    We are a small team of ex-engineers from Adobe and Disney trying to make professional video design and creation fast and easy. We built and launched Typito (typito.com) a year back. We've been getting decent traction since then with marketers and agencies using the product and the likes of Buffer featuring us.

    An important learning we got in the past few months after launching Typito is that a very big factor that stands between professional videos and the rest is the use of high quality motion graphic text effects. And unfortunately this is something that's restricted to a smaller circle of expertise in Adobe After Effects (and other complicated tools) supported by market-places like MotionArray and VideoBlocks. We've been working on making these text effects easily accessible for the past few months and have come up with our first collection of customisable text effects sorted by the most searched use-cases and the best brands that use them.

    Would love to know what you think about this project. Looking forward to some tough feedback. Also curious to know what you think of building a market-place for easy to use templates with a bunch of third party video apps integrated (currently these templates only work on Typito) and a guild of motion graphic artists contributing to it (while getting paid of course).

    Note: I've mostly been a lurker here since joining the community last year when I started learning how to use Sketch for design. Guilty of that, but I hope that doesn't stop you from participating in this conversation. Thanks!

      looks exciting!

      I use imovie to edit my videos (noob!) and often feel limited by what I can do

      will give this a try

        Thanks Siddharth! Would love to know your thoughts after using a few text templates to create a video. I'm sure we have a lot to improve on! :)

    I can see a use case for this in my freelance marketing work! small, easy to consume videos have been a staple of my marketing work for the last year and half and it seems like we'll be seeing a lot of innovation in video in the next couple of months/years - 6 second video ads, 15 second videos, videos made just for snap and Instagram. Since most of this content is consumed without sound and within a really short span of time, good motion templates definitely help! Are there any other features that you are working on, considering the direction video and AR is heading in?

      Thanks Sachin! We've not thought of AR experience yet. Certainly something for us to look into, real soon :). But first, we plan to build the collection to 2K so that it covers 80% of the use-cases out there.

    This is great! Have you guys thought about building a marketplace/maker program for designers and developers to contribute?
