It's not a thing about "text to a movie", but with handy text tools, you can turn your videos into self-expressive movies.

1. Import and add a video to the Timeline

Before adding a video to the Timeline, you need to import videos to the supplied User's Album. This way, all your editing won't apply to the original videos. Just keep them safe. To add titles, drag and drop a video from User's Album to Timeline first.

2. Apply a text template and change text

Double click the text thumbnail will open the text editor panel, where you can type in your text, and then select the font, color, animation, etc. Preset styles are also included. Click "Return" to go back to the primary window.

I was thinking of using it for a system demo. Is it possible to insert a "blank" or "non-image" screen to transition between different sections?

This program DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO CUT AND PASTE TEXT into the video. I have tried many times and have found others online complaining about the same issue. You have to type all text into it which makes the video editing process take a lot of time. It's ok if you are using the free version I guess but it is not worth paying for the program if they won't fix this problem.
