Would like to hear how you guys have gone about creating titles for you videos.

Links to vids/examples appreciated.

For the last set of titles I did:

-Did the type in InDesign and saved it as a PDF
-Printed them out by forcing some higher-stock paper through my shitty desktop printer (caused some cool glitchy shit)
-Taped those to a white background
-Filmed them with my camera set to 480i
-Made them a negative image in post, and then experimented with color correction and keyframes.

Titles around 7:48 to the end.  I'm sure there are a lot of ways you could do it cleaner, you can definitely see the tape outlines and shit but I kinda like it that way.

For my last vid, I borrowed VERY heavily from one of my favorite movies title sequences.
Starts at 1:50:

next project will use practical effects, but I don't have it fully fleshed out yet.

@mostlyslappies, those are great! I've always been a fan of simple titles with subtle effects/animation, especially if it's practical effects, and I really love Bag of Suck and their approach to titles. One of the best ever in my opinion.

Damn that is a really cool way of doing titles. Good work

If you wanna do cool titles but can't be fucked paying for Adobe, I would recommend Blender. It's a free and super powerful 3D effects software blah blah blah but the main thing is, it's free. Hell it's been used in a lot of Hollywood movies too.
