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 !

when you write a name how to make your custom intros, it has to be about exactly this topic not going to some F website and download stuff. make yourself that's what I want.

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.

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

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.

Looking for someone who I can pay to make a custom intro and outro.. I'm a huge fan! I just want to do it right the first time and don't feel as creative as I probably need to be.
