Movavi Video Editor makes adding subtitles to a video extremely easy. This robust video-editing software allows you to make your words pop with animated title presets. Simply pick the style you like, enter your text, and voilà – your words look gorgeous! Add funny comments, locations, price tags, names, and whatever else you’re up to. Follow the instructions below to do it all in just a few steps.

Step 1. Download and install the program

Use the buttons below to download Movavi Video Editor. Launch the installer and follow the on-screen instructions. After you finish the installation, launch the software.

Step 2. Add the video to the program

Click Add Files in the File import tab, locate the video files you want to add, and click Open. Those files will be added to Project files. Drag and drop your videos onto the Timeline.

Step 3. Add titles to the video

Click the Titles tab on the left to access the list of available caption styles to use as subtitles. To decide which title styles suit you best, you can click their icons to preview them in the media player window. Once you’ve chosen the desired style, simply drag it to the Timeline. You can move the subtitles around the Timeline until they’re in the desired positions.

Step 4. Edit the titles

To enter the editing mode, double-click a title or a sticker on the timeline. Now you can adjust your caption or sticker by opening the Text tab to select the desired font and specify the text size, appearance, and alignment. To enter your text, delete the sample from the preview window and type or paste your own message. Use the Clip tab to adjust the duration and speed of the animation. Use the instruments in the Motion tab to attach titles to a moving object in the video. To apply the changes, click Apply in the upper-right corner of the program interface.

Step 5. Save your video

Click Export and select the desired output format from the list on the left. If you want to play a video on a mobile device, select the appropriate tab and use one of the presets. Click Start to save the result.
