EDIT: Please vote for your favorite logo now too or recommend changes I could make to them!

 

I just want to take a poll to see what intro everyone likes best. I have been told by numerous people that they think my intro is too long or cheesy or what not. I want to please my subscribers and fans so please help me choose a new intro by voting for your favorite one of the 3! Also, PLEASE feel free to comment with criticism or support! Both help me! 

 

Intro 1:

 

Intro 2:

 

Intro 3:

 

Intro 4: 

 

Into 5:

 

P.S. The "Animoto" symbol at the end will not be in the finalized intro so they will all be a few seconds shorter.

 

 

I found an awesome logo generator site and created these 3 logos pretty quickly.

 

Logo 1:

qh5ET0q.jpg

 

Logo 2:

Z2YJA4k.gif

 

Logo 3:

VrsAKyB.jpg

 

Please vote for your favorite one! I will be creating a VERY simply intro using one of these logos or if I get some recommended changes for them I will change it and use that.

my favorite is probably the second one. still a bit long though. i'd use that for videos over 5 minutes. but for shorter videos i like what mike did in some of his older videos. a little bit of music and just a few seconds of "Techpb" on the screen, first fading in and then out. quick, simple, and you know who you're watching.

I like Intro 2  :tup:  If you don't know what to do for your intro, maybe try checking out bigger paintball Youtuber's intros (PbN, TechPB, Hustle Paintball, etc.)

With things as short as Youtube videos, less is more when it comes to intros.

If I were to pick one, it would probably be number two. That being said, i think intros should be at most 5 seconds long. Here are some examples of intros done right.

 

 

 

 

I understand that you probably don't have the time nor resources to create this kind of intro. I'd help you if i weren't for the fact that i just started uni and is stuck on a laptop since i had to leave my beast rig at home. Whatever you do just don't have a 30 second long intro that forces you to skip the entire thing. 

 

Just my two cents.

They are all too long, as the others have said. 5 seconds max...

 

Here is one of my intros. 5 seconds exactly, You don't have to tell people that this is your youtube channel.. They already clicked it and know. Just put your branding up there front and center, with action around it, and maybe a little about what the video is about.

Ok, thanks everyone! I will try to experiment with some other software and maybe post some more options in the poll later!

 

Anyone have recommendations for free software or online sites?

how about you make one that says 

TECH PB JustinB

shooting videos (accompanied by clip from one of your shooting videos)

gameplay ( accompanied by a brief clip of you shooting someone in a game or maybe diving or sliding just something cool)

and more (with maybe a clip of you reviewing a marker)

all of these clips should have their original audio removed and then just play your intro song over them

I think that if you did it in this way then it would look much more professional as well as give people a small taste of what you are all about

Not a bad idea and I think its awesome! I would really like to do this idea but people seem to like a VERY short intro.

you could do it similar to the way team insanity did theirs with the short clips but then yours would have the words with it 

https://www.youtube....r/xXD4Rke4PeRXx

or the way it used to be before they created their new one

Not a fan of that one.  Bouncing your name up the screen seems a little over worked.  I'm not really a fan of crazy filters either.  

 

Can't you take some game footage and some review footage and splice that together under your "techpb justin b" ?

 

 

Here some guys that subbed to me:

 

 

His may be a little long but you know what his channel is all about.  (no one wants to watch 10 minutes of Vmax crap just stay for the intro)

 

 

 

The intro's for my game footage will have be something like this form now on.  A quick clip and someone getting shot with a flash of the paintball park and field.  I certainly didn't think my user name on youtube through.... was going to be a guitar amplifier and pedal channel....  so I don't feel like branding it with my user name.  

 

 

I am curious to see what others think of your 4th intro.  I might be out of touch and I certainly don't have the best either.  Just trying to give a few ideas.

You could always just make a logo for yourself and just fade that out like the intros that Carolus Rex posted.

Use logo 3, make it bigger, put it on a black background, play a catchy song in the background, and then fade it out into the video.

Bam! Perfect intro

Have you seen that vid where you hear shots and a marker airing up? You could use that a sure background music/sound. Or maybe but a video of you shooting and fade away.

Justin- you can make your logo a png and post it over a video clip of you in action. 

 

What editing SW are you using?

 

And Justin Bieber loads as related video's just so you know....lol

I am using movie maker and I know I can put the logo over a clip of me in action. Most people from my experience prefer a VERY simple intro so that's what I did.

I could proably get someone to do a photo manipulation for you or do logo, no promises. Also if youre looking for something better to edit vids with and you can bootleg after-effects and sonyvegas are great. You can use cinema 4d to make an intro also.  I like the 2nd and 3rd logos but thats just my perference/opinion.

Ok, I can't go that simple lol. The intro I have right now is literally my name and some music. That seems pretty simple to me and the only thing I would really be getting rid of is the music if I created an intro like the one you posted.
