Start editing a new video
There are two different ways to start editing a new video.
You can start editing a new video via the dashboard page, once you have signed in to your Clipchamp account. Either click create a new video button, record something button, or click on the + button.
If you're inside the editor already, you can create a new video by clicking on the Clipchamp logo in the top left corner of the editor. Click the new video button to start a new video.
Here, you can also return to the homepage, create a new video, upgrade your plan, suggest a feature, view keyboard shortcuts, and access our help articles.
New videos default to a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. You can change the aspect ratio by clicking on the aspect ratio button next to the property panel.
