  • Hi Enscape Team,


    Our team has quite struggle with the video editor. Not sure the reason whey the interfaced kept changing through the past two years.

    The previous video editor method and interface was easy to understand and work with. Now, there are a few things just so hard to understand. And we had to spend time to watch youtube to seek our answers!

    Escape has been a great tool for our practice for internal communication, presentation and marketing. To be honest, we love enscape so much, and it is very sad to have this experience. Every time when any software changes its interface, it costs recourse and overhead of the firm to learn and adopt. It is not practice friendly if we had to expect to spend office time to search on youtube on how to use the new interface with new updates.


    Anyhow, here is the question we couldn't find answers:

    1. Not able to edit last keyframe time stamp? Do we need to add a fake last key frame, then use other video editing software to cut the video?

    2. We notice we could get out from key frame to edit the total duration. But when the total duration is edited, then every key frame duration got affected (either shrinked or extended)

    3. Can we disable the auto duration assign to the keyframe when we add a new key frame? I think it is base on the time we take to find the new key frame? or it is based on how far the new frame is away from the previous one. This is the area we dont need AI smart.

    4. Can we have the simple drugging option of the duration interface added back. Or just simply have previous editing Three click plus typing the number takes longer than just a simple drug. The previous interface is very much straight forward and saved us a lot time in editing. This clicking and typing method simply cost 3 secs more to edit each keyframe.


    We much appreciate if we could some help for No.1 and No.2.


    Many thanks,


    Andrew

  • I agree with Atleiersun that the current video editor, as of September 22, 2022, is difficult to use. My recommendation is to offer two versions of the video editor. Allow the user of Enscape to choose between the current version and a more 'professional' version when editing a video.


    The 'professional' version should include time arrows such as pause, fast-forward, reverse play, etc., during preview mode. As much as I enjoy using Enscape and prefer it to competing software, the video editor is currently the weakest feature and I find myself avoiding using it as much as possible; what a shame.


    Thank you,
