How do I create Intro Videos?
Simple! Browse through Intro Maker's selection of video templates and pick one you like. Follow the instructions on screen and your customized video preview will render on Intro Maker's servers in a few minutes. After you view your preview, you can make as many changes as you like and repeat the process.
Why does the preview video look so low quality?
Preview videos are rendered at 480x270 and 15 frames per second. These super fast render settings allow ust to create videos quickly so that you preview your customizations right away. Most of us are used to viewing high definition video at 30 frames per second, so these previews may look low resolution and a little grainy.
Don't worry—when you order your final HD video it will be completely clear, crisp, and in full HD.
Do you have a video for ____?
Intro Maker categorizes templates by category, duration, customization options, and keyword. You can also use the search bar to look for specific words which might be in titles or descriptions that don't show up as keywords or categories. If you can't find a video you like please submit a request
