’
Annotating your video with lengthy descriptive text in between shots is boring to look at. If someone can’t tell what’s going on just by watching, it means you could definitely improve your story telling through editing. There’s no reason you can’t get creative and even make some custom titles, like in this season’s Bearmotion series (above).
