That’s right, you can take any media file like an MP3 or a short video clip and easily turn it into an exciting personal introduction for your videos!In this article I will walk you through my own introduction process and profile some of the best available software for turning your favorite songs, movies, or TV shows into awesome introductions that are sure to put youtube intro maker on top of your list.
Can I make viral videos?
Yes! A lot of professional YouTubers use this tactic to create very successful channels, but it’s the fast paced, creative and sometimes bizarre nature of these types of videos that really make them popular.
If you want to create a good intro video, it’s worth doing your research and considering whether making a fast paced intro maker or spoofing something like Breaking Bad or Dexter would work better for your channel.
Why do people not watch my videos?
In order to make a great intro, you need to show off the best parts of what your video is about. It’s a good idea to talk to your friends and ask them what they think might make intro video a good intro video. Be honest with yourself as well, and remember that every intro video is different, so you need to choose what you think will work with your channel.
Does this software have any special effects?
There are a number of effects that can be added to your intro video, but it’s up to you how much or how little of these extras you want. I personally go for a simple front cover with my name and a cool background. You can also include subtitles, but for beginners I recommend using the option to remove them entirely.
What video formats will it work with?
Many of the software programs that allow you to create an intro video will accept almost any media file type, however certain programs allow you to specify only certain media types, so be sure to check the terms and conditions before purchasing anything.
Your best bet would be changing your DVD into QuickTime format and saving it as an MP4, that way if your videos don’t work in any of the open source programs you can simply convert them again with a third party software application.
Do I have to be a graphic artist for this?
Absolutely not, the great thing with these programs is the fact that they are so easy to use and everyone can get great results with just a little bit of time. You’ll also have fun, especially if you’re not used to using graphic editing software.
