Some time ago, Windows had Movie Maker, an intuitive and easy-to-use video editing tool that, to the dismay of many, was eventually discontinued. However, Microsoft seems to want to make up for this in Windows 11 with Clipchamp.

An intuitive and easy-to-use video editor

This video editor has a much more modern and up-to-date interface, so at first glance, you will not find many similarities with Movie Maker. It is meant for rather basic tasks, so if you are thinking of using it in professional projects, it will most likely fall short.

Clipchamp is based on linear editing, so you can add or remove elements from your project depending on when you want them to appear in the video. These can come from your own multimedia resources, but you can also use the tool's repository of videos, images, templates, and others. These are the main actions and features it offers:

  • Trim and cut videos to remove unwanted parts.
  • Cut videos and combine parts into a new project.
  • Flip the video and apply a mirror effect.
  • Rotate videos clockwise or counterclockwise 90 and 180 degrees.
  • Add audio or images from your gallery or video repository.
  • Add text, titles, and overlays.
  • Balance colors and add backgrounds.
  • Use filters and transitions.
  • Save videos in HD quality.
  • Use dozens of templates and other resources such as audio clips.
  • Format your videos for different projects, including as social media.

Clipchamp is integrated into the operating system itself, but those users who are enrolled in the Insider Program will see ir first, as with other functions. However, if you can't enjoy this new editor for any reason, you can always download the file we offer you.

Requirements and additional information:

  • Minimum operating system requirements: Windows 11.
  • Offers in-app purchases.
