Extra padding around your video helps give you enough space for captions, stickers, progress bars, and other elements to keep your viewers engaged. Subtitles on top of a video can cover important parts or even come off as distracting. When you position subtitles on top of a designated space, like an outline or outside frame, your viewers are more likely to be familiar with this format. After all, TV and film captions are formatted this way.
Pick from several video border options to add padding on all sides of your video. With every click, your border gets thicker. Change your background to any color (white, black, red, and more) to set an aesthetic feel or use canvas blur to match the same color scheme as your video.
First, upload your video from your device or by pasting a video URL link.
Add padding to video from the right-hand sidebar. Choose to add a border on one or every side and select a color to fill in.
Export your video with borders and download a file to keep or upload anywhere.
Too many times, adding a simple border makes the video lower quality than its original resolution. With other video editors, borders, frames, and padding can sometimes be added on as another layer, causing the quality of the video to decrease.
With Kapwing, you are in full control of your video from start to finish. Set the high resolution you want for your video, and add as many borders or as thick of a border as you’d like. Use the color picker tool or canvas blur to add color and gradient to your border.
This is perfect for social media posts, generated subtitles, captions, or frames. The Internet is full of videos, photos, and GIFs of relatively the same size and dimensions (9:16 or 1:1). Even though platforms require your media files to fit this specific size to post, you can use a border to outline your content, making it look a different size. This makes your content stand out from any others. Now you’ve got eyes on your video.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
