CapCut is just one of the apps and features that TikTok creators can use to elevate the quality of their videos and to tap into trending video formats and templates.

CapCut is specifically good for creating eye-catching and unique videos using existing video clips and images – with creators simply uploading their visuals and leaving the CapCut app to do the rest.

Once your visuals and content are uploaded, CapCut is an editing tool which enables you to access unique transition slides, layer photos on top of each other, edit songs, add stickers, adjust the saturation of colours, and more.

So, how do you access CapCut and make this editing tool work for you?

Finding and Accessing Capcut as a TikTok User

Contrary to popular belief, CapCut is not an editing tool which is directly available through TikTok. Rather, it is a third party app onto which you can upload your content, use the various tools, and then download the finished video onto your device and ultimately onto TikTok.

Here’s how to use the CapCut editing app in 5 simple steps.

  1. Download the app
  2. Select ‘New Project’
  3. Select the video clips and images that you want to use in your TikTok video and tap ‘Add’. This will import those clips and photos into your project
  4. Experiment with the plethora of editing tools, using templates that are available on CapCut
  5. Complete your video, Preview it, and – when you’re happy – export it as a download

How to Use a Capcut Template From TikTok

If you see a specific CapCut template on TikTok that you want to use yourself, you can do so by selecting the ‘Try this Template’ button.

A pop up will invite you to ‘Use Template in CapCut’ – opening the template in your CapCut app so that you can then edit and adjust the details to your hearts content.

We hope this helps. CapCut is great for TikTok creators who lack the inspiration needed to unlock new styles and types of content. It is also a great way to get involved with trends you may see on the app, but aren’t sure how to replicate!
