We all know that Instagram now supports video - so what does that mean for our favorite video app, Vine?
Well, the app recently added some amazing new features, including the ability to create stop-motion videos. The new camera features a grid option that can be turned on to help perfectly frame your shot, and it also has a new focus button for pinpointing an object in the frame!
Another great new feature is the ghost feature, which is how users can create stop-motion videos. When this mode is activate, a small “ghost” appears in the last frame of your video and remains onscreen, allowing users to perfectly line up your next shot based on where your old one left off. If you've ever tried a stop-motion video before, you know that was virtually impossible before!
But Vine didn't just enhance their video experience, it also made it easier to interact with other users. Instead of having to browse through a stream of Vine video or search through hashtagged ones, you can explore videos based on a particular category. There are 15 "channels" in total now: comedy, art and experimental, cats, dogs, family, beauty and fashion, food, health and fitness, nature, music, news and politics, special effects, sports, urban and weird. Choose your poison :)
You can also add a category to your Vine video when you upload it simply by pressing a new button that sits below the area to add location information. And you can also toggle between popular and new videos within each of these categories.
Another great new feature is the ability to "revine" someone else's Vine post to your followers, like reblogging on Tumblr. Don't want your posts reshared? Make your profile private and other users will need your permission to reshare.
