What comes to your mind when you think about your favorite talk show? Most of you will definitely say that it’s the intro. Whenever you hear the familiar tunes and see the intro, you immediately recognize what show is about to begin.
Does the intro make the talk show memorable? Or, is it vice versa? We can’t tell it for sure. One thing that we are sure about is that you can create an awesome intro for your talk show. And, if you stay consistent and use that intro for all your episodes, there’s a higher chance for it to be remembered by your audience.
Here’s some great news for you: you can make your intro yourself. You will need a strong internet connection, a computer, and just a little creativity.
With Renderforest, you can create impressive talk show intros with the help of ready-made video templates. Pick a template, customize it and get your intro in minutes. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to do it step by step.
Here’s a talk show intro that we’ve created. Let’s watch it!
Now, we’ll show you how you can create one yourself. We’ve created the video with Spotlight Slideshow template. Click on “Create now” to start editing.
To create your project, click “Add scene” to select the necessary scenes.
This template offers 4 scene categories: intro and outro scenes, logo holders, video and image placeholders. Choose the scenes you like and customize them.
For our talk show intro, we’ve picked the following scenes and edited them.
On the left side of the editor, you can see the editing tools. Write your texts in text holders and make sure that you don’t exceed the character limit of the field. Each field has it’s own character count.
Add your images in 3 different ways: via image URL, by uploading from your device, or by picking an already uploaded image from your Media Library. Select an image placeholder and add your image files.
In our intro, we don’t have a video, but here’s how you can add one in case you need it. First, you need to pick a video placeholder. Add videos in 4 different ways: via video URL, by uploading from your device, by choosing an already uploaded video from your Media Library, or by adding a stock video from our Stock Footage library with 195.000+ videos.
Here’s how you can add a stock video. Click on “Stock Footage” in the editor, type your term or keyword to find a relevant video. Let’s try to find videos related to talk shows.
Pick a video and insert it. Then, you can trim your selected video and add the parts you want to have in your intro.
Click on “Trim” to finalize it.
Once you finish editing your video, go to the “Color” section and pick a custom color for your video.
Then, choose a music track for your intro. Our music section offers a wide variety of tracks from different genres. Besides, you can upload your own track and voiceover. For our talk show intro, we’ve picked “Cinematic Dubstep Trailer” track.
So, you almost finished. It’s time to preview your video. Go to the “Preview” section and choose “Free Preview”.
Your video will be ready in minutes.
If you want to change something, you can always get back to editing. Your projects are saved in “My Videos” section in the dropdown menu. Download or share your video for free, make a single purchase or subscribe to one of our plans, it’s all up to you.
