Get long-form content out there as
short, social-ready clips
Tired of spending hours making clips from your long-form content? Just upload a video or paste a URL into Kapwing. Our Repurpose tool will create social-ready clips for you. To instantly customize them, pick your favorite style of animated subtitles and select the aspect ratio (we’ve got stored presets for different social platforms).

Repurpose content faster
without the learning curve
Making the most of your content is a major challenge—and not one that you should tackle alone. You’ve got Kapwing by your side to generate clips and highlights ready for any channel.
Pull out the best highlights in one click
You can also try our Find Highlights tool to auto-generate clips. This is great for sourcing raw footage and adding your own effects. Choose your favorite highlights and optimize them for anything from training to marketing and beyond. Plus, with our branded templates, it’s easy to save your favorite subtitles, transitions, and effects to speed up every editing workflow.
Auto-resize your video without cropping speakers out
When speakers are too far off to one side, it seems impossible to salvage the footage for social media posts. Good news. Now, you can resize videos with our Speaker Focus tool. From scene to scene, Kapwing hones in on active speakers so they’re never cropped out of view.
"Kapwing is incredibly intuitive. Many of our marketers were able to get on the platform and use it right away with little to no instruction."
