Microsoft has added a new useful application directly to Windows 11


Microsoft Clipchamp

Microsoft continues to bring Windows 11 to mind – the new operating system is acquiring additional features and useful applications. So in the beta build of Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22572, testers discovered a new program called Clipchamp.

Clipchamp is nothing more than a video editor that will serve as a replacement for the long-deprecated Windows Movie Maker. Microsoft didn’t develop Clipchamp from scratch, instead the IT giant bought a company with a ready-made product to build it into its OS. The application is positioned primarily as an answer to Apple QuickTime Player and other video editors that have long surpassed the long-suffering Movie Maker in terms of convenience and capabilities.

With Clipchamp, you can quickly convert, cut, merge videos, as well as delete or select an audio track from them. It has a timeline, like in professional editing programs, you can add divisions, transitions, text with animation.

In addition, Clipchamp is able to interoperate with other built-in apps in Windows 11. For example, the editor supports an Azure-powered text-to-speech generator that can be used to voice-over videos. Finished materials can be immediately uploaded to OneDrive cloud storage. The app also has an external library of free stock videos, audio, and images.
