Arrows

A simple, yet powerful tool for video creation, arrows are here! With 13 different designs, you are sure to find the arrow that fits into your branded videos.

The arrow overlay allows for a few different customizations:

  1. Arrow Design: Drop down list of 13 different arrow styles
  2. Animation Style:
    • Move In – Arrow animation starts at the tail and moves forward until it lands at the head
    • Draw In – Arrow is revealed from the head to the tail
    • Fade In – Arrow is already drawn and fades in
    • None – No animation
  3. Start Delay – Set the start time for your arrow to animate in (by the second). Useful if you want other elements like text overlays to animate in first.
  4. Color of the arrow
  5. Width – Control the width of the arrow, the default is 50 with 200 being the maximum value.
  6. Use Middle Point – When placing the arrow you will see a middle point, to use if you want to add a curve. Uncheck the Middle Point box if you’d like it to go straight from the tail to head point.
  7. Use Curved Arrow – If checked, the bending through the middle point will be curved
