Step 1 - Sign Up

Head over to Submagic and sign up.

For a limited time Submagic are offering a FREE trial so you can try before you commit.

The Basic plan (monthly) gets you 20 videos per month for only $20.

Trust me when I say: When you see how much time Submagic saves in video editing and manually adding captions, $1 per video is excellent value.

The basic monthly plan was enough for me but you plan on doing more than 20 videos per month, the Growth Plan has unlimited uploads, which is an excellent deal as well.

Step 2 - Upload Your Video File

Let's get into the fun stuff - it's a game changer.

Drag and drop your video content into Submagic to get started with the upload.

Once the video file uploads, Submagic's artificial intelligence wastes no time and begins transcribing audio straight away.

Step 3 - Tweak Your Captions

I'm not lying when I say, I'm really impressed with the captioning process.

Straight outta the box, Submagic's AI intelligently highlighted keywords and generated accurate captions with relevant emojis. βœ…

There were a few minor changes I made to the words but that was the only changes needed to the subtitle animations!

To give you an example, at one point the AI mistook the word 'Elon' for 'long'... but that could have been my muffled voice's fault! 🀣

From there, I played around with the 8 available caption styles.

I was tossing up between Hormozi and Devin style but ended up going with 'Hormozi2' captions.

It's at this time you can use the AI tools to tweak the caption colors, size, and Y position too.

Step 4 - Save and Export

We're done already! Save your project and click export.

Video editors reading this should know how simple this is compared to manually creating captions in Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve.

The export process will take a minute or two and Submagic automatically sends you an email when the process is complete - super handy.

And here's the finished YouTube short with Submagic captions. πŸ‘‡

You can see how these captions emphasize key points and would increase viewer engagement!

The Verdict on Submagic

Submagic is a top choice for artificial intelligence generated captions that feature automatic emojis and premium B-roll.

The tool offers multiple caption styles for your video content and simple editing features.

While it's excellent for short-form content creation, those with videos longer than 120 seconds will need the Growth or Business plans.

Ideal if you're a content creator on Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok and are aiming to boost viewer engagement.

As someone who previously spent hours manually adding captions in Premiere Pro, I can confidently say that Submagic is the best AI caption generator in 2024.

It took me less the 5 minutes to upload my video, make a few tweaks, and export the final take complete with intelligently highlighted keywords and automatically generated emojis. 🀯

If I wanted to create captions with perfect emojis and highlighted keywords like the ones Submagic generated in just a few clicks, it would have seriously taken me a few hours in Premiere Pro.

Submagic are constantly innovating and have recently announced the addition of Animated Emojis, GIFs and images, custom B-rolls, and new trending subtitle templates to choose from saving massive amounts of time.

For content creators looking to save a massive amount of time, increase viewer engagement, and automatically create world class captions in literal seconds, Submagic is a no brainer.
