About a third of all the videos I watch on YouTube have a branded intro. It sets the tone and let’s you know that the person you’re watching is serious about creating consistent content. They’re also easier than ever to make thanks to a variety of cheap video editing tools.
On TV, the opening credit sequence is pretty much a thing of the past, but YouTube wants it to become a staple for online creators.
Starting today, you can now automatically add the same 3 second intro to all your videos with just a few clicks.
- Upload the three-second intro video you’d like to use to your channel as an unlisted video.
- On your channel’s InVideo Programming page, click “Add a channel branding intro” and select the intro from a list of eligible videos.
