Motion Tracking Video Editor

Pin objects to video using Kapwing’s motion tracking editor

Enhance videos with moving graphics

Making your video more cinematic or animated is complicated with traditional video editors. They often require downloading heavy-duty software and learning a multi-step process. On the flip side, Kapwing’s pinning feature helps you make videos more dynamic and take advantage of motion tracking technology in just a few clicks. You can pin text and images onto an object in the video to create moving labels, censor parts of a video, or add entertainment value to your project.

While platforms like Snapchat or Instagram let you pin stickers to video in the app, you can only use them on mobile. Kapwing’s motion tracking video editor works online on any device – no software downloads required. Regardless of how much video editing experience you have, anyone can use this motion tracking technology to pin stickers to video within seconds.
