Video Style: Comics
What kind of videos is Comics best for?
With Comics, tell an epic story where you and your friends are the super heros!
This style shows your photos and videos in animated comics strips. Add captions and dialogs to complete your story.
What can I do in Comics that I can't do in other video styles?
In Comics you can add custom intro & outro scenes.
- TheTitle Intro will have your title appear as your photos quickly slide one of top of the other and the background turns red. To add a Title Intro scenes, you need to have at least 5 photos to your timeline.
- The Credits Outro will show a conclusion drop on top of your last photo. To add a Credits Outro scene, you need to add at least one photo in your timeline.
Another special feature of Comics is the filters that are applied on your photos and video clips, which give the comics feel to the video. Video clips will start looking like drawings half way through, and your photos will have various filters applied to them.
In Comics you also have a special Zoom & Pan option when you double-click on an image: by default it is set on "automatic" but you can choose a key point if needed. This lets you set manually the key part of your photo, to make sure it won’t be cropped out of your video. Once you’ve set the important point in your photo, it will be shown in your video with a gentle pan and zoom effect (aka Kenburns) centered around that key point.
This option is available for the following styles: Tiles, Martini, 1901, Snowflakes, Diamond and Humble.
How can I add text to my video? How long can it be?
There are three ways you can add text to a Comics video. You can create a Title Slide that will appear on its own between photos, you can add a Caption on top of photos, and you can add a title and punchline with the Title Intro and Credits Outro.
To add a Title Slide, click on the big red plus button in your timeline and choose Add title slide. A Title Slide can show up to 4 lines of text, each line showing up to 35 characters.
To add a Caption on top of a photo, video or map: open the menu for that item and selectAdd Text Overlay. A Caption can show up to 2 lines of text, of up to 30 characters each. Keep it short so it stays readable!
To add a Title Intro, you need to add at least 5 photos in your timeline. Your Title must be shorter than 12 characters.
To add a Custom Intro, you just need 1 photo in your timeline. A Custom Outro can show up to 3 lines of text, each showing up to 30 characters.
