💬 Comments on the video

Your headline is a bit misleading (click bait on purpose I think)... it should be more like: "Where to buy intro video templates for your YouTube videos" since this is only a video where you tell where you got your resources (which are pretty much ready-to-render excluding the replacement of footage) and not so much how to MAKE one yourself. You do have great content in the channel but this video seemed way off the topic from my point of view since I work with After Effects on daily basis and was expecting something else.

I use 'Panzoid' it's really good, you just choose a template put your text in it and download it!
And it's in your browser, so no download !

I created my intro myself in after effects, from scratch. I actually learned motion graphics from free tutorials on YouTube and used these skills in this project.

Well, for my video intro i used the website named "Panzoid". This site makes you able to create a video intro for free. If anybody needs to make a free video intro you definitely need to go to this website. I'm gonna make a video on this soon... 😊 And finally Thank you so much sean it really helped me...

I deconstructed my logo and used premiere to "put it back together"

For now I’ve just been using InShot. I also take pics with my iPhone (usually portrait mode) or I use a camera app called Focos (great depth of field effect) and just put my YT name/FB name over top of the pic and let music play over.

I also watched a bunch of videos with intros and timed them. Usually between 5 and 10 seconds is a normal intro.

Hey Sean, I use Adobe Premier for my editing, haven’t done my intro in after effects yet, but I’ll do it soon.
You are welcome to check my Chantal, maybe suggest something. Thank you!

This video just popped today in my YT recommendation's feed. I didn't notice it's almost 3 years old! Definitely old, but GOLD!!

Thanks! My friend was just asking me how I create my intros, and eventhough I create my animated intros from scratch using After Affects, I told my friend to find a video about Intro Templates. Since your videos are great, I referred your video! I'll be making a quick tutorial on how I do my intros soon if you want to check it out! But, as always thanks a ton for this video! This is perfect to show my beginner friends, as well as if I need to have a quick Pro Intro for a client!

Damn Dude you're awesome. My question is how do you do the "Think Media" icon in the bottom right corner that stays there through the video and, how about the icon there by the subscribe button. HOW HOW HOW. Thanks for this video because I was wanting to know how these intros and outtros were done!

That was awesome man! I loved the download list of things to start out with! That made everything easy for me. Now I know exactly what to get.

They sound like some great resources, clearly I have been trying to do it the hard way using Sony Vegas
Cheers :-))

I use Filmora as an editing program and my intro is an overlay on top of my name and background :)

I found learning After Effects so I could create my own original intro quite rewarding, so that’s always an option too!
