I'm now in a position to make high definition videos, and with a change in recording and editing software, I would like to hear some feedback on how to improve the intros for each TDM video. I've been criticized for having my intros solely nearly 1 minute of the title card before the actual gameplay footage starts. How can I best address this? Also, should I change describing TDM as a total conversion mod for Doom 3 in the descriptions?

How can I best address this?

 

By studying works of others and seeing what works best for you. Most YT channels I subscribe to have intros that are 3 to 10 seconds long, depending on its purpose. But there are other types of intros as well.

 

Channel logo only, 3 seconds:

 

Channel logo with bg sound, 5 seconds:

 

Logo and episode title with bg music, 10 seconds:

 

Intros with preface, variable length:
