Clipchamp Google Workspace integration 1

Clipchamp creators that store files in Google Drive have gotten two great upgrades recently that streamline the editing process more than ever. In December, our team released Clipchamp’s Google Drive Import/Export functionality which has now been made even better with the launch of the Clipchamp add-on in Google’s Workspace Marketplace. This latest integration now allows Google Drive users to open files directly from their Google Drive to Clipchamp, no need to take extra steps to download or import!

How to open files with Clipchamp using our Google Workspace integration

1. Find Clipchamp in the Google Workspace Marketplace

Visit the Google Workspace Marketplace and search for Clipchamp (You can also navigate directly to the marketplace listing: here.) Once you visit the add-on listing, select Install.

Now that you have installed the Google Workspace add-on, you are now able to open video files directly from Google Drive into the Clipchamp editor. Once you navigate to the file of your choice, right-clicking the file will provide you with an options menu with Open with. In the Open With menu, select Clipchamp and your file is on its way.
