Component Type + New Templates for November

New Video Type: Component

Most of the video templates on Intro Maker are ready-to-use templates, but I had a customer request come in for a component template. Because Intro Maker doesn't (yet!) support uploading video, adding titles over the top of an existing video requires some extra editing.

The Text Overlay Component is designed to let you render 5 news-style titles that you can overlay on top of your pre-shot video. Just in case you don't know how to do that, I cut together a little tutorial for how I'd do that in Premiere or AfterEffects:

I might do more video walkthroughs and expand that into a bigger feature later. It's a good way to BOTH publish more content on the YouTube channel and expand the content on the video pages.

IntroCave is a one-person-show operated by Will Hankinson, but it's not 100% accurate to say every word is written by me. Some articles were live on the site when I took over. I hire writers from time to time to work on specific articles. People keep asking me to do guest posts, but I haven't actually seen any relevant submissions yet. "Intro Maker staff" might make a better by-line, but currently that's just me. I've been building digital things for 10+ years now, and some of my favorite projects are posted over at my personal website if you want to take a look!
