Sometimes one little bean can have a bunch of tasty peas!
It's been a while since our last update, and we have a lot of new features for you this time. We're calling this a HUGE update; some people say it's our biggest.
- Help Center & Community
- Snapping & Guides
- Video Upload & Convert
- Fixed Content
- Lottie Animations!
- Develop in React
You now have a powerful and easy-to-use animation tool which will bring new life to your Vev projects! Trigger your animations whenever you want, or when the user does something. Instruct your widgets to scale, rotate, move or change colors. Loop it, time it, ease it – it's easy!
To learn more about how to animate your widgets, go read about the Animation Add-on here!
Help Center & Community
We are now launching a completely revamped Help Center and a Spectrum Community where you can get in touch with the Vev Team!
rThe Help Desk will be continuously updated with more information, guides and examples. We'd love for you to join our community and help us get better by giving us feedback on what you would like to see next from us.
This is a fun new feature which will help our newest users get familiar with Vev. Complete all the steps and see what happens!
(Hint: Nothing really happens yet, but you'll probably be more skilled at Veving than you were before)
Snapping & Guides
While it's unbelievably fun and intuitive to free-hand draw your content in Vev, sometimes it's nice to get some help aligning items properly. Open the Snapping & Guides tool by clicking on the left toolbar (shortcut: SHIFT/CMD+G). You can also quickly toggle Guides on/off using Super+G.
Video Upload & Convert
Finally, a simple solution to upload and convert your videos without any hassle. Simply drag your videos into Vev and we'll do the hard work for you. We'll bring your video files to the cloud and convert them to a set of formats which should play on any device.
We added a button to fix your content. Select one of your sections – preferably one with a background image or gradient – then click the Fix Content button, enter Preview mode and scroll down!
We now support Lottie Animations in Vev. Read more about Lottie in the Lottie Documentation here, and how to use it in Vev here (soon!).
Develop in React
Developing your own components in Vev has never been cooler than it is now. We'll let you write and re-use your own React components in Vev. Our Code Editor is complete with JSX/TypeScript support, code hints, snippets, and much more. Head over to our Developer section to learn more.
Looking forward to
- Constraints! Control how your elements relate to each other, letting you create more dynamic and robust templates for your Content Editors.
- Account Management
- Feature Requests – bring us your request!
Happy springtime from everyone in the Vev team!
