Microsoft Clipchamp: The Brand kit feature is rolling out with extended elements to Microsoft subscriptions

The Microsoft Clipchamp Brand kit feature is being added to certain Microsoft subscriptions, allowing users to create, share, and use collections of brand assets. It will roll out between mid-July and late August 2024 for users with specific licenses, and it will support extended elements. No admin action is required before the rollout.

In Microsoft Clipchamp, the Brand kit feature enables users to create and share brand asset collections including colors, fonts and logos to use when creating videos. With this rollout, users with these subscriptions will have Brand kit as a standard feature in Clipchamp:

  • Microsoft 365 E3 and E5
  • Microsoft 365 Business Premium and Business Standard
  • Microsoft 365 A3 and A5

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 398992.

This message applies to Clipchamp for Windows and for the web.

When this will happen:

Targeted Release: We will begin rolling out mid-July 2024 and expect to complete by late July 2024.

General Availability (Worldwide): We will begin rolling out late July 2024 and expect to complete by late August 2024.

How this will affect your organization:

You are receiving this message because users in your tenants have licenses which enable access to these capabilities. This update will not impact any other parts of your Microsoft 365 license or Microsoft 365 admin center.

After this rollout, your users can expect these changes in Clipchamp:

  • “Official” Brand kits for an organization can be made available to all users in a tenant by placing the Brand kits in the Organization Asset Library (OAL). Admins designate who can save to the OAL Brand kit document library. Learn more: Creating and distributing org-wide brand kits in Clipchamp – Microsoft Support
