Create a Simple Write-On Text Effect in Davinci Resolve 17

Revealing your intro text with a write-on effect is a popular and great way to add some interest to text in your videos. In Davinci Resolve 17 it is remarkably simple to achieve, so we will be looking at the basics and then jump into some advanced options to make it even smoother.

Part 1: Simple Write-On Text Effect Using Text+

We will start with a 1080p, 50 fps project, which is the same as our source footage in this case. Make sure you match your source footage.

  1. In the Edit page, drag your source clip onto the first track in the timeline. This can be any clip you would like to place a title on or you may already have some video edited.
  1. Now, from the Effects panel under Titles select Text+ and drag it onto the timeline above your source footage (Note: It must be Text+ not just Text since the write-on effect is only available with text plus.).
  2. Set the Duration for your clip and text. You can either drag the clips to the length you want and let them snap in place or you can right-click on the clip/text+ and select clip duration then type in the value you want. We chose 5 seconds.
  3. Once you are happy with your clip and title length, you can start working on the title by clicking on the Text+ title in the timeline.
  4. With the Text+ title selected go to the Inspector window
  5. Type in your title in the text box and select your font from the dropdown menu while using all the text controls like size, tracking, line spacing, etc. to make your text look like you want it.
  6. At the bottom of the text controls, there is a slider named Write-On with two handles for Start and End plus a little keyframe button to the right with small arrows on either side.
  7. We will use these to create keyframes to animate our text.
  1. Go to the first frame (start) of your Text+ title.
  2. Now drag the right handle (end) of the Write-On effect to the left or type 0.0 into the End box. You will see your text disappear on the screen from right to left.

Note: Click the keyframe button to make it turn red, indicating a keyframe has been created and activating the automatic keyframe function. You won’t need to do this again.

  1. Move forward to the point on your clip where you want your title fully revealed. 25 frames is a good spot if you are unsure. Note: You can measure this out by tapping your right arrow key 25 times.
  2. Now take the right handle (end) of the Write-On effect and drag it all the way to the right. You will see your text is revealed from left to right and another keyframe has been created.
  3. Playback your clip to see the text revealed with a write-on effect.
  4. Now to make this even better we will reverse the process so the title finishes with a WriteOff effect in the opposite direction.
  5. To do this is equally simple. Move to the end of the clip and repeat the process in reverse, this time grabbing the lefthandle (start) and dragging it to the right or type 1 in the Start box.
  6. Now move 25 frames back or to where you want your title to start writing off.
  7. Drag the Left handle (start) of the Write On effect to the left or type 0 in the Start box.
  8. You’ve done it, playback your sequence to see your title write on and write off.


Start simple and practice. Focus on this one effect until you fully understand it before you try to combine multiple effects.

If you start getting weird behavior you can reset your entire title by clicking the reset button in the top right of the inspector window. Keep in mind this clears everything but it is often better to start from scratch if you have made a mistake somewhere.

Use the Render Cache function if your system is struggling to playback the animation in real-time, especially when using UHD or above footage.

Part 2: 3 Useful Write-On Text Effect Tips

1. Make your Title Transparent:

    can look nice and blend well with your background.
  1. With your Text+ title selected go to the Inspector and select Settings.
  2. Under Composite, you will see the Opacity slider. This slider controls how transparent your title is, simply slide it to your desired level, and for something more advanced you can even animate it in the same way as before by using keyframes.

2. Track Your Title to Your Clip

We won’t cover it here but tracking your title to move with the motion of your clip is a great way to add interest. This can be done in Fusion or the Color page but will take some advanced skills.

3. Use Title Templates

Motion Array has a wide range of title templates for Davinci Resolve. These templates come in packs with a bunch of useful titles that fit a certain style. They are a great way to get an advanced look for your project without the hassle of hours of extra animation work.

You still have the ability to customize the titles, like changing colors and fonts to match your project or maybe the style guide from your client. They are great for YouTube videos as well and save a ton of time.

The write-on text effect in Davinci Resolve 17 is actually reasonably simple to achieve by using the Text+ title and a few keyframes to animate the write-on and write-off effect. You may also add transparency to help your text blend well with your video.

As an advanced option, you could even track the text to the camera movement or an object in your video with the Fusion or Color page. However, for professionally made drag and drop titles, Motion Array has a wide range to choose from that can easily be customized to fit your project.

