Before you can publish your recorded video to your viewers, you need to polish the video so that you can get everyone's appreciation. This is where the magic of video editing comes into the scene. Editing your video is not just about trimming unnecessary parts and adding transitions and effects. The titles and texts you display on your video play a major role in your video content. In fact, you can create a video based on texts and titles only.

Instead of showing static texts, you should create animated texts and place them in the video wherever appropriate. You do not need to download a video editor on your computer or smartphone to add animated text to your video. You can make text animation online using an online text animation maker. We will illustrate the steps to create animated text with three different online editors.
