How to Add Text to Video

You can customize the text content and effects with VidAir to make your videos stand out. There are two types of text: Basic Text and Dynamic Text. You can add multiple Basic Text effects but only one Dynamic Text effects for each scene.

Tips 1. Add/Replace/Delete Text

From the left panel, you can see the current Dynamic Text used. Move your mouse to the text effect thumbnail and you can see the Replace button. Click on it to replace the current one.

For scenes without default text effects, you will see the Add button when moving your mouse. Click on it to add a text effect.

You can add multiple basic texts for each scene, so you can only see the Add button on the thumbnail.
