Turn on safe zones
When adding captions, stickers or text, turn on 'safe zones' on the right side of the screen for YouTube or TikTok to see which areas might be obstructed. These are just guides, they won't show up in your final video.
When you're happy with your video, you can render it. You can now share your video – that is perfectly suited for TikTok or YouTube – with the world!
Don't miss the action
After spending time and effort perfecting your video, the last thing you want is that all the action gets covered by TikTok's like button. With our safe zones, you can already see whilst editing the video which part of the screen will be concealed – so you can work around it.
For TikTok and YouTube
Different social platforms have different locations for their like, share and comments buttons. You can enable safe zones for both TikTok and YouTube at once, so you can make the perfect video, fit for all socials, in just one edit.
Clear and easy guides
By turning on the safe zones option, our clear and easy to use guides allow you to quickly see which area of the video will be covered by the interfaces for YouTube or TikTok – so that you can make sure that none of your text, captions or stickers will be hidden by their buttons.
