How do I change the position of my closed captions? 

Being able to reposition your captions/subtitles can often be essential to the way your video is received by your audience. 


To change the position of your captions:

  1. Click on the file name from your My Files page to open the captions in the Rev Editor
  2. Drag and drop the captions to the relative top or bottom thirds of your video.
  3. Once you are done editing the captions, download a new copy of your captions file.

Positional changes will only reflect in file formats that support top and bottom positioning (SCC, MCC, TTML, DFXP, XML, VTT, STL, or CAP). The SRT file format does not honor positioning data.


If you added burned-in captions to your order, you can reposition the captions by following the steps in this article.
