Vine Announces New Creation, Editing Options

Aug 21, 2014

Vine, the short video creation and sharing app, announced new editing and creation tools on its blog. Now users can use existing videos on their phones to create new Vines. They can also use a new editing tool to help create these new videos.

The blog says, "Simply tap the scissors from the preview screen to edit your Vine and try out new tools such as the duplicate button and mute button. My favorite new tool is the preview and undo button - with one tap, you can preview your last clip right from the capture screen, and if you don't want to use it, you just tap the same button again to undo it."

Users can also tap on a wrench to reveal new camera tools. Gigaom says, "The features show that Vine is evolving technically, but also show how the company is thinking beyond its user base, and as a platform for marketers. After all, at some point the app needs to make money."
