In 3.3 we’ve made a number of improvements and changes to annotations in the hopes of making your life a little bit easier.

Naming annotations

You can now add a name to your annotation. This should make it easier to keep track of which annotation is which.To do this, double click on the name under the selected annotation in the annotation toolbar on the right hand side. An unnamed annotation will just have <no name> as a place holder. A text box will appear, type in the name you want and check Save Changes . The name will now appear in the annotation timeline beside the annotation.

Audio wave form

Adding an audio annotation will now add an accurate depiction of the audio in that clip. That will make it easier for you to see where spikes in audio are.

Arrow opacity

You can now change the transparency of an annotation arrow. The opacity slider lets you decrease or increase the transparency.

Timeline shortcuts

We’ve added some of the shortcuts that could be used in Review to the annotation timeline. To learn more about how to edit these short cuts check out our previous blog post on keyboard shorts

New context menu options

Some new options where added to the menu that appears when you right click on an annotation.

Video: Start Here – this allows you to change where the clip starts. This is like a cut down version of what you can do in the Video Report tab

Video: End Here – like Start Here, you can now end the clip at the point you’ve currently selected.

Edit Gap: Is you right click on a gap you can now edit it. This means that the end of the gap will be removed and you’ll be able to select a new end point
