Tiktok-style captions and subtitles
Make videos for Tiktok easily, automatically generating huge captions in the middle of the video frame..
Narakeet now makes it easy to change the position, size and font for closed captions and subtitles overlaid over your videos or images. This method of presenting closed captions is now dominant on Tiktok and becoming more popular on other social networks, especially for portrait-style announcement videos.

For an example of the new features in action, check out the video below. With Narakeet, you can programatically create Tiktok videos like the one below in minutes.
Making Tiktok-style videos with Powerpoint
If you use the Presentation to Video tool, to generate captions for Tiktok videos automatically use the new option in the subtitle configuration menu. After you upload the presentation, click “Edit settings”, the click the “Subtitle” box to see the new Tiktok closed captions setting.
Making Tiktok-style videos programatically
If you use our API or Markdown to Video tool to generate Tiktok videos, you can use the new subtitle
position settings, to use a custom TrueType font file and move the closed captions to the middle of the video frame. To generate Tiktok captions, use the
size property to increase the letter size, and the
break property to control word breaks and include just a few words on each subtitle.
Here is an example video header that sets the video frame size to the standard TikTok frame (1080p vertical), and configures the subtitles so they are displayed in the middle of the video frame, in a large custom font, only a few words per frame.
size: 1080x1920 subtitles: mode: overlay break: 25 size: 40 font: CarterOne-Regular.ttf position: middle
