Apple today updated its video creation app Clips with a handful of new features, introducing new graphic overlay options and support for Disney and Pixar characters.

Clips, first released back in April, is designed to let users combine several video clips, images, and photos with voice-based titles, music, filters, and graphics to create videos that can be shared in Messages and via social networks.


With today's update, Apple has added dozens of new graphic overlays and animated poster designs to enhance text-based additions that are added to videos. Posters range from glistening water to slow motion billowing smoke and 3D art.

Apple has also partnered with Disney to introduce animated overlays featuring classic Disney and Pixar characters. Animated overlays, which are akin to stickers, can be added to videos and photos. Available characters include Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, along with those from both Toy Story and Inside Out.

Clips was released as a standalone app in April, but Apple has made it a default pre-installed app on new iOS devices, making it more readily available to customers.

The new update is available today from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Sigh. Me too. I miss the days when people used computers to be PRODUCTIVE. I can't stand it when people use computers in ways I strictly disapprove of.

when computers were PRODUCTIVE they were used by the 1/10 of the size of the today's iPhone target group. It's inevitable that such apps will exist. But I m happy to pay such a little price for such a huge technology spread

Great app to drain the battery if you needed on... still unsure on this app... just to much work to do basic video editing and I am always fighting battery life....

I wish they let you split a clip!
Yeah splitting clips, actually adding snippets of songs and adding the stickers AT SPECIFIC TIME POINTS would be nice. I hate how everything you add is at the very beginning of the clip.

Also, its not a very intuitive app considering how simple it "looks"

I can not believe that people waste their time with stuff like this!:confused:

Mine is stuck half-way through the update. Been stuck there like that for 15 minutes. Other apps updated fine just now.

As soon as I posted that, the update completed smh

Fun! But Apple, why not just build this into he video recording and/or Messages? I'm sure that's the next step, right?

More like "Disney" crap. This and the watch faces seem like nothing but a marketing exercise.

Yeah Disney's old school characters haven't been popular in at least 15-20 years, I'm not sure why they keep bringing them into their software, but it's minorly awkward.
