NOVA A.I. is designed to create subtitles automatically. You can hardcode subtitles to your video and share it with your audience.

How to hardcode subtitles online?

Burn subtitles to your videos with almost no effort. Nova A.I. offers hardcoding subtitles so you can save time and edit videos more effectively.

Upload your videos

To hardcode subtitles, first, upload the video you want to subtitle to Nova A.I.’s creative studio. You can upload from your library, or directly from TikTok by simply pasting the URL of the video into the URL field.

Select how to subtitle your video

Let Nova A.I. automatically generate subtitles for your video, upload an existing subtitle or text file, or manually type subtitles. You have complete control of your subtitling processes.

Export in different formats

When you have reviewed and made optional edits, click export and toggle ‘Burn subtitles’ in the drop-down menu.

Easy access and share.

Hardcoding subtitles ensures that the text is always visible regardless of the playback environment or platform. This is beneficial for viewers who may encounter compatibility issues with external subtitle files or for platforms that do not support dynamic subtitle overlays. By being part of the video itself, the subtitles become universally accessible, making the content more inclusive. Videos with hardcoded subtitles can be easily shared and distributed without the need to attach separate subtitle files. This is particularly advantageous for social media platforms, video-sharing websites, or any situation where the video file may be shared independently of external subtitle files.

Improve viewer engagement.

Hardcoded subtitles eliminate the need for viewers to manually enable or disable subtitles, providing a seamless viewing experience. This can be especially important for capturing the attention of viewers who may be reluctant to engage with content that requires additional steps for subtitle activation. By displaying subtitles by default, content creators can enhance viewer engagement and comprehension. Furthermore, content creators can ensure that their subtitles align with their brand style and maintain a consistent look throughout the entire video. This level of control is valuable for maintaining viewers' familiarization and connection with your content.

Hardcode subtitles in foreign language.

Using NOVA A.I.’s automatic video translator, you can translate your videos into more than 100 different languages and dialects.

Frequently asked questions

Do you have any questions? Check out our FAQ's our contact our sales team.

Can I edit hardcoded subtitles?

No, once they are hardcoded, you or anyone else can’t edit them on the exported file. However, with NOVA A.I. you can edit subtitles before you burn subtitles, or if you have already exported you can return to “Edit video’. Editing is usually done after the subtitles have been generated simply by going to the ‘Subtitle’ panel and selecting the subtitle cards you want to edit. You can also click on the subtitle card directly on the timeline and access it from there.

Can I remove hardcoded subtitles?

Unfortunately, hardcoded subtitles is a permanent option imprinting text onto your video without an exit door.

Should I hardcode or softcode subtitles?

It depends on your preference and what you are trying to achieve. Softcoding subtitles allow the users to choose if they want subtitles displayed or not. The downside is that not everybody knows how to turn it on and off, or even knows that there is such an option. Hardcoding subtitles won’t allow your audience any control over the subtitles, but you will be sure that everyone sees them, and this way those that don’t know will be included. So it’s your choice. It only depends on the control you want to give to your audience.

How to hardcode subtitles?

Follow these simple steps to hardcode subtitles to your video automatically. 1. Log in to your NOVA A.I. account and make sure you’re on the video editing dashboard. 2. Click the “Create Project” button, and upload your video. (from your library or directly from YouTube or TikTok by pasting the video URL.) 3. Click on the “Subtitles” panel. You can see all the subtitling options available. Select the “Auto Subtitle” option to create subtitles automatically. Alternatively, upload a subtitle file (srt, vtt or txt) or type subtitles manually. 4. Review, edit and translate subtitles (optional) 5. When you’re done, click on the “Export” button. Toggle the “Burn Subtitles” button and export. As simple as that.

How do I make subtitles permanent?

Hardcoding subtitles will make them permanent. Burn in captions by following the steps explained in the Q: ‘How to hardcode subtitles’.

What are hardcoded subtitles?

Upgraded to Tier #3

Love this platform for captioning videos. Replaces Spoke and ChopCast for me. I would like to see a "search and replace" feature for changing caption text spelling as it phonetically picks the sound of a word but sometimes brings up poor spelling.

A global "search and replace" change would speed up the software and make your captions sparkle even for more complex topics.

I'm doing a voice translation of the bible and many of the names are spelled differently etc.

Still, this application does handle a need I have been looking for and I'm very glad I got in on a lifetime plan. Looking forward to a long future with NOVA AI.

This is truly the fastest way to create stunning videos.

@AhayahAssemblyChurch - app sumo review

What I was looking for for a long time!I missed the Happyscribe deal, so I used it by paying for some videos. When I saw that NovaAI offered the same thing, but better, I didn't hesitate for a second.

I love the ease of importing a video, and the generation of subtitles.

Being French, I had very little correction to do. In one click, my subtitles were translated into English, et voilà!

Not much to criticize: maybe the delay of the operations is a bit long, but it remains anecdotal.

Thank you for this deal, it will help me a lot!

@AlexSpirit - app sumo review

I uploaded a clear, English speaking video clip, and the subtitles were spot-on, with minor corrections needed.

Then I translated the English subtitles to Chinese, and was pleasantly surprised to see that it isn't just a literal word-by-word translation, but with correct sentence composition, since

Chinese structure is very different from English. The only glitch I found is that the Traditional Chinese translation is actually in Simplified Chinese. It's identical to the Simplified Chinese translation. I am sure it's an oversight and an easy fix for the developer.

The transcribing and translating of subtitles alone will save me so much time. I just need to upload the video and let Nova A.I. work in the cloud, while I move on to do other things. If you need subtitles, this is your tool!

@kingsley - app sumo review

My recommendation totally recommendation 5 Tacos and unlimited of bonus tacos.It's truly- simple, innovative, suitable, secure and Intelligent.

Get the deal before it closes!

@Adam2000 - app sumo review

I am sure many like me are wondering, I dont need another video tool. Thats what i thought too but could not resist taking it for a ride and i can say that its my all time favorite.

All the basic tools needed for video editing is there and it works like a charm, something like a desktop type smoothness. But that not that only its got tons of features and a solid AI working behind the scene like elevating your video cataloguing to another level and that too without you doing anything, all AI driven.

I mean thats wooow.....especially at this price point. And it transcribes and translates.....well, what can it not do. solid 5 tacos.for us UI UX and ease of use are most important, nova scores 10/10 in that.

We were using other online video tools but gradually they seems slow down on loading and rendering, hope nova will learn from those experiences and will make sure flowless fast result generation.

@Uni - app sumo review

For me, one of the most tedious tasks in video production (in a one-man-operation) is adding subtitles.

I have been unsuccessfully searching for a tool that can help me achieve this task with the least amount of headache while still achieving great accuracy - and I'm happy to say that with out a doubt, Nova AI has taken this headache away.

I think a lot more work is still needed for this tool to reach it's full potential, which to be fair, are just extra bells and whistles but important non the less; right now, the editor still looks a little too basic.

That being said, I don't really see this as an issue, because for my needs, this app has already met my expectations. So please, regardless of the extra features the devs are looking to implement, don't mess around too much with the excellent the auto subtitle generator.
