Vine, the mobile app for shooting short, looping videos, is going all Hollywood on us.
Today it announced the addition of editing tools to allow users to act like movie producers, mixing, deleting and reordering scenes in order to spiff up those 6-second micro-movies.
Vine, which is owned by Twitter, helped propel a micro-video shooting craze when its app came out in January. Vine videos can only be six seconds long, and until now, users haven't been able to re-order clips they shot or even save them for use later. Now they'll be able to do both if they download the new iOS or Android versions of Vine.
Vine's iOS director, Ben Sheats, said in a blog post two new features have been added to the iPhone app allowing users to "maintain multiple posts in progress over time and edit your posts before you share them." Users can save up to 10 different Vine videos at one time and come back to them for editing later, Sheats said.
"We think these features offer new ways for people to express themselves and their creativity," Sheats added.
Since its January release, Vine has faced stiffening competition from Facebook's Instagram, which added video capability to its mobile app and allows editing and longer videos - up to 15 seconds.
