Microsoft has planned for Clipchamp to be a part of the Microsoft 365 suite ever since it was acquired. Additionally, Microsoft appears to have found the ideal balance between free and paid Clipchamp plans after integrating it into the suite and testing a variety of pricing options for it for a year. But what happens if you want free access to premium features?
The Video Editor app is still available, but Clipchamp has taken over as Windows’ default video editing app with the Windows 11 22H2 update. There are a few options available to you if you have already begun using Clipchamp and are interested in its premium features without actually purchasing its full-featured paid plan. The free Clipchamp premium method is as follows.
Clipchamp offered four plans, ranging in price from $0 to $27 per month, prior to the acquisition and up until a little while later. These plans were called Basic, Creator, Business, and Business Platinum. Additionally, the basic (free) version made it impossible for users to export in 1080p, which was extremely disappointing for novice editors.

Fortunately, all of that has been addressed as a result of extensive feedback. Not only have the plans changed, but you can also save videos in 1080p with the free version. There are only two Clipchamp plans available at the moment: the Free plan and the Essentials plan, which costs $11.99 per month.
The Essentials plan lets you use premium stock media, filters and effects, content backup, and a brand kit to manage logos and colors in addition to the watermark-free and 1080p exports that are also available to free users.
Some people might not be interested in the paid plan’s additional content. However, if you enjoy Clipchamp’s offerings, you can always try something else.
Clipchamp is still a new video editor for the majority of Windows users, so it hasn’t yet taken over the world. However, users who have jumped on the bandwagon might also want to check out premium content. However, not everyone may appreciate the $11.99 per month cost of the content.
That’s where some of the additional deals and offerings come in. Clipchamp has recently been included in the Microsoft 365 suite by Microsoft. Microsoft 365 subscribers can take advantage of this offer to gain free access to premium features like effects and filters.
Here is a list of the filters that you will get with a Microsoft 365 subscription:
- Warm countryside
- Pastel dreams
- Winter sunset
- Cool tone
- Soft B&W
- Cool countryside
Additionally, you will also unlock five effects (or transitions):
- Digital glitch
- TV interference
- Liquid swirl
- Liquid drops
These additional premium effects and filters will be the only items included in the Microsoft 365 premium package for subscribers. The Brand kit’s premium images, audio, and video stock, logo, fonts, and colors, as well as the capability to backup content, will continue to be behind the paywall of the Essentials package.
Only these premium Clipchamp effects and filters differentiate the Microsoft 365 plan from the free basic plan. However, given that Microsoft planned to integrate Clipchamp into the Microsoft 365 suite at the time of the acquisition, it is highly likely that additional features will be added and unlocked for Microsoft 365 subscribers.
Additionally, Clipchamp has partnered with Chromebook to offer free premium features to Chromebook users. Using a code, you can unlock this two-month offer. Therefore, you are also in luck if you recently purchased a Chromebook. For instructions on how to activate your extended free trial for two months, see the section that follows.
As previously stated, you can obtain Clipchamp premium for free in either a Microsoft 365 subscription or a Chromebook-specific code. The free Clipchamp premium method is as follows.
Method 1: With Microsoft 365
Simply logging in with a Microsoft 365 subscription-based account is all that is required to gain access to the premium effects and stock media that are included in the Microsoft 365 package for Clipchamp.
The premium package will be unlocked once you log in, and the changes will appear on Clipchamp’s pricing plans page.
Alternately, if you want to upgrade but do not currently have a subscription to Microsoft 365, you can purchase one on the Microsoft 365 website .
The subheading “Video editor with premium filters and effects” mentions the Clipchamp premium offerings. They are not mentioned in any other way prior to the purchase.
However, the same can be confirmed in the future from the Clipchamp upgrade page. Your access to the Clipchamp premium package will be granted once the subscription has been activated.
Method 2: With Chromeperks (for Chromebook users only)
Chromebook users can use a code to get their extended free Clipchamp trial for two months:
Chromeperks | Clipchamp Code Link

- Log in to Clipchamp with an existing account or create a new one.
- Select “Upgrade.”
- Choose the plan to test out for two months for free.
- Finally, select your method of payment on the payment page, apply the Chromeperk code provided to you, and click Continue.
Your extended free Clipchamp trial for two months will now be active.
