  • Add emphasis with pops, jumps, rotations, and more


  • Shadow, reflection, chroma key, blending modes and more

Advanced Text Techniques

Take your text overlays to the next level with these tips:

Sync Text to Audio

Line up text animations to match music beats or voiceover timing. This takes some precision but makes an impact.

Layer Multiple Text Elements

Stack text layers, reveal them sequentially for visual interest. Adjust transparency so lower layers remain visible.

Text Tracking

Motion track text to moving footage. The text stays locked to a point on the video for a professional look.

Text Masking

Use a video clip to mask text, revealing it creatively as the video plays. This works for text animations or images.

Green Screen Text

Film text or images against a green backdrop, then overlay it on videos using the Chroma key tool. This opens up more possibilities.

Build Kinetic Typography Videos

Use a voiceover audio clip. Add text that visually represents the speech, animating the words in time. This takes work but results are engaging.

Exporting Text Videos

When done, tap the Export button to render and save your text video from KineMaster. You can choose resolution, aspect ratio and file format.

Now you know how to make cool text effects in the KineMaster video editor! With a bit of practice, you’ll be creating professional text animations to make eye-catching videos in no time.
