New Customization Options

IntroCave Updates

Customize all the things! Well, some of the things you couldn't customize before.

New Customization Options

It would be a tiny bit of HYPERBOLE to say that I added 13 NEW VIDEO TEMPLATES to the site this month, but customization abounds! Of the 9 ACTUAL NEW TEMPLATES that I added this month:

  • Two templates have customizable colors (although I don't claim that as 16 million variations).
  • One template has a new option to choose between keeping your logo colors unaltered or going for a liquid Silver/Gold treatment.
  • Two templates feature 3 font choices to help dial in the look you want.

Custom color options are nothing new (note to self: I still really need to add a text field for color purists who want an exact hex color), but the second two are more interesting. I could regale you with tales of nested data structures and the clever bit of code that passes your choices to the render server, but you can expect more weird customization options in the future that are a little more complicated than toggling 3-way switches or changing fonts. Now that I have the power, I just need to figure out some more good applications!

New Intro Video Templates (September 2020)

Fun Fact: most of the code below was written by robots! Well, that's maybe too generous. "Algorithms" is a bit more accurate. I've been painstakingly typing all this out by hand for months, but this month I decided enough was enough. New templates are structured data, after all, and computers are GREAT at spitting out structured data. I still need to write a little script to edit all the videos together, but progress is progress!

Cosmic Arena Logo

The Cosmic Text intro has been doing great, so I added another template with a similar style. This is the logo version.

Dark Luxury Logo

I liked this liquid gold logo template, but I also like my logo colors. NEW FEATURE: choose which version you want!

Dark Luxury Gold Text

I also really liked the gold text, but I couldn't choose a font. NEW FEATURE: choose which version you want!

Dark Luxury Silver Text

Same story, now in silver. I could've added another silver/gold choice, but I want to limit templates to one custom feature for now.

Abstract Spiral Logo

This abstract spiral can be tinted to any color of your choice!

Cloth Reveal Logo

Customizations abound! Choose the fabric color and background color in this simple logo reveal.

Desert Sands - Hybrid

This hybrid template is inspired by DUNE, but it's built to be generically desert-themed.

Desert Sands - Titles

This title template has lots of SAND but no IMAGES required!

it me

IntroCave is a one-person-show operated by Will Hankinson, but it's not 100% accurate to say every word is written by me. Some articles were live on the site when I took over. I hire writers from time to time to work on specific articles. People keep asking me to do guest posts, but I haven't actually seen any relevant submissions yet. "IntroCave staff" might make a better by-line, but currently that's just me. I've been building digital things for 10+ years now, and some of my favorite projects are posted over at my personal website if you want to take a look!
