First off, it should be said that my school district LOVES WeVideo! And I very much appreciate all the front-end and back-end work that goes into every update. We, the users, benefit and never get to see all the work that goes into it all to make the magic possible!
I can see how the updated interface with the full-featured editor and simplified option has the potential to simplify certain processes for users, but it seems that searching media is now less streamlined. With the filter feature on the previous interface, it allowed for a more specific search (ex. music vs. sound effects). Since this is a question and answer forum, is there a way, with this new update, to differentiate between those 2 pieces of media when searching stock media?
And again, I understand that there is a lot of thought, consideration & gathering of input that goes into any update, but I was bummed to see that the term ‘Stock media’ has been removed. When working with students, it was great to see that industry-standard term being used. It led to a lot of great conversations about ‘what it is’ as well as what it means in the wider landscape of the very gray area around copyright in the internet age. I know it’s small, but I really appreciated it and the way that it presented WeVideo as a “prosumer” product.
Thanks for reading and for such a great product!
