How to use call-outs in your videos! Call Them By their Names!


If you check out in wikipedia the expression “call-outs” this is what you will get : “In publishing, a call-out or callout is a short string of text connected by a line, arrow, or similar graphic to a feature of an illustration or technical drawing, and giving information about that feature. “, source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Callout


We still enjoy a good publication, digital or otherwise, but this is the era of video! Videos that you make for you or your clients! There are these special spots in a video that need this extra something to invite the audience's attention. What do you do? Who do you call?

Well, no one actually! You can do it on your own, it's super easy and 100% effective. You are going to use call-outs!


Super easy to use, just point and shout! You can use them both in After Effects and in Premiere Pro. The method is pretty much the same whether you're using MOGRTs in Premiere Pro or a call-outs pack in After Effects.
