When you post a video on TikTok, your creativity has the potential to ignite a chain reaction. Videos can kickstart new trends, inspire Duets, and transform into remixes just like Curtis Roach's 'Bored In The House' which rose to fame in lockdown and received the remix treatment from Tyga and Jax Jones.
We know TikTok creators are always watching out for how to edit TikTok videos in new and exciting ways. Today, we're excited to announce the launch of a new editing feature called Stitch, which introduces another way for TikTok users to engage with the world of content that's made and shared every day by the ever-creative community.
What is Stitch?
Stitch gives users the ability to clip and integrate scenes from another user's video into their own. Like Duet, Stitch is a way to reinterpret and add to another user's content, building on their stories, tutorials, recipes, lessons and more.
Users can decide in their settings whether or not others can Stitch their content, just like with Duet. The option can be accessed on the Privacy and Safety page under 'Settings and Privacy,' where users can enable or disable Stitch for all videos. The option can also be toggled for each individual video uploaded. Every video made with Stitch attributes the original creator in the new video's caption, and the caption attribution links directly to the original, clipped video.
We have lots of ideas about how users will make use of Stitch, but we're confident we'll be delighted and surprised by our community's ingenuity in creating with it and bringing new stories to life. The possibilities are endless!
