Kapwing is a free online video editor. Simple enough to learn without tutorials, yet powerful enough to support full creator workflows, Kapwing offers a robust video editing solution for every creator. Kapwing is a non-linear editor, meaning that video clips can be rearranged, appended, trimmed, and much more on a single timeline.
Within Kapwing, creators can splice and combine video clips, trim and cut inline, add transitions, overlay text and images, generate subtitles, and upload music. On the canvas, adjust the position and layout of your video and add special effects to make eye-catching and shareable videos. Add in audio, mix tracks, and import from YouTube to let your creativity shine.
Upload your original video footage to Kapwing's advanced media library. Media library will convert and optimize your uploads and serve as an easy area for organizing all your clips. Once you're ready to assemble your video, drag and drop clips to the timeline or canvas.
Using the timeline, trim and split clips until you have highlighted the key parts of your footage. Append these clips together to assemble your full story. Add text, audio, animations, and any other elements that you need to make your video stand out.
Once you're done, hit the green "Export" button and your final video will be generated in just a few seconds. Unlike other video editors, Kapwing works completely online for free. Download your final video and share it on your favorite social media platform.
