Why would I use it?

  • Clipchamp allows users to create unlimited high-definition videos for free, without any watermarks.
  • It offers an intuitive and easy-to-use interface.
  • It is available on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and web browsers.
  • It offers various effects, transitions, templates, and royalty-free elements.

Usage considerations

- Some of the stock content requires a subscription. - Content backup functionality, the ability to create branded videos, and exporting 4K videos are exclusive to the paid version of Clipchamp. - Clipchamp falls short in terms of matching the extensive capabilities found in professional video software, such as Premiere Pro.
