To automatically add subtitles to your videos, start by creating a template. This template will serve as the design for your videos. You can use the editor to customize the style, position, and animation of the subtitles to your liking. There are also ready-made templates with social media-style subtitles to choose from.
However, Creatomate goes beyond just adding subtitles to your videos. You can also automate advanced video editing tasks like adding outros, overlays, merging clips, and more. Be sure to explore the template editor and our tutorials to discover how you can automate even more of your social media marketing.
After designing your videos, it's time to automate the process. The easiest way is to use a no-code automation platform like Zapier, Make (Integromat), or Pabbly. These platforms let you build customized workflows using thousands of apps, including Creatomate. For example, you can automatically transcribe video files from Google Drive or Airtable, and then post the subtitled versions on social media platforms like YouTube, Instagram, or TikTok. Follow this guide to learn how to do that with Zapier. If you prefer another no-code solution, the principles are the same.
Whether you prefer using code or a no-code platform, setting up an automated workflow to transcribe videos and add subtitles is straightforward. Once it's running, there's no need to manually generate captions for your videos – automation takes care of all that.
