Increase brand awareness.

Add an outro to the end of your videos to highlight your logo or watermark.

It’s as easy as pressing one button to add a professional and memorable ending to all your video content. Here’s how to do it in the Contenter app:

———-

To add an outro to the end of your video, first you need to upload a logo or watermark.

If you use Contenter and haven’t done it already, you should. It’s simple, free and easy (plus you get to remove the Contenter watermark in the upper-right corner)

After going to the watermark menu (by pressing the tag button on the bottom of the screen) you can toggle the Contenter watermark on/off or upload your own brand logo or watermark.

Upload it once and it will automatically be applied to all video projects.

If you use a PNG you can have a clear background. You can upload any image from your phone to use as your video watermark

Now that you have a watermark you can toggle on/off the outro button to add a 3 second outro to the end of your video that will highlight your brand.

An upgrade to Contenter PRO also lets you upload and manage multiple watermarks if you have several different brands or products, but more on that later!

Feature Highlight – Search Free Stock Images

You can create professional content without even pressing the record button.

That’s because Contenter lets you search for free stock images that are licensed and ready for commercial use making it the easiest way to create content fast.

If you’re making an advertisement with stock footage it’s important to attribute when necessary because you don’t want to get in trouble using someone else’s footage for commercial reasons.

Contenter uses Google search advanced search “free to use, share or modify, even commercially.” Here’s how to make a video using stock footage with the Contenter app!

———-

Once you start a video project, press “STOCK” to search the internet for free to use stock images to go into your video.

Then, if I search for a word like “POTATO,” Contenter will pull up all of the commercially viable images from across the web for that subject.

You can choose ANY of the results in this menu without worrying about infringing on license agreements.

After selecting the images you want to use you can do additional searches for related images you want to go into your video. I’ll choose these 4 for now…

And voila! You’ve got the main images for your video and are ready to add captions.

Make a Video from Scratch with Custom Editing!

Contenter is a great app for creating content on the fly.

We wanted to create the simplest, fastest video app for businesses and individuals (who might not necessarily know about creating video) to create their own great content to regularly upload on their news feeds.

In doing so, we intentionally hid some of the more advanced editing features that videographers and people with experience making videos on other apps and software might find useful or essential.

Today we’ll show you how to access some custom text editing features so that you can design the perfect captions for your video using Contenter. Here we go!

———-

After starting a video project, adding your footage and some text you can tap the “” button to access customizable caption editing.

If you’re new to Contenter, this menu is a bit hidden. It let’s you adjust the design, layout and length of your captions to your heart’s content!

In the menu, there are four main features of your caption that you can customize.

On the far left are the caption for text animations, that will change how your captions enter the screen.

Next are the location of captions, then the background and finally the time your caption will appear on the screen.

If I tap the caption location icon it will change the place my text is located, which you can use to match the images and content of your videos as needed.

The text locations we offer are all based on thousands of real video ads for social media.

The one I apply below is aligned to the center, rather than the original location of diagonal and to the side.

Next if you tap the background icon, it will add different elements to make your text pop.

Text is key in any social media campaign, where the majority of videos are watched on autoplay and without sound.

When I tap it once we get this nice banner to make it stand out.
