Vine has pushed out a new update that adds two features deemed by many to be missing from the initial launch: drafts and editing, or as they are officially termed, Sessions and Time Travel. Collectively, the new features should make it easier for users to create the perfect Vine.
With Sessions, Vine users can now maintain multiple drafts – up to 10 at any given time – to comb through and edit at a later date. Previously, users were unable to access their feed or other sections of the app once a new video had been started. To designate a post as a draft or access previously stored Sessions, simply tap the new icon in the bottom right corner of the camera.
The Time Travel editing feature allows Vine users to remove, reorganize or replace any shot within a post at any time. When shooting a clip, you should now see a green bar and an edit option when in preview mode. This means you can now fix any mistakes in clips, something that wasn’t possible before.
The last update for Vine came in early July just two weeks after Instagram launched their competing video service. That update included a new camera interface, the ability to ‘re-Vine’ posts from other users and the addition of categories to sort clips based on content like comedy, nature, music and yes, even cats.
The latest update is available as of writing for Android and iOS.
