Microsoft Clipchamp podcasts

And by automatically, we mean that now Clipchamp will clean your videos of long silences in just a matter of seconds. According to the official blog post, Microsoft added a new AI-powered capability that will detect long periods of silence and suggest the user push a button and clean them all.

The new capability is called Silence Removal, and it’s perfect when editing video podcasts, for example, something that Microsoft wants users to use Clipchamp for. In fact, in a previous update, Microsoft added a bunch of audio-related features just for that.

This new AI feature in Clipchamp can remove long boring silences in a snap. Silence removal allows you to find, trim and delete the silent parts of audio or video files. This is perfect for anyone who wants to tidy up their podcasts, meetings, interview videos and voiceovers, without having to spend hours tediously editing out silences bit by bit.  


Users will be able to let AI detect these periods of silence, and they can choose to review and remove them one by one, or all at once.

The best thing? Silence Removal is available for free to all users with a personal account.

And, in case you need an intro and an outro for your podcasts when you edit in Microsoft Clipchamp, the Redmond-based tech giant has you covered with a packet full of over 200 new exclusive stock audio tracks, all copyright-free, and free to use for all users with a personal account.

Our content library has had a major improvement in the quantity and quality of audio tracks. You can now find over 200 new exclusive stock audio tracks, plus intro and outro, 30-second and 60-second versions to use as background music in your next video. These exclusive to Clipchamp songs came from artists and are so catchy you’ll find yourself bopping along to your video as you edit. Not only that, but they are all copyright free, and free to use. You can listen to the full library of new tracks in our stock library and read more about it here.   


If you prefer video podcasts, Microsoft makes it easier for you with these new Clipchamp enhancements:

  • You can now add multiple track items to the timeline at once. Simply hold down the Shift key to select multiple items in your media library, and then click the plus button at the top of the library to add them all to the timeline. This is great news for users creating slideshow videos that contain many media assets.  
  • When freehand editing on the stage, you can now edit multiple items at once. To give it a try, hold down Shift key to select multiple items on the stage and move them around, as well as resize and rotate until your heart’s content.  
  • To allow you to further customize the position of your media in the stage, we’ve added the ability to freely rotate any item.
