Thanks Damon,

I assumed the purpose of the end card was to link back to other videos, is that correct or should it be used for other items?

Just use the last 20 seconds. In fact I add 20 seconds of my logo on a black title card to every video so that the end cards don't interrupt the video.
This is a great idea as I get frustrated when videos put up end cards over the content they are showing!

I also agree just put it on the first video and keep it going so that way later when someone watches it the video will already be linking to your content!

Hi @The New Gardener

If you have some graphical skills I would suggest using a guide like this one to know where to put your elements. Use it as a guide on a background layer in your software and then create graphics around where you want your controls to end up. After that, you will create a 20 seconds video clip with that image at the end of your video.

In premiere that is easily done by just adding an image and changing the default duration for images to 20 seconds.

PS the end image should have the resolution 1920x1080 for 1080p. So depending on your material, this might change. But there is many templates available online if you do a quick search for one.

Hope this helps
Best regards
Daniel

You will have an option to add it while you are uploading the video or you can just add it from youtube studio
