    Using Kapwing, you can enhance your video by adding a variety of elements, from text to shapes, to image overlays and audio layers. The possibilities are endless when it comes to using Kapwing to make a video.

Making a video online

Making a video shouldn't be as hard as it is. Kapwing's online, modern tools simplify this process and make it possible to make a video in just a few clicks. But, if you're looking for more functionality, the process doesn't just end there. Kapwing can support your workflow from day 1 to day 1000, and help you make every type of video - from very simple clips to full resolution feature films.

In just a few clicks, Kapwing allows creators to make TikTok content from Youtube videos, or turn horiztonal videos into vertical ones for platforms like Youtube Shorts or Instagram Reels. Make short or long videos, or use Kapwing's repurposing tools to optimize your content for every audience.

Kapwing's video maker also lets creators supercharge their workflows with smart, artificial intelligence powered features like Smart Cut, Remove Background Noise, and much more. Take your video making to the next level and make videos 10x faster than ever before - that's how Kapwing can change your workflow.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking
How can I make online video?
You can make online video by searching for and finding a tool that will allow you to create videos in the browser. Online video makers can be better than traditional video editing software as they allow you to create without any additional installations or complicated downloads. However, one possible drawback is that the process of making an online video is often not as powerful or robust as a traditional editing setup.
What is the best website to make videos?
The best website to make videos is one that fits best for your content needs. You want to choose a video making website that can best support the content workflow that you have and works to your own benefit. Every website that supports making videos has its own pros and cons. Some have more functionality but are less beginner friendly. Others are more focused on beginners, but may not support all the features you might need for the video content that you want to make. Make sure to try different options before committing to one!
How do I make a video on my computer?
The first step to making videos on your computer is to decide if you want to make a video within your browser, or with locally installable software. Some computers, like Macs, come with preinstalled video making software like iMovie. Other operating systems like Windows have legacy video editing software that may come preinstalled that will allow you to make simple edits like trimming a video. If you choose a browser based option, an online video maker will allow you to make videos on your computer without having to download an executable file.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
