Snap launches ‘Story Studio’ video editor for iPhone
After a brief announcement earlier this year, Snap (the company behind popular social network Snapchat) on Tuesday launched a new app called “Story Studio” – which is essentially a standalone video editor for iPhone users.
Snap describes the new app as “a fast and fun way for creators to create advanced and engaging vertical videos to share on Snapchat.” This way, creators will have more advanced tools to edit their videos, as Snapchat’s app does not provide many editing tools.
Use the frame-accurate crop, split, and sync tools to get your edits done perfectly. Add layers and captions to tell your story, then Snapchat sounds. Try the latest Lens everyone is talking about and add smooth transitions from video to video.
As noted The edge, this is another attempt by Snapchat to retain its users in the face of fierce competition with TikTok and Instagram Reels. Videos created with Story Studio can be uploaded directly to Snapchat Spotlight, which is a public section dedicated to videos up to 60 seconds long, or user stories.
In October, Snapchat announced a new way for creators to monetize their content with “Spotlight Challenges,” which offers cash prizes to encourage users to post original content to the social network. TikTok and Instagram also pay creators for posting popular videos.
The new Story Studio app is available for free on the App Store. It’s worth noting that the app is only available to users in Canada, the US, and the UK – and is exclusive to iOS.
