There are several different ways to make a TikTok video but the easiest way is in the app. It saves you from having to download a different app or transfer files to your computer to edit in something like Adobe Premiere Pro or Blackmagic Davinci Resolve. Plus, you can add trending sounds, text, and filters which will make your video more exciting.

Thanks to a recent update, TikTok videos can now last up to 3 minutes which is perfect if you want to post more in-depth tutorials. You can still opt for a 15-second or 60-second video if you prefer to make shorter videos that can be more engaging.
