Like a movie you can add custom title and cast to your video. To add title you have to click on Titles button. It will show the list to all title styles. Pick a particular style and click on Settings button to get the available settings (type your text and set parameters like font, size and color, add shadows to letters, adjust animation and other settings as desired) for that style. Once you are ready to apply a title then you can use drop down of Add button to select where you want to put this title.

Overlay titles are description about a particular scene. To add this drag desired title style on a particular moment. You may use red cursor to move it to some point.

Fade effects may be applied on audio files so you can set the audio fade-in and fade-out duration.

This is required step while you’re editing a video because you may need to make some changes in video later, like changing video format; it’s better than converting video with some video converter. You can save the project in a specified folder of your computer’s hard disk.
9. Export the finalized video

Click on Save Movie button and choose the desired export option from the list of available presets and click Save button.
