Twitter Publishing

New in Viz Story 1.8, is the Twitter publishing target, which with minimal set up allows users to publish video directly to their Twitter accounts.

Work within publishing target limits

Some publishing targets, such as Twitter and Facebook, limit the file size, or duration of a video.  Viz Story shows these limits on the timeline, so that users can work within those parameters, and create stories with the confidence that they will not fail to publish.  This helps with versioning and ensures your efforts are not wasted creating a story that is too big for your selected publishing destination.

Smart audio handling

Continuing to make life easier for users, is the addition of smart audio handling, which will auto-detect video footage sources with mono audio and offer the choice to convert to stereo sound when you add the media to the timeline, which is great for users of consumer-generated footage, such as from mobile phones. 

Thumbnail selection & preview

Improved workflow for selection and preview of thumbnail/poster frame, makes it simpler to choose an eye-catching frame from your finished story, to publish along with the video for publishing target that support thumbnails.

Full details are available in the user guide and release notes. Further information is included with the Viz Story installer, available on the Vizrt FTP following the path: Products/VizStory/Latest Individual Installers.
