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. Try it as an alternative to iMovie or Windows Movie Maker.

Kapwing Studio supports many different file types including MP4, MOV, AVI, 3GP, and many more. Creators can record video clips, add voice overs, and search for images from inside the Studio. The videos can be edited directly in the browser from any device. When the video preview looks correct, click “Export” to create the final video. Download the MP4 file, publish the video on social media, or share the link with your friends.

Kapwing is great for various reasons. There's a lot of features for both images and video, all of which are extremely easy to use. I also like that the Kapwing staff responds quickly to user feedback and input.
