Capture people’s attention the second they lay their eyes on your content. The last thing you want is for people to scroll past the video you spent hours creating and editing. In just a few clicks, Kapwing’s Magic Subtitles tool adds animated subtitles on your videos so they’re more engaging and accessible. The editor allows you to customize and add effects to make the subtitles pop up or fade in, then burn subtitles into the video directly so the captions appear anywhere the video gets shared to. It’s a win-win for everyone: viewers find your content entertaining and you get your message across.
Let us do the work for you. Magic Subtitles simplifies the process of creating captions by using AI to auto-generate the video transcript, then animating the subtitles with a single click. Choose from a range of trending social media text styles or customize them to stay on-brand with your own colors and fonts. Edit the rest of the video in our full-fledged video editor, then share it on social media, podcasting platforms, landing pages, or anywhere else.
Upload a video directly to Kapwing from your computer or mobile device. You can also paste a link to a video. This will be the video that will be subtitled either manually or with an automatic API.
Use our AI tools to automatically transcribe your captions or add the text and time them yourself for maximum precision. Once the captions are written, adjust the start and end times to ensure they exactly match the speakers from the video.
Watch, download, and share your subtitled video on social media. Get ready for increased engagement due to the increased accessibility of your video!
With upwards of a billion videos supported by subtitles, it’s safe to say adding subtitles to videos is almost standard practice now. But how do we do that without having our phone crash when we’re editing or our computer using more storage after installing heavy video-editing software?
Never worry about having a strong enough computer to add subtitles, animated or not, to your video again. Use Kapwing's AI-powered Magic Subtitles tool to auto-generate subtitles and animate them directly online. Create subtitles automatically, then adjust the auto-generated subtitles so they’re perfectly matched to the audio in your video.
If you’d rather manually create your subtitles, you can. Simply listen to your video play and add text at the right moments to make your subtitles as accurate as possible. With Kapwing, you are in full control of your content.
Kapwing lets you adjust the text font, size, color, position, and background of your subtitles all in one place. You can move the subtitles anywhere on the video, or even resize your video so that the subtitles fit exactly where you need them.
Animate subtitles to create a word-by-word effect that’s common on social media and podcasting platforms like TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. Choose from various subtitle animations including color, reveal, highlight, and bounce.
Do you already have your subtitles handy in the form of a SRT file? Kapwing also supports adding SRT to the video! Just upload your SRT file and Kapwing will do the rest of the work to burn the subtitles directly into your video. It’s that easy.
Closed captioning is becoming more and more popular even for viewers who do not face challenges with hearing. Captions are important for today's viewers watching video on phones in crowded or outdoor places, where hearing the audio may not be convenient. The Kapwing subtitle editor allows you to add and edit captions that will appear on your video, wherever it gets posted. This subtitle video tool was designed to make content more accessible, engaging, and compelling no matter what kind of video you're making.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
