How to Use Apple’s Clips App

The Clips app, from Apple, allows you to create a new short video from existing photos and videos as well as being able to record new video right inside the app itself. Clips allows you to overlay graphics and add effects to make the video fun and really quite polished.

Clips calls each compilation of videos and photos a project and you can only have one project open at a time. As you add more content to your project, you’ll see the list of items grow nearly the middle left side of the screen. If you decide to stop working on a project and come back to it later, you can save your project and then open it again when you’re ready.

Clips is already installed if your iPhone or iPad is running iOS 11. If the app isn’t installed, here’s what to do:

  1. Open the App Store app.
  2. Tap Search in the lower-right corner of the screen.
  3. Type Clips in the Search box.
  4. Swipe up and down in the results screen if necessary.
  5. When you see the Clips app, tap Get to the right of the app name.
  6. After you install Clips, tap Open.

After you open Clips, you’ll see what your front camera sees on the screen and you can start taking a video.

Edit Your Clips

The options for the highlighted editing category appear at the bottom of the screen.

Each photo or video you take, or any photo or video you add from the Camera Roll, is added to your project. A project can include different clips from different sources. For example, you can add a photo as the first clip, two videos as the second and third clip, and a photo from your Camera Roll as your fourth clip.

The most recent clip you added or recorded appears at the right side of the row of clips in the lower-left corner of the screen. Play the clips in sequence by tapping the Play icon to the left of the row of clips. If there are too many clips to fit on the screen, swipe left and right to view all the clips.

When you have the clips ready, tap the Effects icon to the right of the Record button. (The icon looks like a multi-colored star.) Now you can edit clips in your project before you send them. Below the viewer, tap one of the four options from left to right:

When you’re finished adding effects, tap the X icon to the right of the Emoji option.

If you want to change or remove an effect from a clip, tap the clip tile at the bottom of the screen. Then tap the Effects icon, select the effect option, and select a new effect.

Remove a filter by tapping the Filters option if necessary and then tap the Original filter tile.

If you want to remove a label, sticker, or emoji, here’s how:

  1. Tap the LabelsStickers, or Emoji option.
  2. Tap the label, sticker, or emoji in the center of the photo or video.
  3. Tap the icon above and to the left of the label, sticker, or emoji.
  4. Tap Done at the bottom of the screen to close the Effects screen.
