Microsoft buys Clipchamp, the web app to edit videos | Digital Trends Spanish

Clipchamp is a web video creation and editing tool that has grown in popularity in recent years. And perhaps because of this, Microsoft has decided to acquire the entire company, which is now part of its portfolio of brands and products.

In a post on their official site, Microsoft explains the reasons why they have acquired Clipchamp. And these have to do with the fact that until not long ago, video creation was limited to professionals only; however, that has changed and the video can be as important as a photo or document.

The company has been in existence since 2013, it already has 17 million registered users and during the first half of 2021, use increased by 186 percent over the previous year.

Clipchamp has a very simple interface to use, even for less advanced users, thanks to a scheme of templates default. These templates they apply to various types of videos, whether for more formal presentations or short clips in social media format.

Added to this simplicity is the fact that Clipchamp is a web application, but that at the same time it uses hardware acceleration to carry out the encoding process, both of the final file and of the effects, transitions and elements that are added to them.

Microsoft promises current users of the application that over time the experience will be enriched with more options and elements. Currently, Clipchamp exists in a free and a paid version, although there is also a version in the Windows store that seems to work on Microsoft Edge.

Perhaps Clipchamp will end up being a spiritual successor to Windows Movie Maker, the legendary program that old operating systems that lost much relevance with the passage of time.
