How to create a news intro
Write and record
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.
