How To Edit TikTok Videos

To start creating TikTok videos, we want to show you some helpful tips.


TikTok is a short video-sharing app owned by ByteDance, a Chinese company. In 2017, ByteDance acquired Musical.ly, another short video sharing app, for $1 billion. Since then, TikTok has become one of the biggest apps in the world, where it has over 700 million registered users


Are you wondering how to edit videos on TikTok? You’re in the right place! Here are some tips, unwritten rules, and best practices to get started.


Filming a TikTok


You can either film a video using your phone camera and then edit it inside the TikTok app, or you can add photos and videos from your camera roll to the TikTok app. Either way, you need to be careful about what kind of content you upload. Be sure to avoid anything illegal or that could get you in trouble. Also, make sure that any copyrighted material you upload isn't protected by copyright law.


Countdown timer


The countdown timer allows you to start your video without having to hold down the button. You can access the countdown timer on the first screen by pressing the + icon at the bottom of your phone.


Effects


All kinds of effects are very popular, but you can also bookmark certain effects you want to use later without having to go back through them all again. You can choose to shoot videos either for 15 or 60 seconds so that the camera stops filming after these times. 


As we mentioned, there is also a countdown timer which can be set for three or ten seconds, so that when you tap on the record button, it will begin filming the video normally after this amount of time, so you are ready before action starts! When you finish recording, make sure you press the record button before moving on to the next section. You should also use the delete button when you've made an error.


Adjust your clips


You can add text to your TikTok videos using the edit button. Tap 'record' and then drag the red line across the bottom of the screen to create a new clip. Then, tap the 'adjust clips' button and adjust the length of each clip individually. To change or remove a clip, tap on the clip and then tap start over'. Save your video once you've finished adjusting the clips. Tap on sounds and search for the sound or section you want to use. Here's a guide on how to make a sound on TikTok


Choose from many options of sections of songs. Add favorite sounds to the list of favorites. Next, you can adjust the volume level of your original recordings in comparison to the sound added by TikTok. To do so, just tap on the volume icon on the right-hand side of the screen. To record a voice-over for your video, go into the microphone icon on the bottom right of the screen. If there are any filter effects you'd like to apply, then go into the effects icon on the top right of the video. Then, choose the effects you wish to apply, and play the video. Once you're happy with the results, hold down on the effect you want to apply to the part of the video where you want it to appear. Continue adding effects to other parts of the video until you are satisfied with the result.


Transitions


With this tool, you can create cool transitions for your videos. You can add text to your videos by clicking on the text box. You can also make a video slow down or go fast. And there are many other features in this software.


Sound


Sound is a vital part of every TikTok video. You can easily add a great song to any video using the app. Browse popular songs or search for a particular song you're looking for. Once you've found what you're looking for, tap on the 'Sounds' section at the bottom of your screen to access the sounds available. Choose the starting point of your song and start recording!


Text


Tap on the 'Text' tab to add captions. There's a huge selection of fonts to choose from, and you can also change colors and alignments. Type what you want to appear on your video, along with the font and color. Pick when you want it to appear, and for how long. Easy!


Stickers


You can add stickers to any part of your video. These include polls, timestamps, and emojis.


Can you Edit TikTok Videos After Posting?


TikTok doesn't allow you to edit videos after posting. You need to double-check before posting.


Using an External Editor


You need to upload your video to TikTok to make sure you can edit it. When you want to edit it, you need to go into the private mode to make sure nobody else sees it. After posting your video, you can download it by tapping on your profile, selecting the video, and selecting download.


Final Thoughts


If you were previously struggling to edit TikToks before, then this guide should help you to create the content that you want to create. Be sure to play around with all the effects that TikTok has to offer to really stand yourself out from the crowd.
