Don’t know where to begin? We’ve got you covered with a list of our top five apps that make editing and posting your videos to TikTok a breeze!

Why Should I Create TikTok Video?

You brand needs to develop a presence on TikTok! Still need more convincing? Well, with over 1 billion active monthly users and over 200 million app downloads in the US alone, TikTok is rapidly becoming the best place to engage with anyone between the ages of 13 and 30. So what are you waiting for? To get you started on the road to TikTok stardom, here’s Pentos' picks for the best TikTok video editors.

Best Tiktok Video Editing Tools

1. The TikTok App

Our first pick is the app itself! With its intuitive user interface and access to songs, custom filters and effects, it’s no wonder that the app’s built-in video editor takes the top spot on our list.

Best features

The native editor’s best feature is definitely the ability to apply in-app filters (think Snapchat) to your videos. Whether its applying digital makeup or modulating the pitch of your voice, TikTok’s filters are an integral part of the language of the app. Some filters, like ‘Long Face’, have even become memes in their own right and represent an easy avenue to engage with users in a way that is fun while remaining authentic to the platform.

Who should use the Tiktok InApp Editor?

Because it comes with the app itself, the TikTok video editor is definitely a tool designed for everyone. This accessibility does come with some trade-offs in terms of performance and available features, but for the average user the default editor is a great entry point for content creation.

2. Adobe Premiere Rush

For years, Adobe Premiere has been the leading name in professional video editing applications. And it’s clear that the reputation is well earned when using their latest entry for the Premiere product line: Adobe Premiere Rush. Designed with mobile video editing in mind, Premiere Rush puts the power of a professional editing bay in your pocket, making it the ideal choice for TikTok marketer’s who want to put some polish on their projects and content.

Best features

It’s hard to pick just one feature that stands out with Premiere Rush, because this bad boy is feature rich! With Premiere Rush you can easily splice video snippets, apply color correction, record and clean up custom audio, and insert animations and titles, all backed up by the power of Adobe Pro Tools. But the standout feature is built-in Adobe Cloud sharing, allowing you to seamlessly edit content on your phone and pick up your work on a tablet or computer. And of course, Rush comes with built-in social media integration, making sharing to TikTok as simple as clicking a button.

Who should use Adobe Premiere Rush?

Best features

Green Screen videos are a hugely popular way to grow your audience on TikTok, but the built-in effect that comes with the app can leave creators wanting more. That’s why we think VideoLeap’s Chroma Key, with its use of “AI edge awareness” is such an awesome feature!
