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.

What is the best font size for captions?

What is the best font size for captions?

There isn't a one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best font size for captions depends on a few different factors. It's important to consider the platform or device where the GIF will be viewed, as well as the length of the caption and the font itself. In general, you want to choose a font size that is easy to read and doesn't overwhelm the GIF. 

A good rule of thumb is to aim for a font size between 20-40 points, depending on the font and the length of the caption. You can also experiment with different font sizes and preview how they look on your GIF before finalizing your choice.
