Powerful Editing
Trim imported videos with frame-by-frame precision, and apply seamless transitions between clips to create a professional montage. Then place creative elements like captions and stickers exactly where you want them. 

Speed Changes
Choose where and when to speed up or slow down your videos to add a little drama to your scene. 

Want to create a Story that looks like a newscast? That picture-in-picture layering is simple in Story Studio. Pull images and videos from your camera roll and time these layers throughout your project. 
AR Lenses
Add stunning visual effects with Snapchat’s augmented reality Lenses. Choose from a large library of Lenses that transform faces, bodies, and whole scenes.

Music and Sounds
Access the entire Snapchat Sounds library including a catalog of licensed tracks and user-created audio. Pull in sounds you've created on Snapchat or elsewhere to get the best of both worlds.
Total Flexibility
Work on multiple projects at once, and go where the inspiration strikes. Projects in Story Studio will auto-save, so you can re-edit and revisit past projects as much as you like. 

Once your video is ready for an audience, share it directly into Snapchat from the Story Studio app, or download and post it on other permitted platforms—videos you create in Story Studio are not watermarked.
