TikTok has added a new set of video editing features, just in time for the holidays, which will give users more ways to create engaging, swipe-stopping clips for their followers and fans in the app.
The main addition is a new GIF option within its Green Screen tool, which will enable users to select from a selection of moving GIPHY GIFs to apply as their background when they use the Green Screen effect.
TikTok said: “Whether looking for the perfect reaction GIF or showcasing an iconic meme, GIPHY in Green Screen unlocks exciting new opportunities for creativity and storytelling.”
That could make for some increasingly creative and interesting combinations – though it is interesting to see GIPHY, which Meta acquired last year, partnering with TikTok on the project. The option will help to improve the look of your clips without you needing to make manual edits, while also helping to avoid frustration in capture.
TikTok’s also leaning further into creative sound effects, with a new option that will enable users to “make any sound or voice from their videos sound like an animal or musical instrument”.
