Video has become one of the most powerful ways to tell stories. With many businesses now having video as a key part of their communication strategies; both internally and public-facing.
Always looking to empower creators, Microsoft acquired video editing tool Clipchamp back in 2021.
Up until now, Clipchamp has only been available to people using personal Microsoft 365 accounts. This week, however, it has been announced that the tool will be made available to Microsoft 365 commercial customers too.
Let’s take a deep dive into what this means for businesses like yours.
Wait - what is Microsoft Clipchamp?!
Clipchamp is an in-browser video creation and editing platform. Giving everyone the tools they need to produce professional looking videos to tell their stories. Without having to be an experienced video editor.
Top features of Microsoft Clipchamp for work
Clipchamp makes it easy for businesses to create high quality and professional videos, with a drag and drop interface and intuitive features. Let’s take a closer look at some of these and how they might benefit your business:
1. Intuitive video editing tools
Designed specifically to give everyone the power to create professional videos without the need for experience, the video editing tools within Clipchamp are very easy-to-use. Trim away unwanted footage, merge different video clips, and crop out unwanted space. Adjust the speed of your clips, add filters, and even use the professional green screen function.
2. Ready-made templates