Detailed guide

1. Import your video to the project

Of course, the first thing you want to do is add your video to DaVinci Resolve. You can simply do that by pressing “Ctrl-I” to import media, or go to “File,” “Import File” and then “Import Media.”

2. Create a new timeline then add your video to it

You must create a new timeline to start working on a new project in DaVinci Resolve. You can either do that by:

  1. Going to the “File” menu, then create a new timeline
  2. By clicking on your video and choosing “Created New Timeline Using Selected Clips”. A prompt will open, and you will be able to create your new timeline.

3. Click the “Edit” panel button

You can easily switch between different panels by using the control panel at the bottom of the screen.

4. Open the “Effects” library & create your text

In the “Effects Library”, you will be able to see all kinds of effects you can apply to your video. Right now, we are interested in the “Title” effects.

Drag and drop the “Text” effect on top of your video.

5. Choose the text settings such as Font, Size etc.

After you add the effect, it’s time to customize the text you’re adding. You can change everything, from the text to its size and color, to the background if you want it to have a background and its position.

In DaVinci Resolve, just like Premiere Pro, you can play with the keyframes and create something unique. For example, while making this tutorial, I added a zoom and fade effect on the text, so as the video plays, the text zooms in on the screen and disappears.

6. Create keyframes for your text to add animation

You will need to click on the small diamond-shaped button under the video to see your keyframes.

How to Add Text in DaVinci Resolve and Create Title Effects

Texts are very important elements when it comes to video editing. It helps deliver the content of your video in a way that your audience understands best. Aside from stunning visual effects and fantastic sound design, adding visually appealing texts to your edit takes your video to the next level as well.

There’s a saying that goes, everyone can be a singer, but not everyone is a great singer. In this same analogy, be one of the greatest video editors to exist starting by working with Davinci Resolve’s Text Settings and the revolutionary Fusion feature!

To give an overview, Davinci Resolve’s Fusion feature allows you to create amazing animated titles with 2D and 3D text tools. You get traditional text formatting controls along with 3D extrusion, the ability to add reflections, bump maps, shadows, and more. You can also use the follower tool to animate individual characters so they fly on and off, ripple glow effects through each letter, and more. With Fusion, the possibilities are endless!

However, let’s take things slow and talk about the basics.

Standard Titles

What’s great about Davinci Resolve is you can start with the absolute easiest type of title — literally with a few steps and a few clicks — and take that title really to the next level. You could create 3D text extrusions, backgrounds, and many more similar effects like that, and it’s all very fluid and intuitive.

But if you’re starting slow and want the simple things first, Davinci Resolve has Standard Texts which you can adjust and alter according to your liking and to the look that you want to achieve.

  • Start by navigating over to the Effects Library, at the top left corner of your workspace, besides Media Pool.

  • Then, navigate over to Toolbox, and come down to Titles.

  • As you can see, there are 3 main categories that pops up right after selecting Titles. These are Titles, FusionTitles, and Subtitles, if you scroll down to the last.

The Titles category contains standard text titles that are built-in in Davinci Resolve. They have presets already placed and you can edit them the way that you want them to be. They are basically drag-and-drop titles that you can work with just a drag and drop of the mouse. You’ll notice that it drags and drops, much like a clip drag and drop from the media pool.

Before we tackle about putting clips and altering them, I’d first like to point out the fact that there are two texts named Text and Text+. As you’ve noticed, the Text is signified by the T icon and the Text+ is identified with the lightning bolt icon.

The reason for this is that Text with the icon T has standard, normal settings and Text+ with the lightning bolt icon has more advanced and more complex settings, which we can find in Inspector. It will help us differentiate the two.

Standard Text

  • In order to edit your title, simply select the preset that you want and drag it down to your timeline. You can place it directly on top of your clip if you want to or place it right beside your clip. Here, I am using the standard Text (T).
  • Then, let’s navigate to Inspector, found at the top right panel beside Metadata. As you can see, there are a lot of options and tools that we can work around with — everything from color, size, and so on and so forth.
  • We also have the ability to change the font style and set them to be upper or lower case (to name a few) in the Font Case tab.
  • We also have other options in here as well, like Drop shadow, Stroke and Background. This allows us to have a lot versatility inside of the Standard Text tool, inside of Davinci Resolve.

