We're always making improvements to Synura, and this page is the best place to follow along with what's new.
It’s now possible to invite collaborators to work with you on video projects. If you invite someone who doesn’t have an account yet, they will receive an invitation in their email. You’ll also receive an email if you are ever added or removed from a group.
Note that for this first version it is only possible to invite people to your default group, which contains all your projects, and it is not possible yet to create new projects. These are features we want to add soon, but we’re looking for your feedback first on what you’d like to see next.
It’s been a busy week over here at Synura. This time we’ve added the ability to choose which image from your assets you’d like to represent each project, and made a lot of performance improvements.
Apart from that, there are a couple of big things we’ve been working on that we’ll be sharing soon. First is the ability to invite collaborators, and the second is enabling automatic video processing features. Stay tuned for more details, and let us know if you have any feedback.
You can now select which asset within your project you’d like to represent the project as its title image, used at the top of the page and in the project index. This should make it easier to identify your projects at a glance when you’ve set up a lot of them.
There are some tasks in a project that are associated with different phases. Some might be done in pre-production, post-production, or elsewhere. You can now optionally associated tasks with phases, and they will appear organized in this way. This should make it even easier to organize your projects.
When working with audio files, you can now preview them directly from within Synura without having to download them first.
Happy Wednesday! Today we have several changes we’re excited about, but perhaps the most interesting is a new onboarding experience to help orient yourself in the app.
You can now enter a todo description (in the format hh:mm:ss) into a task for any video file and it will turn the timecode into a link to jump to that point in the player. This should make it much easier to describe what needs to be done in a todo.
Now, when you log into the app for the first time, you’ll be presented with a walkthrough that will help you orient yourself in the product. Once your workflow is done, we’ll keep an icon in the bottom right that you can open any time to re-run the walkthrough, find out how to contact us, and more.
We’ll also be surveying early access users after a day or two, and then check in every couple months to ask how things are going.
It’s important to keep track of not just of your delivery date, but also when you need to finish pre-production, production, and post. Now, you can easily track due dates for each production phase in the app.
When you’re uploading a file, you can now see the progress of the upload, upload multiple files at once, and continue browsing in the app without interrupting the upload (as long as you don’t refresh the page.)
https://before the site name. Now, if you enter a URL without it, it will do the right thing and add it for you.
You can now track to-do tasks on specific assets, in addition to tasks for the whole project. This will ensure the context is more clear for tasks you create.
It’s important to keep track of external links related to your project, and you can now do that all in one place.
There were only a couple of days between our early access launch and the end of the iteration, so there are just a few updates this time. Thanks to everyone who came to our Discord and shared your feedback!
You can now set a much longer project description. This allows you to use it as a place to store notes or other project details.
Synura is here to help you tell your story with video!
In talking to many of you, we have heard that one of the hardest things when getting started with a new video channel is simply organizing your plans and projects. That’s why, for our early access launch, we focused on providing the structure you need to create a plan for your channel and deliver on it. You can already:
To sign up for early access, visit console.synura.com.
Projects help you organize the videos you’re working on. You can create a separate project workspace for each video, and each project keeps track of which phase of the production process you’re in. You can use the description field to keep track of any important metadata like due dates, goals, and so on.
Any video project is going to have a collection of to-dos that need to be done. Especially when you’re working on a few videos at once, it can be easy to lose track. Synura helps by including a list of tasks, which can be checked off as they are completed, in every project.
One of the most important parts of organizing your video projects is just getting everything into one place, and Synura can help you with that. You can upload and track versions of any file, not just videos.
