Edit your videos even faster with the new and improved toolbar.

Keeping the same original design but enhanced layout, the toolbar can assist all your editing adventures, including the your media tab, record & create, content library, templates, text, transitions, and brand kit.

Explore all the different tabs on the editing toolbar in Clipchamp.

Collapsable toolbar feature

Screen space is important for video editing, so the improved toolbar now has a collapse option to tuck it away when it’s not in use. With the toolbar collapsed, your video and timeline can expand. If you want to re-open the toolbar, just click on the same arrow to expand.

The your media tab

A small change, but a change nonetheless. The your media tab is now where you’ll find any media you’ve uploaded. You can filter through your assets using videos, images, and audio, or sort by date and name.

The content library tab

Easily discover higher quality and relevant stock assets all in the one place inside the new Content library tab. You’ll no longer need to search through multiple different tabs on the toolbar to find the right asset for your video. Find free and premium stock assets to add to your video all in the one place.
