How to Use Animated Captions to Get More Views on Social Media
If you spend much time on social media watching videos made by other content creators, you’ve probably seen at least a few with captions like this ⬇️
Have you ever watched a video like that and wondered how these creators are making these types of videos? Maybe you’ve assumed that they’re using an expensive software or employing a team of impressive editors to produce they’re content. And some of them probably are. But here’s the great news: we’ve created a way for you to make videos with animated captions just by clicking one button.
Animated captions are so useful when it comes to expanding your reach on social media and getting more views. They’re immediately attention-grabbing, making your audience more likely to slam the brakes on their quick-scrolling and notice your content.
Animated captions can get your videos more views and engagement (compared to standard subtitles), help your viewers follow along with the video more easily (which increases watch times), and help you stand out from the ever-increasing crowd on social media AND look like a pro (without a fancy editing team).
Want to use animated captions to get more views on social media? Just follow the easy steps below!
Just click the yellow Add New Video button on the right-hand side of the screen. In just a few seconds, our state-of-the-art software will generate automated captions for your video!
3. Go to the Text Motion menu
As soon as the video is uploaded, you’ll be automatically navigated to the Text Editor menu where you can view and edit your captions and headline. If you look at the menu on the right-hand side of the screen, you’ll see the Text Motion menu.
4. Animate your captions
Once you’ve clicked on the Text Motion menu, you’ll see a dropdown menu with two options for caption animation styles. The Appear option animates your captions to show up one after the other as you speak each word.
OR you can choose the Highlight option, which adds a pop of color to each word, allowing you to customize both the Text and Fill colors. Whichever option you choose, you can preview the animation styles in real-time as you edit.
5. Render your video
Once you’re happy with your animated captions, just resize your video for the platform you’ve chosen and it’s ready for download!
Pro tip: Don’t forget to use our Duplicate feature so you can easily resize and repurpose your content for other platforms!
