Clips 3.0, available today on the App Store, features a streamlined interface with faster access to effects. On the iPad, Clips now supports landscape orientation, Scribble with Apple Pencil, and the use of a Bluetooth mouse or trackpad. The new version of the app also lets users make videos in multiple aspect ratios, including horizontal and vertical.

Clips on iPhone automatically opens to a new 16:9 vertical project, while on the iPad it opens to a new 4:3 landscape project.

Clips 3.0 has been optimized for HDR video recording using the rear cameras on all iPhone 12 models, resulting in higher contrast and more vibrant colors. These videos can be augmented with eight new stickers, six additional arrows and shapes, and 25 new soundtracks that automatically adjust to match the length of videos.

For more details about the Clips update, read the Apple Newsroom release.

Best thing I've seen on the internet today. I've used it several times; CLIPS has a lot of potential...but was feeling a bit outdated. Thanks Apple.

Nice that you’re not just limited to square video anymore! And some of those new live caption presets look cool.

?... is there any way to use the Clips app on an iPhone as a virtual camera for video conferencing? That Comic Book filter is great!

As a teacher, I use this app all the time for my classes. I also use it to make birthday, anniversary etc video's for friends and family. Huge potential, but they had kind of let it lapse. So happy they updated/upgraded it! Landscape, finally!

I can't wait to update it and play with it. I'm waiting on the 12 Pro Max, and then it should really fly!

Be Safe!
