How can I change the appearance of the captions on my video?
If you've ordered the Burned-in Captions add-on service, you can customize the look of the captions on your video. Burned-in Captions Customization preferences can be found under Order Preferences > Caption Settings. When you edit your customization options, a customization modal will appear with the option to save those preferences to your account.
We offer the following customization options:
- Helvetica Neue
- Lucinda Grande
- Noto Sans
- Open Sans
- Times New Roman
Note for Subtitle Orders: Not all listed fonts are available in each language.
The font color palette will display three default color options: Black, White, and Yellow. It will also include a hex value input field for users who want a specific color.
The position of the text on your burned-in video can be adjusted to align to the top, middle, and bottom of your video. You'll also be able to justify the text to the left, center, or right of the video. Please note, the positional options will apply to all your captions and individual caption placement is not yet an option for our burned-in captions.
This short clip shows the various positional options:
- None (no background color)
- Outline (text is outlined in the selected color)
- Wrap (caption group has a container in the selected color)
The background color palette will display three default color options: Black, White, and Grey. It will also include a hex value input field.
The default settings for Rev’s open captions and subtitles are Noto Sans. The font will be white with 50% opacity black wrapped background, and the size will be determined by the dimensions of your video.
