VSCO is using real-time image processing called SENS for its video editing tool, which is able to support all iOS video formats up to 30 fps at 4K.

The VSCO photo editing app is well-known for its wide range of adjustable filters and extensive editing tools, and this is the first time that functionality has expanded to encompass video.


For the time being, VSCO is limiting the video editing tool to its VSCO X members, who must pay a $19.99 annual subscription fee to get access to premium features. According to VSCO, a VSCO X membership includes new exclusive tools that are introduced each month, along with more than 100 VSCO presets and advanced controls.
"VSCO's mission is to help people become better creators, and video is a creative frontier we're increasingly passionate about and focused on," explains Flory, of the new tool's launch. "Video editing for VSCO X members is a first step into what we see as limitless possibilities for video editing tools on VSCO."
Access to video editing will be rolling out to VSCO X members soon. Subscribers will need to launch the app and tap the banner announcing the video editing tool to access it.

VSCO Adds ‘DSCO’ GIF Creation, User Blocking, and Post Favorites

Photography app VSCO has announced a handful of new features for its users, centering around the addition of its separate GIF creating DSCO app [Direct Link] directly into the main VSCO app. Thanks to the inclusion, users can now create looping images and post them to their VSCO feeds.

Similar to the camera wheel options on Instagram and in the iOS Camera, users can tap DSCO at the bottom of the camera in VSCO to switch over to the video format, record a moment, and upload it to VSCO. The company has shared a collection of DSCO examples on its website for users to check out.


In addition to DSCO, a few new community-side features have been added into the VSCO iOS app, including the ability to block unwanted users from interacting with your content. VSCO images are public so blocked users can still view any image they want, but they can no longer follow users who have blocked them, repost, or favorite their images or DSCO videos.

To further facilitate an environment of positive feedback, VSCO has added the ability to favorite posts between users without the public at large being able to see favorites. VSCO said that this makes favorites "a private acknowledgement between two people," and lets its users take bolder creative risks without the worry of like counts that other platforms have.
VSCO is a place to take creative risks and share what you love, not what you think others will love. This is why VSCO does not publicly show your follower count or how many people reposted your image — it’s where you can be you.
The company said that the newly announced features will be rolling out over the next couple of weeks. In December, VSCO added RAW image capturing and editing on iOS 10 devices.

VSCO Update Adds RAW Image Capturing and Editing on iOS 10 Devices

Popular photography app VSCO recently announced that users can now capture and edit images in RAW on the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, iPhone 7, 7 Plus, and iPhone SE, while running iOS 10. Apple introduced the ability for third-party apps to support RAW shooting and editing in iOS 10, and began highlighting the professional photography feature soon after the launch of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Now, VSCO announced that its iOS app will support full RAW capturing, importing, and editing. The company's blog post said that RAW offers "greater creative control" over an image, and users will be able to better adjust color balance and recover any lost highlight details in the process. RAW image capture isn't supported on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but users of those devices will be able to import and edit RAW images.

In our latest update, full RAW image support includes RAW capture, importing and editing, offering greater creative control by preserving an image’s original data and capturing exactly what your camera sees. With RAW, you’re able to recover lost highlight detail, freely adjust color balance, and bring out the full potential of RAW images from both your iPhone and DSLR camera.
Another new feature introduced in the update is called "Film X," and VSCO said that it will "give you the full expressive power of film itself," leading to customized film modeling and high image quality through two new controls called "Character" and "Warmth." Film X is an exclusive feature to the new membership plan, VSCO X, which runs for $19.99/year and grants users new "entitlements" each month like camera presets and advanced controls.
