I have an MP4 that I uploaded from my Android to my Ubuntu workstation for editing. What tools can I use on Ubuntu to fade in and out professional-looking text?
You can use Openshot or Kdenlive to achieve this effect.
To add text to your video, go to
- Title→New Title
- Title→New Animated Title
in the menu. You can add effects and transitions to Titles as you would to any other component of the video.
You can add a title clip (text) to your video by going to:
- Project→Add Title Clip
Or you can do it by right clicking on the project tree and clicking "Add Title Clip".
As with Openshot, you can add effects and transitions to Title Clips.
**Kdenlive will pull in some KDE dependencies.*
