Apple’s quick video editing app, Clips, just got a big update today that adds new features that take advantage of the TrueDepth camera on the iPhone XS, XS Max, XR and iPad Pros.

The new update brings new Selfie Scenes, stickers, soundtracks more, making it even easier for iPhone and iPad users to create fun videos on-the-go.

Clips 2.0.5 adds six new Selfie Scenes which use the TrueDepth camera system to create a 360-degree background to transport users to a different scene. The new backdrops include a rainforest, a mad scientist’s lab and an action-packed scene from Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2. You’ll need an iPhone or iPad Pro with Face ID to take advantage of the scenes though.

Apple also added three new filters. There’s a new black-and-white comic book option, monochrome watercolor painting and an aged film look. New posters have also been added, letting users create title cards for their videos.

New stickers and text labels are included too so you can add emphasis and annotations to videos. And to make your videos more engaging, Apple tossed in 17 new royalty-free soundtracks to compliment your videos. Some of the vintage-inspired tracks and be adjusted so they automatically match the length of your video so you don’t even have to worry about trimming.

The Clips update is available now for free on the App Store.
