News Intro Maker

Speed and accessibility are crucial when you’re trying to publish breaking news and that’s something we kept in mind when developing Flixier. Our cloud-powered technology ensures that videos are always processed and ready for publishing in a couple of minutes, regardless of how powerful your computer is. 


Speaking of computers, Flixier runs entirely in your web browser and stores your projects in the cloud. That means it doesn’t require any installs or downloads in order to use. You can access Flixier and work on your videos regardless of whether you’re using your desktop editing workstation or a laptop while you’re on the go. You can even share projects with your team and have someone else edit the footage that you’ve just recorded.

How to create a news intro

1

Write and record

Write a script for your news intro. Make sure it’s succinct and summarises the whole event. Then, open up Flixier and use the Record option to record your voiceover. Click the Import button to bring over any relevant footage.
2

Edit

Drag the voiceover and footage down to the Timeline at the bottom of the screen. Arrange it chronologically and then double click on them to add them to the Canvas. You can add customizable motion titles and animated overlays to your news intro from the left side menus.
3

Export

Once you’re done editing your news intro, click the Export button. Flixier will take a couple of minutes to publish it and then you’ll be free to save it to your computer.

Add animated titles and lower thirds

In order for an intro to hook people in, it needs to be visually appealing to people. Flixier offers a huge library of professionally animated, fully customizable motion titles and animated lower thirds that you can add to your news videos just by clicking and dragging. After you add them to your intro, you can edit the text, colors and even the fonts to make sure that they fit the topic of the video just right!


Record voice overs or generate them automatically

If you want to add a personal touch to the beginning of your news videos, you can use Flixier to record a voice-over using your computer’s microphone and then edit it along with the rest of your clip, right in the app. Alternatively, our neural powered text-to-speech technology lets you generate a natural sounding voice over based on a script in over a dozen different languages.


Access copyright free music and footage 

Flixier comes with built-in libraries packed with anything a news intro maker needs. You can add copyright-free music to your intro just by dragging it over to the TImeline, or look through our libraries of stock footage to find images and clips that you can use as B-roll for your stories. The sheer amount of media available guarantees that there will always be something that's right for your news story.

I’ve been looking for a solution like Flixier for years. Now that my virtual team and I can edit projects together on the cloud with Flixier, it tripled my company’s video output! Super easy to use and unbelievably quick exports.

Evgeni

My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.
