New and improved features based on feedback
Our team has been hard at work creating Scenery. We are testing the theory that by building a professional collaborative web video editor that combines asset management, editing and iterative review and approval into a single product we can help editors work more efficiently with team mates and stakeholders to create better video from anywhere, faster.
After some initial feedback at the start of the year, we implemented core editing features such as advanced trimming & sequencing, titles, transitions, effects, color correction and more. We have now opened scenery to editors for alpha testing and are inviting people who signed up here. We’re using a version of Rahul Vohra’s onboarding process for SuperHuman whereby we do a quick interview, then demo the product and watch as people try it. The feedback has been inspiring and humbling. We’re on the right track but we have a lot of work to do. Some highlights:
- The ability to share in-progress edits or the project itself is a huge potential unlock that greatly reduces time to evaluate footage and complete review cycles.
- The Scenery editing interface is fun an interesting but takes some getting used to. We are adding a more traditional timeline view and making refinements so it feels more familiar.
- We need more features around media organization so editors can start and stay organized as they are creating, including allowing stakeholders to create duration comments that can be viewed directly in the edit.
- People are interested in more animations with keyframe controls, this is on our roadmap for Q1.
I’m thrilled to be at the point where we’re seeing people use the platform and we’re getting this valuable feedback. Please ping me or sign up for access if you’re interested.
