Clipmaker: Create Working Clip Reels

Clipmaker allows users to compile clips from different videos across a selection of folders into Working Clip Reels. Working Clip Reels can then be saved as Saved Clip Reels that can then be exported as different media file formats like .mp4, .mp3, .mov, and .wmv. This article explains how you can search across your Clipmaker project to create clips.

If you need to create a new Clipmaker project, you can see more information on creating a new clipmaker project here.
