The Xbox One's Game DVR and Upload Studio services have allowed gamers to share more of their gaming experiences than ever before. Without the need for any external products to record gameplay, users have already uploaded millions of game clips since the launch of the console. From showing off one's individual talents, to displaying some of the wackiest glitches in games, these clips have become a big part of the Xbox community. That goes for the TrueAchievements community as well, as over 100,000 clips had already been viewed
after two and a half days of the feature's implementation on the site.
Now the Upload Studio service has received a big update that's added a ton of the community's top requested features. Available as of right now, the update increases the amount of clips and/or effects allowed in a video to 15, while extending the total allotted run time to 30 minutes. Additionally, users now have access to a large library of transition slides, intros, outros, splash screens, templates, and other effects. You can either build a template from scratch, or use one of the custom designed ones, which feature games like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
, Forza Horizon 2
, and Sunset Overdrive
Check out the walkthough with Major Nelson for a full understanding of the new update:
To test out the new update, I threw together a Top Five video with some previously recorded clips and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to do. With the new features that are now available, I'm personally looking forward to seeing what kinds of videos that users start creating. For an idea at just one possibility, check out the video that I created in about ten minutes.
