How to add titles

This article is a copy of this user guide page: user guide page 

Adding text titles to your movie allows you to express your thoughts and supplement the audio with subtitles.

PLEASE NOTE that you can not add existing subtitle files to Movavi Video Editor. In order to do that you need to use Movavi Video Converter.

Step 1: Go to the Titles tab

On the left-hand side of the window, click the Titles button to view the titles collection. Click on a title style's thumbnail to preview its looks in the player and choose the titles you want to use.

Step 2: Add a titles clip

To add titles to your project, pick a title style you like and drag its thumbnail onto the title track of the Timeline, right above the video track. A title track will appear above the video track: drop the titles here, onto the time where you want them to appear. The titles will appear as a purple ribbon on the Timeline.
 
The beginning of each title clip is linked to a corresponding video clip on the video track. This way, whenever you move or edit the video clip, its titles will always stay in sync.
 
If you already have a titles clip on the Timeline, you can add another clip onto the same timeframe to make them play simultaneously: simply place one title clip under another.
 
Step 3: Edit titles
 
When you've added a title clip, it will start out with the default text and looks. Double-click the title's ribbon on the Timeline to show editing options in the player.
 
Title clip properties
 
Click the cogwheel icon at the top of the editing panel to see title clip properties. Here, you can change the duration of the titles and animation speed (how fast they will appear or disappear).
 
Editing text
 
1. In the preview, double-click on the text box you want to edit.
 
2. Enter the new text.
 
3. Click the Font properties button and select the font style, size, and alignment options for the selected text.
 
4. Click the Color properties button and choose a color for the text, and the outline's width and color.
 
5. Drag the text box to where you want to see it on the video.
 
Editing decoration elements
Some titles come with frames, ribbons, and other decorations. To change their color, select the decoration element you want to edit and click the Color properties button. Then, click the Decorations color palette and choose the new color.
 
Finally, click Apply to exit editing mode.
