Very useful tool to quickly transform your videos into shorts. Time saving and easy to use. Free version available. I recommend it.

Pros

Very easy to use, allows you to resize 16:9 format videos into short videos very quickly.
I like the fact that the visual can be easily seen again.

Cons

The picture quality is a bit worse than the original

Kapwing destroys video edits I'm making, something that looks like just technical glitches on the site.
In addition, the automatic subtitles do not work well at all - really bad. I prefer to type the subtitles in a free app instead of spending hours correcting subtitles (which doesn't work well either).

It's really rude to charge such a high amount for a site full of glitches like this. If your site is under construction, don't charge money for it or charge a nominal amount. Really angry and expecting compensation. I both paid, and wasted my time for nothing.

The never-ending glitches and bugs that simply destroy the work experience and cause that a website that was supposed to save me time, takes more time of my life than parallel applications.

Pros

There is a wide variety of animations and text formatting options. This is the main reason I subscribed to the site.

Cons

The never-ending glitches and bugs that simply destroy the work experience and cause that a website that was supposed to save me time, takes more time of my life than parallel applications.

Made putting subtitles on my unscripted lectures viable. Without this softwear, I would have really struggled to provide subtitles on lectures I'd recorded without a fully pre-written script.

Pros

I only used to subtitling functions.
The auto generation of subtitles was excellent. While it did need correcting (although it got mendelian randomization right first try), having each phrase already set up with timestamps and just having to adjust the exact words saved me so much time. It took me minutes to sort my subtitles for a 20 minute lecture, rather than hours.

Cons

It would have been useful to be able to download the subtitles in more formats - moodle only accepts vtt, and this only exports srt so I had to transform all the files. Trivial to do, but added another step unneeded in my work flow.

A brilliant content creation tool for social media that has a tonne of features available even in the free version.

Pros

Kapwing is an incredible tool for social media content creation, be it GIF's, images, videos, it has a suite of tools to create awesome looking content in minutes.

Cons

May take some time for absolute beginners to wrap their head around. Could do with a mini tutorial for new users.

Kapwing makes me look better at my job than I actually am.

Pros

There are so many things I can user Kapwing for - but I found it because I needed to resize videos for Instagram. After that, I just continued to find new ways I needed Kapwing. Always works, doesn't cost a ton of time or money, and more features keep coming.

Cons

My only complaint is limited mobile use, but it's clearly not the focus here.

Overall experience with Kapwing is very good. I feel great while using this software and editing the videos which I share on my online social media platforms. This software increases my productivity.

Pros

The element adding is very unique in Kapwing. I can easily add different shapes, emojis and waveforms to my video while editing which makes my video very much interesting. The video output is just amazing when it is edited with Kapwing.

Cons

There is nothing to dislike about Kapwing. A lot of editing options are available for editing videos. This makes my work easy.

I have been using it to edit my mom's tutorial videos and a few demonstration videos for my office presentations and seminars.
It is a user friendly tool, especially for the beginners.

Pros

You do not need to know the terminologies of video editing, all the options are available in layman language.
Processing time is less than many market leaders.
The list of options available is a lot longer that other competitors.

Cons

Pricing might be an issue for the beginners.
Trial version puts a 'Kapwing' watermark in the entire video and allows max 7 minutes of final exported video.

All you need in few clicks

A pleasant experience with a variety of tools to create, edit and make videos even for free subscribers. kapwing provides all social media influencers and Youtubers are looking for in few clicks; pre-built templates, stunning backgrouads, clean audio. kapwing is a secret weapon for users who want to export videos in very few minutes at a high quality.

Pros

Kapwing, though a cloud based platform, allows video creator and editor manage their videos in real time. It comes with a rich dashboard that allows you crop, add photoes or backgrounds and monitor your slides easily. It comes with a clean audio even for free subscriptions. Another important feature is its liability to third-party software, iMyFone, which helps enhance the quality of the photos and backgrounds.

Cons

The only little concern about Kapwing is the fact that it is glichy sometimes, a bit heavy to load if your Internet is slow! Free video are limited to less than 7 minutes, which is too short compared to "Clips Ai" which provide longer videos for free.

I love Kapwing!

Reviewed on 11/05/2023

Pros

I can quickly and easily make custom videos for a variety of platforms (TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, etc). There are TONS of templates, video clips, elements, etc. It helps my videos look professional. I have very little video experience, and yet I was able to pick up the ins and outs of Kapwing very quickly and easily.

Cons

I wish there were a few additional editing features - for example - controlling how long fades are (as opposed to picking "fast" or "slow"). I wish there were FX that would sync to my audio (like BeatLeap).

I spent 6 hours creating a video and a Kapwing bug, which they fully admit to, erased all my hard work. They offered me $5 for my troubles. Gee thanks. I bill out at $400 an hour, Kapwing. How do I send you my bill??I no longer trust this product and would advise anyone to consider other products, ESPECIALLY if you plan to create long videos.Sincerely, Disgusted Kapwing user

Pros

Great choice of stock images and videos.

Cons

Reliability. WARNING: Kapwing may delete hours of your work on a video, at random and without warning, like it did with me. They claim to have a "revision" system that can reload past versions in an emergency but it didn't work either.This thing has horribly coded saving system IMO, with inadequate redundancy.

I'm a huge fan of Kapwing for a variety of reasons. It's easy to use, it's intuitive, it's web-based, they're consistently coming up with ways to improve the product. It's really a phenomenal product and it's pro version is not prohibitively expensive either.

Pros

My favorite part of Kapwing is how easy it is to use and the large amount of things the software allows you to do without requiring you to download anything

Cons

I would love to see a cheaper pro option especially for nonprofits. I also think Kapwing struggles with larger video files and wish it could handle larger and longer videos a bit better.

I don't care to use anything else especially for subtitles. They friggin' auto-generate them! You can adjust it and all. Especially on TikTok with motivational content, that makes a huge difference instead of looking sloppy like everyone else. Get Kapwing and make it happen!

I am actually very disappointed. I am not one to write bad reviews, but their disregard for customer service just left a bad impression.

Pros

They have a few cool features for creating social media content. I Enjoyed there smart cut feature.

Cons

Very glitchy. Oftentimes, when you export the elements, will move around the screen. Even after reviewing and editing. It's not good for videos over 5 minutes; anything longer, moves too slowly. Also, I was a few hours late before the cancellation. They would not provide a refund or take responsibility for their glitchy software. This is even after I have donated 1 hour of a live video interview to give their company feedback on their software. I was on a trial, then worked with the software for a month before onboarding my entire team. Yet, no refund on a month that we were no longer going to use.
