How To Add Text in CapCut Using iPhone

No matter the operating system you are using, CapCut caters to you. Follow the steps below to add text in CapCut using iPhone. 

Step 1 

The video preview, the timeline, and the navigation bar are all visible when you open a video in the CapCut app. To access your settings, Click Text

Step 2 

When you tap the Add text button, a menu with many tabs will appear. The tabs appear so you can alter various parts of your content. In the text menu tab, you will find the keyboard, style, effects, bubbles, and animation. 

Step 3 

When the menu appears, it will, by default, be on the “Keyboard” tab. This is where to type your text. 

Step 4

When you’re done, switch to the next tab, and the text will be superimposed on the video. Your text will first be displayed in a simple style, but you can go to the Style tab to personalize it further. This tab contains three settings, and each has its ribbon.

The first ribbon contains fonts that you can choose by tapping on one of the buttons displaying a font preview. The second ribbon has options for text borders, backgrounds, and highlights. The final ribbon is the most complex of all. This ribbon has detailed options that are related to text colors and effects. 

Step 5

Finally, there are several text animations in the Animation area. The text can be animated separately when it enters and leaves the frame, or you can set a looping animation that plays continuously. When you are done with your setting, tap the checkmark on the right side, and the text will be added to your video.

Features That Comes With The Style Ribbon 

There are many customization options that come with the third ribbon. These customization features can make your text very unique, and a few of them are mentioned below. 

  • Color 

You can change the color of letters using the simple color settings. When you choose a color, a slider for opacity will show up below the color palette so you may choose how transparent the text is.

  • Stroke 

This is responsible for controlling the stroke color. 

  • Background 

The background option is used to change the background color. When you tap the background option, it will bring up the opacity slider. 

  • Shadow 

The shadow feature creates a colored shadow behind the letters. Two more sliders will show up when you select the shadow color. One slider regulates opacity, while the other one manages shadow blur.

  • Spacing 

Spacing doesn’t have anything to do with color. But in this spacing feature, you will find various text alignment options here. The great thing about the spacing feature is its ability to adjust alignment both on a top-to-bottom and left-to-right axis. There are two sliders in this option, and one is below the editor. Both sliders control text spacing.

  • Bold Italic 

Bold italic is the final menu in this ribbon. It allows you to change your text to bold, italic or underlined.
