Intros and Outros are used on Scratch to begin/end a user's project, usually an animation. "Intro" comes from an abbreviation for "introduction". "Outro" is slang for the opposite. Users can create their own intros or outros, or have another user make them in the requests forum.
An intro is a short animation used in the beginning of a project, typically containing the username of the project creator, the profile picture or an OC belonging to the user, along with some sort of music. Despite that they can be seen in any kind of Scratch Project, it's more common in game and simulation projects.
An outro is an animation used to end a project. Often the animation is never-ending and will continue to loop long after the project ends. Outros many times contain flashing lights, spinning characters or logos, and music (usually some sort of up-beat or bass-boosted music); although there might be static outros where nothing moves in the outro. Outros seem to be the more common of the two. A common theme in outros are drawings/images of a star, a heart, a follow button, and a comment. These drawings indicate to the viewer that the creator is asking them to favorite the project, love the project, follow the creator of the project, and/or leave a comment.
