How to create a clip of a Switcher Studio video and share to Facebook as a Story or Reel
Written by Jacy Cruz
The Clips feature in Switcher Studio makes it easy to trim your video recording and share the clip directly to Facebook Stories or Reels. Sharing to Facebook Reels from Switcher Studio is limited to vertical (9:16) videos (it's not required for Stories, but it's highly recommended), and sharing to Facebook Reels is limited to iPhones.
There are two steps to share a clip to Facebook Stories or Reels:
Step 1: Creating a Clip in Switcher Studio
You can create a clip immediately after recording a video, or you can go back to a previous recording and create a clip. For either scenario, you will first go to the Clip Editor and then make any adjustments.
