Clips is a mobile-based video editing app from Apple. It’s a free application that is getting a new massive update, offering its own version of augmented reality.
Apple is calling it Clips 2.0.
Clips was launched by Apple during the first few months of the year. When the free app hit the AppStore, it was very clear that Apple was not trying to position Clips as a sophisticated editor like iMovie or FinalCut. Rather, it’s an app that allows the user to stitch video clips together easily.
However, with the new upgrade, it seems Clips is slowly getting there. By far, the most impressive feature is the Selfie Scenes. It’s a feature that allows the user to drop the real-world background when taking a selfie, and replace it with something more exciting. There are times that you’d want to show-off a real-life background. And yet, there are times that you are just at your office or home, and a different selfie background is what you need. Selfie Scenes is the answer.
According to Apple, the new features comes with 10 scenes, which includes Mega-Destroyer (Star Wars) and Millennium Falcon. The technology behind Selfie Scenes is truly the amazing part of the package. Selfie Scenes makes use of the TrueDepth system to separate the background and foreground. TrueDepth is a native feature of the iPhone X. As of the moment, Selfie Scenes feature is only available for the iPhone X. For non-iPhone X users, Clips has a still a lot of upgrades which makes it worthwhile to check out. For example, there’s the artistic effect, which is more than just merely applying a filter.
The Clips’ artistic effects make use of machine learning to create art styles, like turning your video clips into a charcoal sketch or oil painting.
Apple also added iCloud integration. This means that you can share your videos between several devices. Most importantly, iCloud integration also means that you are able to start editing on one device, and finish the editing on another device.
The new Clips also rocks a new design. The content has also been updated. For example, there are new 6 new stickers designed by Apple. Also, 21 new and free-to-use adaptable music tracks. These are the convenient tracks that automatically adjust in accordance with the length of the video. While Clips is still far from being a sophisticated video editor, but it now offers a lot of features that it’s a very good option for most users. Hence, you might want to check this free app from Apple.
