When you finish editing your video, you might want to add titles, captions and a logo to give your work a professional appearance. Here are some apps to help you achieve that.
LumaFusion is a professional video editing app that mimics the functions of desktop software like Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X. As well as comprehensive multi-track editing, you can add titles, captions, and a semi-transparent logo, without leaving the app. Here is a tutorial to get you started.
It’s also possible to import branded fonts into LumaFusion. Here is a tutorial explaining how to do this:
KineMaster allows you to add titles and a logo, and is mentioned below under Android apps.
Gravie is the easiest of the two to use. Caption timings can be adjusted by sliding your finger along the timeline, making the app fast and intuitive for long projects. Here is a short instruction video:
PowerDirector also supports the addition of custom fonts. Here’s a tutorial explaining how to do this:
PowerDirector and KineMaster are both subscription-based apps, which makes them expensive over time.
So if you’re using a free or cheap video editing app that doesn’t support titles, captions or a logo, you can do this on Android phones in a separate app.
One good choice is FilmoraGo. It allows you to add captions, a logo and other elements to your video, and it works on iOS and Android.
This video by manual contributor Sara Pacia is an example of what you can achieve with FilmoraGo.
Like iMovie, FilmoraGo also integrates with a powerful desktop version called Filmora. Unlike iMovie, the desktop version is not free. A lifetime subscription costs around $US60.
If you don’t need captions, then a great free Android app for adding a logo is Video Watermark Logo.
