Turn 1 video into 5 viral clips

What's the #1 way to get more out of your video content? Repurposing the best clips across every platform, of course. But editing down longer-form video into short, shareable clips is a hassle—and takes way too long to do.

Not anymore. With Kapwing's AI-powered video editor, you can find top highlights from your videos and turn them into shareable clips in seconds. Our tool quickly searches your video for highlights based on the length and topics you specify, then recommends multiple clips for you to review.

Once you've selected your clips, you can fine-tune them to perfection with AI subtitles, automatic resizing, effects and animations, and so much more. Optimize your clips for social and then export and share—it's really that easy.

How to find video highlights with AI

  1. Upload a video

    Upload or drag and drop your video footage into the editor. You can upload videos in any format and from any device, though note that the final video will export in MP4.

  2. Instantly find highlights

    Our AI-powered tool will search your footage for the most shareable clips automatically based on the length and topic you select. You'll have multiple clips available to preview before you decide which you'd like to keep.

  3. Finalize and export

    Make final edits to your clips to get them social-ready for your accounts. Then, just select "Export Project" to download your video—that's it, you're all set.

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

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!
