Rev now offers burned-in captions (delivered as an MP4 video file) for an additional $0.30 per video minute. You may add this feature at checkout or add burned-in captions to a previous order.
Once your order has been completed, to review, customize, or reprocess your burned-in captions video, select your file from your My Files page. That should open it up in our Customer Editor.
If you then click on the download button, in the top right of the Customer Editor, you'll see a popup that has the SRT and Video file formats listed.
Remove the SRT file format so that only "Video" remains, then select the option to customize, and click next.
That will then take you to the burned-in captions customization options, as shown in the following video:
Once you're done making your changes, click on Generate Video to reprocess the burn-in.
The burned-in video will not be downloaded instantaneously like the other caption output formats; instead, you will be notified via email once your burned-in video is ready, which takes roughly one-fifth of the length of the video (i.e. a 10-minute video may take about 2 minutes to burn the captions in).
