Summer is the best time to try out something new. New holiday destinations, new food tastes, and new features. Come closer to the screen as now we introduce you to the top new features released in the summer of 2022. 

The list of updates is pretty impressive:

  1. No limit on volume change;
  2. Integrated captions translation;
  3. External drag-n-drop right in the editor;
  4. New organization of Uploads menu;
  5. Blur stickers;
  6. Storyboard with all the changes;
  7. Text-to-speech improvements.

We know that you won’t be satisfied if we only list the changes, so let’s have a closer look at each point and study it. 

Go Beyond 100% Volume Limit

We know that sometimes even 100% of the recording volume might not be enough for your video to be perfect. In the latest update, we have gone beyond the limits; now, 100% of the volume is not a maximum; you can make it 150%, 175%, and even 200% from the original sound. 

Captions Translation

We know how boring it might be to add captions to your video. In the summer of 2022, we have made you work with captions as smoothly as possible. 

With you can:

  • Add auto-captions;
  • Translate them;
  • Upload a custom file with captions (*.srt or *.vtt);
  • Create a blank captions track for manual editing.

For summer 2022, captions translation is the newest feature, so let’s go together through each step. 

  1. Go to the Captions section.
  2. On the right side of the screen, click on +Add captions.
  3. Choose one of the variants of adding captions.
  • If you choose auto-captions, enable translation just as you add it.
  • If you want to add captions manually or from an upload file, click on the track you want to translate, choose the target language, and press the Translate button.

External Files Drag and Drop

You do not need to go through your computer libraries to add new files to your project. With the drag and drop feature, you can add new images, videos, and audio files with only one click. 

The algorithm is pretty simple and intuitive:

  1. Select the file you want to add.
  2. Drag it to the editing space.
  3. Drop it and wait for the system to upload it. 
  4. Then you can manage the file inside the editor. 

New Organization of Uploads Menu

This May, we have also updated the organization of the Uploads section in the video editor. We added a search box, sorting, and filter for a file type. 

Blur Stickers

One of the most beloved features of designers team is the stickers’ blur effect. We know that there are situations when you need to blur a logo of an exact shape or to make an accent on one exact part of the video, blur out sticker effect helps with it. 

In the Edit menu, you can choose from 5 options:

  • No effect
  • Blur in
  • Blur out
  • Pixel in
  • Pixel out

This feature is simple to use but opens new horizons for your creativity. You can play with different shapes, sizes, effect volume, entrance, accent and exit animation, and animation speed. 


If you add a lot of text tracks to your videos, you might have struggled with editing them. When you choose to manage all the text pieces within the storyboard, you see them in the order as they appear, change them without picking them up from the video, play exact parts and delete them. 

Text-to-speech Update

We always work not only on adding new features to the editor but also on updating the existing ones. This season we have renewed the text-to-speech adding dialog. 

Now adding a text-to-speech audio track, you can:

  • See the monthly limit for your account plan.
  • Choose the language.
  • The voice to pronounce the text.
  • The speed that you want to be applied to the text.
  • Choose the audio track.
  • Type in the text manually.
  • Or use the text from the project.

After completing all the fields, click on the Generate preview button. So you can listen to the generated speech and decide if it is ready to be applied to the video or make changes if needed.
