Is It Possible To Add a Caption To Video To Identify Only?

After making a video and saving to your iPhone, usually (in my case) it is not identified in the image displaying the video. It simply shows the first frame with the length of the video. Is it possible to add a caption (title) to this identifying image so I know which video this is instead of having to play it for e.g. a few seconds wen my title appears? In other words the caption can last for e.g. 1/4 second in that I essentially only want it to appear in my “all photos” window. Hope this question makes sense. Thanks in advance. Ron

    Nope. The Photos app doesn’t allow you to add proper titles, descriptions or keywords to your photos. You have to do that on your Mac later. But then you can’t see those titles on your iPhone, though you can use them for searching.

    The idea you have, to actually alter the video with rendered titles at the start is possible using a video editor like iMovie. But it would be a lot of work to do, and it would create a second copy of the video.

    Thanks Gary. I thought as much. The videos I’m referring to all were made with FCP. So, I don’t want to redo anything (i.e. re-render, etc.) . I t was more of a hope that with e.g. iPhone Clips or something similar a title could be added to the image..an identifier if you will. Thanks much for your answer! Cheers
