Once you have visited the tubearsenal.com website, go straight to the templates and pick the intro section shown below. It is here that you will be able to choose the intro template that entices you. To help you in selecting, a simple hover of the mouse cursor on a template will give you a preview of how it will look like. Once you have done that, click on the “Customize Now” link just below the template so that you can make the necessary adjustments.
Make Adjustments to the Template
As we mentioned earlier, this online app is simple and overly intuitive to use which means nothing should prove a hassle at all. This step carries almost everything and will, therefore, feature several sub-steps that make up this main step. Without further ado, let us look at what needs to be done here. But before that, make sure you give an appropriate name to your projects in the instance you do not want to work with the one providdéd with the template you have chosen.
Add Your Logo
I am sure you are looking to brand your channel with a good intro and therefore presume you have a logo that you need to be showcased here. In the “Customize” section, head over to the area shown below and click on the indicated button so that you can add your personalized logo.
Adjust, Personalize, and Customize Text
In the input box labeled 1, delete the text available there, and replace it with your own text that is in line with your YouTube channel. Next, hit the nudge button labeled 2 so that you can tinker with some extra parameters in the area labeled 3 that are related to the text you have added including the positioning, rotation in terms of degrees and not forgetting the scale factor. On top of that, you get the chance to adjust the color by clicking on the button labeled 4 if you do not want to input the hex code directly.
Adjust Template-specific Settings
Tube Arsenal provides you with a cornucopia of templates and as so, each has some special settings compared to others. Therefore, there are some extra adjustments that may not be in all templates. For instance, with the template I am working with in this tutorial, I am able to adjust some components like the smoke and background color as shown below. Kindly note that you may have different options here if you picked another template. At the end of the day, you should be able to adjust appropriately. The preview option on the left-hand side should help you in this.
Add an Audio Track
As much as it is still okay to have a YouTube video intro without audio, it is prudent to add some sound to it in order to make it less boring. And that is why Tube Arsenal gives you this option as shown below. Just hit any of the buttons that you can get to pick your own audio or even from the stock library.
Better yet, Tube Arsenal also lets you trim the audio even before you can include it in your intro as can be seen below. This interface is as a result of clicking on the button referenced above. Clicking on the button labeled 1 will allow you to add your audio track of choice from the local storage. Labeled 2 and 3 show the markers that you have to drag in order to perform the necessary trimming to remove unwanted parts of the track. Once that is done, click the “Save” button labeled 4 to add the audio.
Preview and Download
Now that you have made the necessary changes, it is time to check the results. On the left-hand side, you have the preview window necessary for the task at hand. Simply click on the “Preview Movie” button labeled 1 and wait for the preview to start rendering in the window labeled 2. Be sure to take into account the note included there in case you find the preview a bit laggy.
The moment you are satisfied after looking at the preview, it is not the perfect time to download the final YouTube intro as prepared by Tube Arsenal. Easy peasy here. Simply choose your resolution of choice under Label 1 and then hit the final button labeled 2 to complete the process. A YouTube video intro is not that big and therefore should not take ages to save to your local computer for further actions.
This will mark the end of the process of making a video intro with Tube Arsenal and you now have a fancy intro to make your videos be more captivating. As you may have come to realize, the process is not complex at all when you consider how much effort it takes to achieve the same with programs that do not offer any templates.
This is tacit proof that this program is reliable enough to give you exactly what you are looking for. Even if you have to part with a small amount of money for the watermark-free intro, it is worth it more than when you have to buy a pricey software to do this, of which it will even be overly time-consuming.
