TikTok introduced a new editing feature last week, Stitch, which enables users to clip and integrate scenes from other users’ videos into their own.

The video-creation platform said in a blog post that much like its iconic Duets feature, Stitch “is a way to reinterpret and add to another user’s content, building on their stories, tutorials, recipes, math lessons and more.”

Also like Duets, TikTok users can decide whether or not other users can Stitch their content via the application’s privacy settings. They can do so for all videos or toggle the option for each video they create.

Videos where Stitch is incorporated will attribute the original creator in the caption, linking directly to the original video.

TikTok also provided instructions for using Stitch:

  • Find a video to Stitch and hit the “Send to” button.
  • Press the “Stitch” button.
  • Select up to five seconds from the video and trim the clip to your preferred duration.
  • Record your addition to the Stitched clip.
  • Start Stitching together your videos for expanded storytelling.

Now Introducing: STITCH! Make the ultimate collab with your fav creators ????
