NEW YORK (Hypebot) – A platform that has traditionally focused on visuals, Vine is working to make itself more musician friendly including, among other things, a button for identifying tracks used in videos and a new feature called Snap to Beat, which enables users to smoothly create loops.
Vine is now more music-friendly
Vine, your favorite place for 6-second looping videos, has just introduced some new features that will make the platform even more useful for musicians.
Among the additions is a button that allows users to see what track is being played in the video and a list of featured, pre-licensed tracks that video creators can use in their vines. Most useful for DIY musicians who create their own music, though, is a feature called Snap to Beat. With Snap to Beat you can easily create seamless loops.
Here’s what Vine says of the tool:
Once you’ve chosen a song by tapping the music note from the Details screen, Snap to Beat identifies how much of the song to use to make a seamless loop and then trims your video to fit that clip. With seamless audio looping in our mobile apps, you can make Vines that sound awesome and feel like magic — something that’s only possible with Vine.
You can edit audio separately by turning off “Snap to Beat.” This will give you more control and allow you to add sound effects at the end of the loop (like in the video below).
Since its launch, Vine has focused on the visuals. Now they’re making it easier to create videos with great sound too.
