Elevate your video with smooth transitions

Figuring out how to seamlessly combine multiple video clips can be complicated. This task is simplified when you add transitions between the clips to create one smooth, flowing experience for your audience. Use a fade transition to indicate time passing or a cross dissolve effect to transition into the next scene. With over 70 modern transitions to choose from in Kapwing, it's easy to make your videos look professional and keep viewers engaged.

[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!
