YouTube has introduced a new feature that will make it easier for creators to import their longer videos into Shorts format.
The features enable creators to convert 60 seconds from an existing video into Shorts using all the same editing tools such as text, timeline editor, filters, etc.
With these features, creators can now bring fresh life to classic content and give it a new way to engage with their audiences.
YouTube announced this in a post on its website saying the finished Short will also be linked to the full video it was clipped from, which could help make Shorts an ideal promotional tool for the creator’s longer content.
The Edit tool for converting longer videos into Short only allows creators to make Shorts Clips from their original content, not possible for other creators’ content.
The new features are available for all mobile creation across iOS and Android devices.
