Vine, the short-form video sharing service owned by Twitter, has updated to make creating and sharing 6-second clips have more options thanks to a new set of editing tools for the app. The latest versions of Vine for Andorid and iOs include a new feature called "Sessions" that saves progress of a Vine. Users could previously only record one video and then return later to pick up at the last point, but Sessions allows for users to record multiple events without having to delete the previously recorded material. Up to 10 different "Sessions," or unfinished video drafts, can be saved at any one time.
"Time Travel" extends editing capabilities by allowing users to change the order of certain shots or remove them entirely. Once a video has been recorded, someone can tap the Edit button to delete a portion or select that it goes earlier or later in the timeline. This will allow users to record very brief intros for videos, build suspense, or get creative by altering the timeline of events. Vine previously had a strict linear fashion that required users to record their ideas in order and start over if something goes wrong, but this new feature will make it easier to prune certain aspects of the video.
