This article shows you how to sign up to a new account (for free) and use our video editor. If you'd like to sign in to an existing account, please see this article instead: logging in and out of Create.


How to sign up to Clipchamp Create

If you've never used our video editor before, you can set up a free account in a few quick steps and start editing your videos straight away. 

First, visit this web address (or go to the Clipchamp home page and click the sign up button in the top right):

NOTE: if you're already logged in to an existing account, and want to create a new one, simply sign out via your user icon in the top left corner of the editor, then click the "Don't have an account? Sign up" link in the top right of the screen.

A page will appear with a box titled: Let's get started with Create. 

Choose the main purpose you intend to make videos for, e.g. education, corporate or personal (this doesn't affect the layout or function of the editor).

Next you'll see a screen with log in methods:

You can sign up using your Google or Facebook account by selecting one of those options and following the prompts.

If you want to sign up with email, click Use my email.

On the next screen if you enter your name and email and click sign up, a magic link will be sent to your email address that you can use to login. This method will require you to use a new magic link when you sign in in future.

If you'd like to set up an email and password combination for your account instead, click "Use password instead" at the bottom of the window.

Fill in your details, choose a password, and click Sign up.

If you've chosen to sign up with email only (magic link) or with email + password, you'll see a message like this:

Go to your email inbox, find the email from Clipchamp and click the CONFIRM EMAIL button, or copy and paste the link displayed below it into your browser.

If you don't see the email, check your spam or junk mail folder.

A new account will now be created and you will be signed into it.

In future if you want to log in to your account using a different method you will still be able to, as long as it's associated with the same email address. For more information, see: Logging in and out of Create.


The Projects Page

Once you've signed up, you will be taken to your Create Projects Page. This is where your projects will appear when you create them.

To start editing, click the Create a video button in the top right or select a template.

Be sure to click "Allow" in the popup that appears, otherwise Create will not function properly (see Why does Create ask to store files on my device?):
