ToGraphic4U YouTube Proposed Video Intro 1

YouTube Video Intro

I have not been able to work on any new tutorials as there has been many things going on personally, good and bad. However, I have found some time to work on updating my YouTube video intros. The intro seen here is the first one I have completed so far. I have a few more in mind for my ToGraphic4U YouTube channel, and I would like some input.

Video intros can make a big impact on viewership, as they can, believe it or not, make a viewer decide, besides the Video Thumbnail, whether they want to watch your video or not. If the intro is too long, that kind of makes people leave your channel and check out another one! Viewers want to get right to the point, I know I do!

I have wanted to make my video intros shorter for some time now, yet still keep the description of what my videos include. I don’t think it’s too short.

This intro was made possible by http://ramindigital.com/

You can find some amazing and awesome FREE files for your videos too! The text in the files that you download can be changed to what you want. Not only can you get free video intros, but this guy even offers free tutorials how to download, change the text, download the sound files/music files, and sync the audio with the videos. I will also offer tutorials on how it’s done as well as soon as possible!

 

How To Add Annotations To End Card – Pt. 3

This is the part that was intended to be part of Part 2, but something went wrong as usual.

So here is Part 3, where I should you in YouTube, how to add annotations to your videos, Social Media icons, and the YouTube Subscribe button!

How To Make An End Card Part 1

In the second part of this tutorial I will be in Sony Vegas Movie Studio, showing you how to make your end card part of your video, and how to place your videos in the place holders.

After this tutorial will follow the next, which is Part 3, which takes place in YouTube.

I hope you enjoy the video.

How To Design A Video End Card In Photoshop – Pt. 1

This first tutorial will show you one of the many ways you can design a video end card. One of the things I did not show was that in the design phase in Photoshop, you can add a background there, whether it’s a solid color background, gradient, patterned, or a still image. The still image I show in this video, was a picture I took with my smartphone! I think it turned out better than I thought! The only type of background you cannot use in Photoshop is a motion background, and no, you can’t use end cards in Windows Live Movie Maker.

This 2 part tutorial turned into 3, because I lost the rendered file, where I jump from Vegas Movie Studio, into YouTube.

I also caught that I said in the Part 2 video, that I’m going to show you how to get into YouTube! What I meant to say was “I am now going to show you in YouTube, how to annotate you videos and links in your end card!

I hope you find value from my tutorials, and if you do, please leave a like, and share!

A Word About YouTube’s Three Second Video Intros

Yes or No for Three Second Video Intros?

YouTube is doing away with their 3 Second branded video intros, a feature they released around the end of April  or the first part of May 2013. However, due the the demand of requests from YouTubers, that feature will no longer be available, unless you opted for it at the beginning, and wish to continue.

I personally like the intro, and though you were given the choice to have your intro after a certain date, you really couldn’t add it only to the videos you wanted. For example, I don’t want the intro on my tutorial videos, only where I appear in front of the camera, (talking head videos), which is usually when I do a product review.

I was kind of bummed out when I first heard that YouTube was getting rid of the intro feature, because that was going to be in one of my Photoshop tutorials, which  is why I started my Sony Vegas Movie Studio tutorials. However, I can still proceed, because now you can choose which videos you want your intro on!
