Call-out and popup animations are an effective solution for emphasizing a specific element in a video. This technique is seen mostly in real estate and product videos, where the call-out title can direct the viewer's attention to a particular feature. DaVinci Resolve 17 offers built-in simple call-out titles, but these are underwhelming in terms of aesthetics. If you want to really make your video stand out from the rest, try designing your own callout animation, or better yet, use a template made by a professional!
With the importance of Call-Out titles, we've curated this list of some of the best looking callout templates specifically for DaVinci Resolve 17 & 18. Many of these project files are available for free with an Envato Elements free trial, but some others will have a small fee (if hosted on VideoHive). All of these Call-Outs are customizable and are updated frequently to match new editing style trends and techniques.

DaVinci Resolve comes with a basic built-in callout title that can be used as a starting point for designing your own call-outs for your videos. By following the steps below, you can easily track this simple callout (or one from a template listed above) to attach itself to a specific object in your video. To follow along with this tutorial, you must already have some basic experience working with media layers, keyframes and text in DaVinci Resolve 17 or above.
On the Edit page of DaVinci Resolve, you can find the Call-Out Title under the Titles category in the Effects window. Simply drag the title onto your footage in the timeline to add it to your project. To customize the appearance of the call-out title, adjust the Text, Font, Style, Color, and Position settings under the Title and Settings options in the Inspector panel.
If you need to track the call-out to a moving object in your video, right-click on the call-out title and convert it into a New Compound Clip. Next, select both the compound clip and the clip you want to track, and create a New Fusion Clip by right-clicking and selecting the option from the pop-up menu.
On the Fusion page, make sure to name the media nodes correctly to keep everything organized. Add the Tracker to your video clip by right-clicking and selecting it from the Select Tool pop-up window. Place the tracker point on the object that you want to track for the call-out to follow, then press Track Forward.
Change the tracker Operation to Match Move, and connect the Call-out node to the Tracker node. This will allow the call-out title to follow the tracked movement of the object. Finally, use a Transform node to adjust the position of the call-out title to match the object, and you're all set.
Here are 5 of the most commonly asked questions related to adding and creating callouts from scratch or templates in DaVinci Resolve 17 and 18.
