Starting in Windows 11 version 2022 Clipchamp is set as a default video editor. It also lifted up the free version limits. The export video format now supports 1080p (initially was restricted to 480p), and no includes a watermark.

When you first start Clipchamp, it offers you to pick a template for your project. The templates are optimized for popular websites like YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram. There are also templates for holidays, celebrations, and gaming. Users can also use a gallery of stock audio, images, video clips, filters and effects.

Clipchamp is very easy to use, so you can create and compile your video with a few clicks. However, some users do not use it that often, so they find annoying to always see it in the context menu for media files.
