How to Add "Pop Up Text" to Your Videos

How to Add “Pop Up Text” to Your Videos

– In this video I show you how you can add Pop Up Text to your videos to emphasize those important moments of your recordings.

The app used in this video to record your screen is called ScreenFlow. It is a Mac only software, however there is an equivalent I like for PC that’s virtually the same called Camtasia Studios.

    Thanks for the tip, Pat! I have been creating some more videos lately and this is a very helpful tip. I always enjoy listening to your podcasts and checking out your site from time to time. As with most of your fans, I particularly appreciate that you share your experiences and resources. You definitely know how to give people value. Keep up the great work and I look forward to more of your content. With a little hard work I hope to be doing what you are doing someday soon!

    Love this video. Do you know how to do a video where I can pop up a name with a down arrow to show who a person is in the video? Imagine a video of a soccer game and I want to point out 2 people as they play.
