Tags: check. Categories: check. But how many different kinds of videos are there on IntroCave?
As I create more video templates for IntroCave, I'm starting to see patterns. Though I primarily build intro videos (IntroCave is an intro maker, after all!), there are a few other types of videos on the site. Moving forward, you'll see more consistent titles to help you find the type of video you're looking for:
- TEMPLATE Logo - A logo reveal.
- TEMPLATE Text - A single text title reveal (a text equivalent of a logo reveal).
- TEMPLATE Titles - A sequence of text titles. The current titles on the site are anywhere from 4-10 texts, but I'm going to shoot for around 5 going forward.
- TEMPLATE Hybrid - A hybrid of Titles and Logo. These templates will typically have 2-3 text titles followed by a logo.
- TEMPLATE Gallery - A template featuring full-size images, typically closed with a logo.
There's still room for fuzziness within all of these videos. Sometimes the logo reveals have subtitles, sometimes they don't. The Epic Fantasy Titles below are the first title sequence on IntroCave where the titles have subtitles (I think). There are other types of videos (ads, lower thirds, quotes), but these are the 5 that I'm going to be most focused on with IntroCave. If I can continue to add 4-8 videos per month, having consistent naming will be helpful!
I was pulling some stats for the August newsletter and was actually kind of floored. In July, IntroCave rendered over 80,000 preview videos (not counting the ones sent through the new system). That's over 200 hours of preview videos!
I continue to make good progress on the new render servers. I've got about 50% of the preview videos flowing through the new setup, and the early results are very promising. Most video templates are rendering in about half the time, and I firmly believe that preview render time has a direct impact on conversion rates.
