I am using the blender cycles render as png or jpg in first step and than I add these images to create a movie. It will help render in parts for me.

I want to add the text in the video that always facing to the camera, like a subtitle.

I tried to add the text and align it to the camera but result is not very good like this

Is there a way to add such text? Thanks in advance!

  • $\begingroup$ You can use a "copy rotation" constraint on any object, target to the camera $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ There is a typo in your video. The color is "grey", not "gray". $\endgroup$

  1. Setup a new Scene for text.
  2. Select the Camera and change it to Orthographic.

    Properties > Data(Camera icon) > Lens > Orthographic

Options for no perspective and Scale

  1. Reset Camera Location (Alt+G) and Rotation (Alt+R).
  2. Move Camera along Z-axis till it is above 0.
  3. Text Object can be place on the X-Y plan as you like.

To combine the animation and text, crate another new Scene and import the 2 Scenes into VSE.

I know this is an old question but another way of achieving can be just making the text a child of the camera, so wherever the camera rotates the text will always face the camera.

Though, a 2nd step would be needed to make the text render on top of all other objects for cases where they come between the camera and the text.
