The final verdict
Choosing between Captions and Submagic depends on your specific needs and how you plan to create your videos.
Captions focuses on a variety of different features: video editing, subtitles, eye tracking, and more. So, it's great if you have multiple requirements. However, their subtitle styles are limited, and there are very few trendy animations and templates available. They are only accessible on mobile.
Submagic is the premier tool for creating subtitles as it's their specialty, and they excel in it. They regularly introduce new caption styles, with extensive animations on emojis and highlighted keywords.
If you're looking to create amazing dynamic captions for your videos, we definitely recommend using Submagic.

What are the differences between subtitles, closed captions, and hardcoded subtitles?
Subtitles, closed captions, and hardcoded subtitles serve the common purpose of providing text-based content for audiovisual media, but they differ in their implementation. Subtitles display a translated or transcribed text on-screen for viewers who understand the language spoken. Closed captions offer additional accessibility by including sound effects and speaker identification, catering to hearing-impaired audiences. Hardcoded subtitles are permanently embedded in the video, while the others can be toggled on or off during playback.
