Edit videos 10x faster

Editing a video can take hours, and the first stage is often the most tedious. You examine each second of your footage and repeatedly click and split to cut out the silences and end up with a set of refined clips. But what if technology could do this for you? Kapwing's Smart Cut tool automates your video editing process by detecting and removing silences from your video in a matter of seconds. You'll be saving hours of editing time and completing your rough cut faster than ever for talking head videos, recorded presentations, tutorials, vlogs, and more. Editing has never been so seamless.

You're in control
Adjust silence sensitivity at multiple levels of granularity to make sure that you are cutting out white noise, silence, and background sounds, but not your voice. Let your content shine through and keep your viewers engaged throughout your whole video.
Streamline your workflow
With a powerful non-linear video editing timeline, the shortcuts from Smart Cut don't stop at silence removal. You can still adjust the trimmed clips of your video, and then take advantage of everything else available in Kapwing - adding text, effects, audio, and much more. And once you're finished, just click a single button and your video will be exported, completely online.
