New Photo & Video History Setting

New Photo & Video History Setting

Introducing our own version of a time machine – Video History!

We recently added an ability to look back and use prior saved versions of your Photo/Video timelines!

How it Works

Once you have made at least one save to your video, there will be a History button. Click it and you will see prior versions of the video. So, if you made changes or something happened to your video, and you want to revert back to a prior sequence, just select one of the other saves. It will load, and then hit Save & Close.

That’s it!  Enjoy.
