How to Add Captions to Videos (‘Bake-in’ Subtitles for Instagram Videos!)
Want to learn how to make those Facebook or Instagram caption videos, where the subtitles are INSIDE the video? You know the ones… with those obligatory bars at the top and bottom of the video with a fancy bright color to get attention?
While it may LOOK simple, it’s not as easy as just adding text to videos… Because you’re dealing with subtitles that change every second or two, with the wrong approach you could spend hours manually syncing up the video and audio.
We released a tutorial a while back showing how to do it, but there’s now a ton of new tools and software that make the job MUCH easier!
In this UPDATED video we cover the easiest ways we’ve found to add captions to Instagram videos, Facebook videos… ANY videos (!), and ‘bake-in’ subtitles easy and fast, no matter which device you’re using.