One thing thats also cool is the fact that when you hover over the Color option, you are immediately given the RGB color value by the pop up. That feature is very super helpful and very handy if you want to try and figure out what the color is, very quickly.

Safe Area

One thing that is also very useful in working with your text/s is turning on Safe Area. What this feature does is create borders around your video, so you can identify which places are safe to put your texts.

  • All you have to do is navigate to View on the top of your workspace, in between Mark and Playback, and find Safe Area.

  • This is what your edit will look like if you turn Safe Area on.

The Text+ works similarly to the standard text (T), in a way that you can drag it or drop it down to your timeline.

  • The Text+ is a little bit different. If you navigate to Inspector, you can see that we have access to a lot more parameters than we did inside of the standard text (T) tool.

We even have the ability to write on our text if we want to. We can come down to some advanced controls as well.

What’s more important is we can adjust and come in and start adjusting things like layout, etc., and even get in and add transformation to specific characters as well.

These features are what made Text+ much more advanced and more complex than the standard text (T) tool.

Take your work to the next level by taking your text to Fusion!

Another cool feature in Davinci Resolve is Fusion, as we’ve introduced earlier in this topic. We can immediately add these texts in Fusion and add cool effects such as blur, adjust its brightness and contrast, and many more.

  • We can work our texts in Fusion, for example, by simply selecting the blur icon at the center bar with a number of icons. You can adjust its settings at the top right corner of your workspace.
  • When you go back to the edit page, the changes will automatically update.
  • As you’ve noticed, there’s no blur option added in the Inspector once you go back to the Edit page. This is because any changes made in Fusion can only be edited in Fusion. You can always have the option to manually adjust the blur option back to the Fusion page.

That’s everything about the difference in standard Text (T) and Text+. If your video doesn’t need a lot of complicated and complex texts or titles, I recommend using standard text (T). Despite using simple, less complex texts, it can be very effective if it suits the look that you want to achieve. But, if you want to spice things up and want to add more visually appealing text and titles, I recommend using Text+. You just need to familiarize these settings, and it’s only a matter of time before you become a full-fledged video editor!

Fusion Titles

Another thing that I’d also like to point out when we navigated to the Titles page in our Toolbox under Effects Library, is the fact that among with Titles and Subtitles, there is also the category Fusion Titles.

Fusion Titles are basically titles that have been pre-made that ship with Davinci resolve which you can take, drop unto your projects and basically step into inspector and alter the way you need them. It works just the same with Standard Titles, but at the same time, quite different in a lot of ways.

Let’s find out why.

Let’s navigate back into the Toolbox and select Titles. Then, under Fusion Titles category, we can choose any one of the presets Davinci Resolve has in store. In this example, I selected 3D Title in A Box and dragged it and dropped it down to my timeline. Here’s what the title looks like:

Since we have the ability to hover to Inspector, we can have the title selected, and come down into the Main Text Controls and edit the content of your text. After you do so, it immediately renders, as signified by the blue line on top of the text. Really quick and super simple as well.

One thing that’s also very cool is that when we navigate back into the Inspector, not only do we have control over the type of font, etc., found in Main Text, but we also have the ability to edit Main and Back Lighting, Box Material and even Motion Blur Controls as well.

Literally with a drag of a mouse, we’ve taken this title and altered it from what it was:

To what it is now:

Not only do we have control over our timeline, we also, with it selected, have now the ability to now come in to Fusion and to actually see how this title was made.

You’ll notice that when we navigate over to the stack and double click on it, we can see all the nodes that make up this title.

One thing that’s also very cool about this is not only the fact that we can alter this title, but it also serves as a fantastic learning tool. This is a great way to take a look at animation and we can go in and reverse engineer it, to see exactly what went into making this title. With that, we can start taking things one step further by working with titles in Fusion.

I’d also like to add a very important matter that we should always remember when working with texts in Fusion. Since Standard Texts and Text+ are 2D elements, and Fusion Titles are 3D Elements, you won’t be able to add 3D effects if you decide to add one in a 2D text.

This is because, in the world of Davinci Resolve, 2D and 3D texts are whole different elements, thus, they have different processes as well.

Hopefully, with those in mind, you will be able to create visually stunning text designs with Davinci Resolve. Remember to be patient and allow yourself time to absorb and learn new things!
