Unlike other online video tools and editors, where files have to be uploaded to a server for processing, Clipchamp's cutting-edge technology processes video files locally inside your browser. This makes the process much faster and provides better privacy protection, because the video files never leave your computer (unless you choose to make use of one of the built-in sharing options or the cloud backup feature).
You also don't need to download and install any software. Just point your Chrome or MS Edge (Chromium-based) to Clipchamp, sign up for an account (or sign in with Google or Facebook), and you are good to go.
What's more, you don't have to pay to be able to use our Create and Utilities video tools. The free plans of these products offer the same basic editing tools and conversion options as the paid plans. Paid plans provide additional features such as access to unlimited stock video and audio and higher resolution exports (in Create). For full details of what our free and paid plans include, see this article.
We also aim to make our tools as easy to use as possible, so you don't need to fiddle with complicated conversion or edit settings.
