Add animated titles to a Clips video on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

With Live Titles, create animated titles for your video with your voice, in a style you choose.

To create Live Titles, speak while you record the video. When you play the video back, your voice recording appears as an animated title on the video. After you create a title, you can edit it. You can also include the recording of your voice along with the title, or just include the title.
