Microsoft Adds 1080p Export Feature to Clipchamp’s Free Tier After User Criticism

Microsoft has been diversifying its offerings in order to provide a much more holistic and fully formed product line for its customers to take advantage of. Not all of these new product launches have gone as well as Microsoft might have hoped, with one of their more mixed review receiving offerings being the Clipchamp video editor which has been criticized for only offering 1080p exports for premium tier users even though this is a relatively basic feature.

Much like many of the new product offerings that Microsoft has been implementing, Clipchamp is a recent acquisition that the tech juggernaut made in the lead up to the launch of Windows 11. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that a lot of users criticized Clipchamp for only offering 480p exports for users that had the free tier, with 1080p only being reserved for users that were willing to pay for the premium tier.

It seems that Microsoft has gotten the memo and has made 1080p exports available for free tier users because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up making the software more likely for them to use. While Microsoft initially refused to adjust its pricing tiers and the features they offered, this is a very competitive market and failing to deliver something that users can easily get for free from competitors would have limited the reach of the video editor with all things having been considered and taken into account.

The remaining perks that users could get from other tiers such as Creator, Business and Business Platinum are still more or less the same. Features like unlimited cloud storage are actually worth paying for, but users should be able to at least export their edited videos in a high quality format without having to pay a monthly fee for the privilege. This is a feature that most free video editors generally offer, so users would have had no reason to switch to Clipchamp had this upgrade not been implemented.
