The popular six-second video app has just received a well-needed update. Whereas app updates can at times result in hardly-noticeable differences or changes, the newest for Vine is different and welcomes a couple important, sought-after improvements.
First and most foremost, it will now be possible to ‘draft’ video clips. Before and as it’s been, constructing a Vine video was a one-shot deal. A user would shoot up until the allotted six-seconds was reached, then either decide if they wanted to keep it or trash it.
Now, a new feature called “Sessions” allows users to save portions of Vine videos or even complete Vines, for publishing at a later time. Users can save up to ten clips in this folder, which can be accessed in the bottom right of a Vine capture screen.
Lastly, a new “Time Travel” feature allows for Viners to swap around shots in their videos prior to posting them. While filming, users can now tap the green progress bar, scanning through all of what’s been recorded. If it consists of various shots, the shots can be rearranged or erased individually. I’d personally find most use for this feature in the event that I’d need to get rid of a clip and keep the rest of my good Vine content.
What duo you think of the features in Vine? “Yes, bring it on,” or “Too complex, keep it simple?” I’m a bit up in the air.
