RELEASE NOTES

March 2020

  • VOD Clipping and Clip-from-a-Clip VOD assets which are uploaded from Vualto Control Hub and previously generated clips can now be selected in CLIP2VU and clipped from, much in the same way that Live channels can.

    A VOD Browser button has been added to the top of the channel list, allowing you to search for and select existing Clips and VOD uploads. When a asset is selected, it is loaded into the current clipping project.

  • Multi-Source Stitching Combine any number of segments from different live channels, existing clips, and VOD assets into a single clip.

    Simply select a different source while making a clip and a new segment will be added with that source that you can clip from.

    Possible use cases include promotional bumpers, endslates, and simple video editing.

  • Make GIFs and JPEGs from Clips Make any number of animated GIF or JPEG images from your clips.

    In the Edit Clip page, the player now has a clipping interface which lets you:

    • Make a JPEG from the currently displayed frame.
    • Make a GIF from the time range selected in the player.

    Once generated, JPEGs and GIFs can be previewed and saved from your browser to your computer.

  • Fixes and improvements This release contains a number of fixes and improvements:

    • The tables in Library now have more reliable and consistent pagination
    • The player now remembers your volume setting
    • When adding a Scheduled Publication, the date field now respects different timezones
    • Various other bug fixes and refinements

January 2020

  • Scheduled Clipping

    Set up automatic captures of channels using start and end times.

    Times can be in the past within the channel’s archive window, or any time in the future. Captured clips can then be published to social media like any other clip.

  • Scheduled Publications

    Clip publications can now be created with a date and time to publish on. Set up your publication, then they will be automatically published to and appear on social media on the specified date and time.

  • New Clipping Player

    We have rewritten the clipping video player from the ground up with new controls which sit outside the video window.

  • New Clipping Controls

    The live clipping player now has step control buttons. You can easily go forwards and backwards by frame, second, or multiples of seconds to get the exact clip you want.

    Added buttons to set the clip In and Out points to the current player position. So what you currently see will be the first or last frame of the clip.

    Added keyboard controls to go forward and backwards in frames and seconds. You can also press I and O to set the clip In and Out points to the current video position.

  • Custom Clip Thumbnails

    You can download and upload custom thumbnails to clips after they have been generated.

  • New Channel Admin interface in Vualto Control Hub

    You can now easily set up and reorder Clipping Channels from your existing Live Events in the Vualto Control Hub CMS.

    Custom channel titles.

    Supports use of a specific Playout Profile for a Clipping Channel.
