Create incredible videos for free

CapCut is a smartphone app developed to complement the basic video editing capability of TikTok, a social networking mobile app where users make, watch, and post 15-second videos, similar to other apps like iMyFone Filme and Filme Lite. The app was created by Bytedance.

CapCut allows users to create, trim, and customize the content of their clips. It also allows users to customize a timeline and incorporate various elements in separate layers to make trendy and viral videos. CapCut has a wide library of songs and sounds, as well as stickers and fonts, that you can use in your TikToks.

Is CapCut a Chinese app?

Bytedance, the creator of TikTok, bought CapCut in 2018. It was previously known as Viamaker (or Jianying in China). The app has now been optimized to be the "ideal" TikTok video editing app. It has features that go beyond those of TikTok. This includes more stickers, filters, speed changes, background music, and effects. 

In the same way that TikTok allows you to create slow and fast motion videos, you can do the same with CapCut. Select a set speed other than the video's original speed, such as 0.1x or 3.0x, by pressing the Speed button. When you change the tempo, you'll notice that the duration of the video changes, which is very useful. 

When setting the speed is the resolution of the original video. If you choose to use slow motion, make sure the original footage was filmed in HD or at a high frame rate. For example, 30 frames per second may be sufficient for normal playback, but when slowed down to 0.1x, it may appear pixelated and disjointed. Shoot at 60 frames per second or higher to avoid those issues.

Create the best videos for your audience

CapCut is a great video editing tool that will help TikTok users develop their editing skills and make their videos stand out on 'For You' pages of other users. It also allows you to move between OSs with ease; you can edit and share videos from almost any device. Combining the app's powerful tools will enable your viewers to get the most out of your TikTok video editing experience.
