How To Add Custom Text In iMovie

It can be difficult to get text to look good in iMovie since you can only choose from a limited number of title options. But you can use a graphics app or Keynote to create any text you want, and then overlay that text on your video. By copying a frame of your video, you can adjust the text to look good in Keynote, and then export just the text as a transparent image. This text can fit the video perfectly, or be used as a resizable and moveable element to position in iMovie.

    I use iMovie to create my videos. But, it never occurred to me that I could create custom text in a different app and then use that text as an overlay in iMovie. This is brilliant, thank you Gary!

    Thank you once again! I’ve been using Keynote for titles but I was using the green screen option. This seems a lot easier. 👍
