How to get those little cool captions on videos?!

Published by


It’s a lot easier than you might think – here’s a short blog post covering how to do it like the screenshot below.

Spoiler alert – I’m using Descript and once you record your video you can load it into descript and it’ll transcribe the video for you.

Then you add Fancy Captions which brings the transcript over the video and you can change the font, and clicking the settings next to Captions you can control how the active word shows up

It really is a lot easier than you think, simply:-

  • Film your content
  • Load the video into descript
  • Add fancy captions
  • Play around with size and style


If you really want to, perhaps for an instagram story, you can export only the captions by deleting the video clip and still using the fancy captions – like below.
