Step3: Adjust the parameters of “Text” filter

Once you add “Text” filter to the video clip, an editable text box will display on the video and you are capable of adjusting parameters like text font, text size, text color, text position, background color, etc. It is available for you to input any content in the text box so that you are free to add any text annotations to the video clip. Moreover, you can save your favorite settings of “Text” filter as your own presets so that you can apply it to another video clip directly. Please visit “How to Create Your Own Filter Presets” to learn how to save your favorite filter setting as filter presets.
