Well, you used to be able to go back to the filming screen and keep adding clips to the drafts as the simple way in the video above. While many TikTok users complaint that after the recent update of TikTok, they can’t find the "continue shooting" option anymore, that’s to say it allows the users to edit the draft, such as add text/sound/graphics, but not add more clips.
Now let’s make things clear. If you want to add more clips to your saved TikTok draft, you guys need to make sure that your TikTok draft video is filmed in the TikTop app using camera mode instead of quick. If the draft was filmed in Quick, you would only be able to edit the clip but not add any additional clips.
So if your TikTok draft meets the above conditions, you can add more clips to it if there’s still room. Simply open the video in your drafts, click back to go to the editing screen, and then back again, to go to the filming screen to add more clips to the draft on TikTok.
While many users try to add a clip to the draft but there's no option to "continue shooting" for them to add more footage. For those, just check the second way below to add more clips and edit your TikTok drafts. Keep reading.
