Apple's Clips App Receives Update Adding Disney/Pixar Content and More”

After launching Clips for iOS back in early April, Apple is today releasing an update for the social video editing app that adds a handful of notable new features. Launched alongside, rather than replacing iMovie for iOS, Clips was meant to address the concern that its existing video editing tool was a little too serious and fairly complex. There are a couple of feature updates in the mix, but the biggest additions are content - including, most notably, a bunch of licensed characters from the Disney/Pixar universes, adding animated overlays and transitions starring familiar faces like Mickey and Woody. And from Pixar, characters originating in Toy Story, Inside Out, and Cars are available. There are also a variety of new posters available to be used as title cards, some of which were designed by Disney and others by Apple. The new update does not, however, include any new visual filters.

The app - which faced a little criticism on its release for being tricky to fathom out - has also come in for a UI revamp.

Meanwhile, though Apple's promotion of Clips has still been fairly low-key - unlike, say, it's well known billboards demonstrating iPhone photography - it hasn't been slow to push the app out. When it falls short, though, users can now just tap a button to jump straight into editing mode rather than tapping a clip with Live Titles, then tapping the text and then tweaking as needed. I haven't actually played with the upgrade myself, but they add a nice, dynamic touch to videos created on the app.
