Free software to add a title page to a video?


[link to this post]
 
Does anyone have any suggestions for some free video software that can be used to add a title page to a video and perhaps a few textual titles throughout?

e.g. 0-10second display a yellow background containing a list of text with timestamps and at each of the timestamps throughout the video output the appropriate title.

I can only find free stuff which requires registration to actually use/download the application.

Thanks

It's a long time since I've used it myself but, how about Windows Movie Maker?

VSDC Free Video Editor is very good,has a lot of features, so does take a while to find your way around it.

Assuming you are using Windows Windows Movie Maker should already be installed. Click on the search magnifying glass in the bottom task bar and type Windows Movie Maker. This should bring up the app.
https://ninite.com/ is a great and safe place to get free software. There might be something there.

Windows Movie Maker was part of Windows Essentials 2012 which is no longer available for download.
In Windows 10 the Photos app has a built-in Video Editor which is similar.

My bad. I still have an Windows Essentials 2012 disk that came with an XP machine. Around 5 years ago I reinstalled Windows on my windows 7 PC. I installed things from the disk and later updated to Win 10. I forgot it is a remnant on my PC from that.

Try the Microsoft Photos App from the App Store

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/microsoft-photos/9...

Apparently, this is a newish offering to replace Windows Movie Maker for Windows 10?

Haven't tried it myself, but it seems to have a fair set of reviews if you nose around.

Hope this helps,
All the best, stay safe,
Regards,
Trevor
