2X Faster, Lighter, Smoother In-app Video Player + Enhanced Scene-scrolling Experience⚡

Also, with these improvements to the player, the video should be rendered immediately for you to preview it, regardless of the number of assets used.

Note: Use Chrome for a superior experience.

In addition, the scene scrolling experience has now been further enhanced to make it easier for you to move a scene up or down using your mouse or trackpad when you’ve got a lot of scenes in your video, and many of these scenes don’t happen to be visible.

With the new scroll experience, simply click and drag a scene up or down to smoothly reveal the buried scenes and accurately place it b/w them.
