AVS Video Editor - Using Text Overlay

Text overlay effects let you place text - simple or animated - over the video clip you would like to edit. To start adding text overlay effects please click the Text Overlay button in Create Movie menu pane. AVS Video Editor will suggest that you choose the text effect to place over the edited video clip.

AVS Video Editor has several samples of the text overlay effect to help you achieve your creative best.

The main groups of the text overlay are:

  • Simple text - allows you to add moving subtitles to your video.
  • Static text - allows you to add any static message to your video.
  • Dynamic text - allows you to add composite text effects to your video.

You can experiment with them to turn your ideas into images. See the Using Timeline in Text Overlay section for more detailed instructions on how to use different effects.
