Apple's Clips app

Apple has its own video editing and sharing tool, Clips, and the company has just updated the app to bring in a new filter, new stickers, what it calls Live Tiles, and more.

Today, Apple has updated Clips with a variety of new additions. First and foremost, there is a brand new filter that will add a retro camcorder look to a video. There are eight new posters to choose from, including new options with solid colors for a background, vintage designs, and an animated globe that will help users celebrate Earth Day.

This update brings Clips up to version 2.0.6. You can read the full changelog just below:

  • Use the new camcorder filter to give your videos a retro video camera look
  • Choose from 8 new posters including options with solid backgrounds, colorful vintage designs, a classic blue camcorder recording screen, and an animated globe to celebrate Earth Day
  • Create titles and captions with 3 new Live Titles styles featuring static text that appears all at once or animated text that highlights each word as it’s spoken
  • Apply new 8-bit and 3D-styled stickers to add emphasis to your videos
  • Create songs in GarageBand and other music apps, then add them directly to new or existing Clips projects
  • Duplicate and rename projects
  • Share projects with friends via AirDrop or email, save them to Files, or upload them to cloud storage services with share extensions
  • ClassKit support lets students deliver video assignments to teachers using the Schoolwork app

Clips is free to download from the App Store, and you can find a link to the app below.

The last time the app was updated was in November of last year, which brought new content from the likes of Incredibles 2. If you want a quick lesson on how to use Clips, check out this link.

Our Take

Clips is a pretty cool app, even if it does lack the baked-in social media that some may want. Apple does make it easy to share outside of the app, though, which is a nice touch. The new features the company adds on a semi-regular basis are welcomed ones, too.
