Adding Titles, Credits to Your Movies

Titles or Captions are easy to add with Windows Movie Maker.
Rolling Credits are a special type of titles. Make sure you include Rolling Credits in your very first movie so you can list the name of the new budding movie director: you. Watch the video to see how that’s done.


Notes &Tips

  • A title can take up the whole screen (solid color background)  or it can be overlayed over your video or over your photo.
  • If you do a title over your video, the title appears in the Title Overlay track on your timeline.
  • You can slide title overlays left and right to make it pop up at the precise moment.
  • You can also trim and extend title overlays to control how long they stay on the screen.
  • There are many title animations to choose from.  My favorites: Basic TitleSubtitleNews Video Inset,News Banner and Newspaper.  That last one is really cool, you must check it out.
