TikTok is Introducing New Tools for Editing Videos

October 7, 2022

TikTok is rolling out new tools for editing videos that will enable users to reach more creative freedom on the platform. New tools will enable users to adjust clips, sounds, images, and text with ease.  These changes were announced recently, and the updated features are available to users in the U.S. and in many countries globally.

New tools will give users the ability to stack, trim and split video clips. There is a feature rolled out that will enable users to adjust speed, slow down, or speed up the pace in the video clips. As you already know, editing videos in TikTok is already simple, but such new tools broaden the spectrum of what creators can do with their creative expression on the platform. Additionally, TikTok is also providing new tools for sounds, enabling users to cut, trim and set the duration of sounds they use in the videos. You can also now add new sound effects. Sounds play a huge role on TikTok and are often the basis of trending posts, so there is no surprise that TikTok is updating the manner users can address sounds on the app.

TikTok is also giving users the ability to edit videos more easily and to position and set the duration of the text. Yet another new feature enables users to add a picture and video overlays for picture-in-picture or video-in-video stacking. And lastly, you can rotate or zoom in and out of frames of individual clips.

TikTok has also announced a new Photo Mode feature that will let you share carousel posts of images that automatically display one after another. You can add music to the images, which viewers can interact with at their own speed.

Lastly, TikTok has recently added the ability to share longer descriptions; users will be able to write a maximum of 2.200 characters for each post. Platform explains the extra space will enable creators to build on stories they’ve shared.

An incentive for frequent updates on new features has come as TikTok remains on its streak as the app that has generated the most revenue in a quarter for the fourth quarter in a row.
