Next up is editing. This is a feature you’ve been asking for. Our team has been hard at work making this happen for you, and wow have they delivered! It’s never been this easy to create montages, add memes, text, and personalize your clips before you share those glorious videos with your friends.
Our old editor —
And here’s the new one
You can even combine uploaded clips and local clips into montages together! No more file hassle :)
Music Volume Slider
When you’re selecting music, you want it to vibe with the feel you’re trying to create in your clip. That means, the volume has to be just right. Maybe your friends were a bit too extra on discord so you want the music to take center stage over their shrieks, or maybe you want the in game sounds to take center stage and only want the music in the background. That’s why we added volume controls so you can decide just how loud you want the music.
For even more precision, you can now preview songs and adjust their placement in your clip all from the editor via the sidebar and the music timeline.
Don’t let your memes be dreams. With our new text editor, you can add text on your clips to meme on your friend’s epic fails, showcase the moves you made in Rocket League, or anything else you want to say in order to highlight your humor and killer skills. When adding text, you can select different text colors, background colors, text sizes and more!
Drag and drop files & import clips from long recorders.
Image and Gif Overlays
In addition to text, we’ve added the capability for you to upload images and gifs as overlays to your clips. Maybe you’re playing with your friends and dominating the enemy so hard that you need a meme image to describe exactly what you’re feeling. Or maybe you had the biggest oof moment of your life, and can only share your pain with your audience with a gif, because sometimes text just won’t cut it!
We hope you enjoy these updates. We’re going to continue to add incredible features to editing and can’t wait to see what you create!
