Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

Am I able to edit AI-generated video?

Yes, although that depends on the tool you're using. Every AI-generated video made with Kapwing can be edited directly inside our web-based editor. The full editing suite is available whether a human made your video, or AI had a helping hand. Other text to video tools may generate a final video without the ability to change anything, however.

Is it free to turn text into video with Kapwing?

Yes, Kapwing's text-to-video converter is free to get started. After you've reached your monthly limit of AI-generated videos, you can explore pricing for our Pro plan to unlock more credits. 

Which AI tool converts text to video?

Sora (by OpenAI), Runway, and Veo (by Google) are video generators, but they are not yet accessible to the public. However, there are several AI tools - including Kapwing - which generate a video from a text prompt by synthesizing a voiceover layer and pulling videos from across the internet to match the timing of the AI voice. This enables you to convert an existing text document, like a script, into a video automatically. Kapwing's AI Video Generator is free to try.

How can I convert a script into video using AI?

There are a number of tools that convert text into professional videos. Kapwing is able to transform Word, PDF, and other text documents into short video summaries that include clips, music, transitions, and subtitles. Other tools like RunwayML and Synthesia can generate visual-to-video footage with a text prompt and a reference image or human-like AI avatars.

What is the best text to video converter?

The "best" tool depends on your needs. We recommend Kapwing's text to video AI converter because you can get started for free. After you've turned your text into video, Kapwing also lets you edit the video directly right from your browser.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
