Progress bars are perfect for giving your audience a preview of how long your video will be. Embedding a dynamic progress bar into your video increases engagement on social media sites like Instagram and Twitter.
Kapwing is an easy online tool that allows you to add a dynamic progress bar to the bottom of your video or GIF. Simply upload your video, click on Elements, and select Add progress bar. You'll be able to easily adjust the style, position, and color of your progress bar.
Upload or drag and drop your video to start a new project.
Open the “Elements” tab in the left sidebar and choose your favorite animated progress bar.
Finish editing your video and export it to share on any platform.
If you want viewers to get a visual sense of how long your video content is going to be without having to watch the entire video, a progress bar is a great element to add to keep viewers engaged through the entire duration of your video.
A progress bar that is burned directly into your video can also give viewers a sense of where they are in the total time of the video. This will encourage viewers to stick around until the end of the video if they see that they've already made a decent amount of progress while watching.
Kapwing is an easy, online video editor that allows you to add a progress bar to your videos, but also so much more. After you add a progress bar, you can also resize your video to the right dimensions, add text, subtitle your content, and a whole lot more.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
