  • How to screen record your (draft) TikTok video


Before starting ‚úč

The instructions below only apply if you're creating your video directly on the TikTok app.

If you created your video outside of TikTok using other video editing software/tools (ie. iMovie, Final Cut Pro, etc.), upload your content directly to #paid for review and approval.


Why do I need to screen record my (draft) TikTok video?

If you are creating your video directly on TikTok, you'll notice that TikTok doesn't let you download the video unless it's posted. As a result, you might have trouble uploading the video you created to #paid for the brand to review.

As a workaround, use your phone to screen record the draft video you created on TikTok and upload that to #paid.
