We have focused on Clipchamp’s video editing capabilities, using the desktop version. Knowing Clipchamp has a mobile app, we explored it (spoiler alter – we were disappointed by the capabilities…).
Installing the Clipchamp mobile app is fast and easy. On either IOS or Android, search for “Clipchamp” in the app store. Click GET to download and install.
On the first run, click LOGIN and add same account information as the desktop install is setup with.
The iPhone’s app interface looks different from the online browser or desktop app. The mobile version does not have ability to work with multiple videos and in general has limited video editing capabilities, favoring preset templates. Currently it is very social media video focused.
To create a video, click the “+” button, or select a template option. The default is to record a new video. There is an option to upload an existing video.
Name the video, add text overlays, music, images from the camera roll or Clipchamp’s stock media.
When done, export in selected video quality.
When done, export in selected video quality. Your video will download or you have the option to share it to social media.
The mobile app is good for creating a simple video quickly. But it currently has a very limited set of editing options over the desktop app for any real video editing needs.
