Speed & Performance Improvements
As you may know, we've been investing a lot to improve Wisecut's performance and speed, and I'm excited by our progress on both fronts. We've made great strides in reducing the time spent on projects. Although you may not notice the difference for shorter videos, this is a huge win for longer videos. Of course, speed will still depend on other variables, like the size of the files and features chosen, but we're excited for what's to come. We've also made the user interface and experience MUCH faster when editing on the Storyboard tab, like when splitting or deleting scenes. If you missed our previous newsletters, here's a quick summary of the changes:
Product development in the past few months:
Launched Wisecut Shorts - Now you can easily turn your long-form talking videos into short, impactful clips with music, subtitles, and smart reframing from landscape to portrait layouts. We shared a video overview of how the feature works. Helping creators make content for TikTok, YouTube Shorts and Instagram Reels has long been a top user request.
Launched Auto Reframing - Identifies faces within videos to enable better punch cuts where the video zooms into a face to disguise jump cuts. This vastly improves how natural the edit feels as it mirrors a commonly used editing technique.
Advanced Storyboard Editing - We expanded its pioneering storyboard editing capabilities with better controls for scenes, overlays, and transcript-based editing.
Speed & Performance Improvements - We invested a lot to improve Wisecut's performance and speed, resulting in much greater efficiency of compute resources and lower latency for transcription and processing actions.
Additional Language Support - We extended language support to 13 languages for automated transcription and transcript editing. The 13 languages include: English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Filipino, Arabic, Hindi, Farsi, Dutch, Korean, and Japanese.
We are also excited to share that we are currently working on integrating new features and capabilities, including Generative AI. We believe this will bring new and exciting possibilities to our platform, and we can't wait to launch these new features in the near future.
