Turn full-length YouTube videos into viral, short clips
Skip all the tedious work. When you copy-and-paste the YouTube URL to your video, you get multiple clips trimmed for you, ready for you to edit directly or download.
Find the best parts of your video—instantly
Find the best moments in under 10 seconds. This YouTube Clip Maker transcribes and scans through your video, finding the moments that are most likely to go viral on YouTube Shorts, Instagram Reels, or TikTok.
Get your YouTube clips tailored for every social media platform
You got your clips. That must be it, right? Wrong! Step into the Repurpose Studio to not only make clips from a YouTube video, but also get them edited for each channel—automatically.
Always keep speakers front-and-center
What you don’t usually think about while recording a talking session: auto-framing. Auto-framing switches cameras to focus on an individual as they talk. Perfect for multiple speakers in one video, this is the best automatic feature for podcasts, webinars, and meetings.
