Apple’s video creation app Clips gets a big update
With a redesigned layout, multiple aspect rations, HDR support, and more.
Apple has updated its Clips app to version 3.0 for iPhone and iPad. The video creation app now comes with a redesigned layout and fullscreen browsers on iPhone, while the iPad version adds support for trackpad and mouse in addition to landscape mode. The new Scribble feature in iPadOS 14, which converts handwritten text with Apple Pencil into typed text, is also supported.
The latest update to Clips enables users to create and edit videos in multiple aspect ratios, including horizontal and vertical. The iPhone app automatically opens to a 16:9 ratio, while the iPad app to a 4:3 ratio. This comes handy for creating stories for Instagram and Snapchat, Apple notes. Originally, Clips only supported videos in square format.
Apple Clips 3.0 can record and share videos in HDR using the rear-facing cameras on iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. It also hosts existing HDR photos and videos from the Photos library for in-app editing. The final video automatically switches to a Dolby Vision HDR file while sharing.
It also brings a collection of eight new stickers. Not only this the update has also added six new arrows and shapes, and 25 new soundtracks to use. These soundtracks can automatically adjust their length to match the video’s length. Clips 3.0 is now available for iPhone and iPad from the App Store.
