I'm totally new to Youtube and wondered if any of you use fancy graphics etc in your videos? If so,where do you get them?

Ideally I'd like to add my channel name in a nice font to my vids, but I'm not sure how

Any help greatly appreciated

Are your referring to having a watermark on your video? YouTube has the option under branding. I have mine set to pop up about 35 seconds into the video.

Some folks put there watermark on the footage before they upload. This is better because if someone rips the video file, then you mark is still there on the footage.

I keep the same text font and colour for my titles and added comments, as a kind of brand. It's easy to overlay with Adobe Premier.
I also use MS paint and getting to grips with MS paint3D to do the odd graphic bit.
Most images can be found on the interweb.

Ahh got ya, that is pretty easy to do. You can do it using the PIP function of your editor, so create your video, then use a jpeg with the writing or logo you want to add and put that on the timeline as a PIP, you can move it where you want and make it the size etc that works best. If you want a transparent image or writing, then that gets a little more complicated, but not much, you just need to turn the jpeg into a png file with a transparent background. I use The GIMP which is a free graphics editing suite and not too hard to learn. Do you already have a logo? If you send me a copy of it I can turn it into a .png for you possibly

I don't have one yet, it's the making it I'm trying todo.

Just had a mess about in paint and think I can knock up something. I'll check out GIMP though,cheers

I was going to say if it's Adobe Premier Pro your using its easy, just create the text as a legacy title then add to your timeline in a different sequence line to any other footage etc so nothing interrupts it.

Interested to see what you come up with.

Might have to check out GIMP, not just because of the risky humour of putting gimp graphic into Google search but also to see what it can offer.

Like HRMV said, in Premiere the legacy titles are good, and if you want animated graphics switch to the Graphics mode for the User Interface and browse through the motion graphic templates on the sidebar on the right. You can also use a number of downloadable motion graphics templates for Premiere on these sites:
