TikTok released a set of new editing tools aimed at making it simpler to modify video, music, text, and other elements.
Users in the US and “most countries internationally” may get the upgrades right now, the business said in a statement on Thursday. According to TikTok(Opens in a new window), which now allows creators to stack, trim, and split videos as well as edit audio, position text, change video speed, and embed sound effects, “our new editing tools empower people to enjoy more creative freedom, share richer stories, and bring their content ideas to life across formats.”
Other capabilities include the ability to rotate or zoom in and out of the frame on individual clips, as well as the addition of photo and video overlays for picture-in-picture (or video-in-video) stacking. “We’re thrilled to see how an improved editing experience fuels narrative, makes video production intuitive and more approachable, and makes it simpler than ever to produce outstanding content,” the company said.
The social network is borrowing a leaf from Instagram’s playbook with Photo Mode, a mobile-only carousel style for sharing high-quality photographs, while the rest of the internet copies TikTok’s successful video-first approach. The IG Stories-like feature automatically shows photographs one after another with the opportunity to add a soundtrack. You have undoubtedly already seen them appear on your FYP. Additionally, viewers may scroll through at their own speed.
