Clipchamp is a video editing platform and browser-based tool which was acquired by Microsoft last year in September. The move opened up opportunities for Microsoft to pivot its attempts with Windows 11, Xbox, and even Office 365 as software accessible to various video creatives.
Since the acquisition, the platform has received an array of features as well as updates. For instance, upgrading the free tier to 1080p exports. It was previously limited to 480p exports. The platform also got a new fancy Fluent-design inspired logo.
Previously, the platform had four tiers: free, creator, business, and business platinum. But in August, Clipchamp cleaned up its paid plans narrowing the options to two, a free plan and an essential tier. The essential tier now comes with most of the features that the other plans had at a discounted rate of $11.99 per month. The same also applies to the free plan as it features all its previous capabilities, but no brand kits or content backup.
And now, Microsoft has found a way to integrate Clipchamp premium features with Microsoft 365. If you have a Microsoft 365 subscription, you will now be able to access premium filters on Clipchamp which is part of the essentials tier, this includes warm countryside, dreamscape, soft B&W, winter sunset, cool tone, and sunrise. Therefore, if you have an active Microsoft 365 subscription you will be able to access these premium filters on top of the already existing free filters and effects at no additional cost.
You will also be able to access a few premium sound effects through the Microsoft 365 subscription.
