Vine has introduced a new ‘sessions’ feature, which means you can now save up to 10 Vines for editing or adding footage to at a later date.

You can also play around with the timeline of individual saved Vines by reordering separate shots, which means the user can fix any mistakes in the recording process.

An earlier update introduced ghost, which allowed the user to check the composition of the frame by faintly superimposing the previous shot over the screen.

These updates only serve to make Vine more user-friendly and professional. The upshot is we’re likely to see much better quality Vines in the future, as users now have the ability to re-edit and polish their own work.

These improvements arrive shortly after Instagram added video functionality to its photography app. Some saw Instavid as having a major advantage over Vine – 15 second length, choice of cover photo, Instagram’s own selection of filters – but with Vine amassing 40m users in just nine months, Vine is still a viable playground for brands to exploit.
