More Editor UX/UI improvements
This release includes a major upgrade to the editor timeline behaviour to ease the process of adoption from those coming from other NLEs.
Blackbird has focused on a number of user interface design and functionality improvements aimed at easing adoption for those coming from other tools and speeding up operation of the existing workflows. The ultimate goal is to improve end user experience.
Further improvements in January and beyond include new fade controls, new colour palette, revised trim handle positioning. In addition to these core usability and look/feel improvements, we are also enabling access to a greater level of control within the video effects in the platform with effects sliders and advanced keyframing of these as well as access to a full RGB colour adjustment effect.
The latest upgrade to the Blackbird platform is due to be released 5th December 2023.
This update will be made available during a maintenance window of 11:00-16:00 GMT (6:00-11:00 EST) on the day.
