Step 1. Create a video in Clipchamp using a TikTok template

You can create a new video or start with one of Clipchamp's TikTok video templates. We’ve designed these templates to perfectly fit TikTok specifications. The portrait aspect ratio is 9:16 and is the perfect size to watch on your phone. However, you can also export in square aka 1:1 if you like.

In the editor, you can find the collection in the sidebar’s Templates tab or you can type TikTok into the search bar. When you’ve found a template you like, click the green plus icon to add it to your timeline.

From here, you can edit your video by adding text, transitions, and even GIFs until you’re happy.

Step 2. Select an export format that works for TikTok

Click the export button when you’re finished editing. Then you can choose a resolution and click continue. We recommend 720p for TikTok.

Step 3. Send your video to TikTok

On the last screen called the export page, you’ll see all the platforms you can share your video to. Look for the right logo and click send to TikTok.

The first time you send to TikTok, you’ll need to connect your account by clicking the connect to TikTok button.

When you connect your account, you’ll also need to authorize Clipchamp to access your account and publish videos.

Open your TikTok account and check your notifications to access the video sent from Clipchamp. Then, follow TikTok’s prompts to edit your video further with features unique to TikTok, like adding trending sounds or songs. Once you’re happy with your video, you can write a caption, add some hashtags and post away!
