Vine updated for iOS and Android with improved camera features

Vine for iOS and Android

Vine has been updated to iOS and Android, and has received a much need update to improve its video recording capabilities. Until now users are only allowed to capture 6 second Vine videos using the camera. Following the update, users have the ability to upload previously created videos as vines from their gallery or camera rolls.

After you've imported the desired video clip, Vine now allows you to trim it frame by frame and cut out the unwanted parts. However, 16:9 videos are not being cropped – you can only slide them left or right and choose which part will be displayed in your 4:3 Vine clip. Nevertheless, the imported clips can be duplicated and rearranged to your every whim.

Additionally the Vine update also includes various other improvements to video-capture. For example you will now be able to lock both the focus and the exposure of the front camera, similar to the way you can do so with your main rear shooter. In addition, you can “undo” while shooting a vine, which automatically plays “your last clip”, turn on the flash to aid you in locking the exposure, and a new grid overlay, which helps you level your device in order to achieve a seamless 360-degree video panorama.

You can download the update directly on your device through its respective app stores or by using the following links.
