Spark Video - Feature suggestion

  1. Access fonts from Typekit

    It would be great to keep our branding a little more uniform and get to design posts with fonts we use regularly in Typekit.

  2. import photos and video ability from Google Drive

    It would be great to import photos and video from Google Drive. I know you have a Google photos import tool but our chromebooks and I am sure other schools chromebooks have "automatic save to Google Drive" turned on in their admin panels.

    Thank you for listening to our requests

  3. Videos from Google Photos

    Love how we can easily import photos from our Google Photos account, so would love to have the same choice/ability to insert videos that are in Google Photos as well. Thanks for such a great product that is easy for students to use!

  4. Closed Captioning

    Our faculty find Spark video easy to use and have amazing results. However, accessibility requires closed captioning. I suggest adding that feature and making it as easy to use as everything else!

  5. Enable uploading of pre-recorded audio

    We have a treasure trove of .mp3 files. Just as we can upload and trim an existing video file, it would be immensely helpful to be able to upload and trim an existing audio file.

    In Beta  ·  boghosia responded

    We have launched a private beta version of the feature to import pre-recorded audio/narration on iPhone & iPad. You should easily be able to import your narration audio clips from anywhere, irrespective of whether you created them on mobile or desktop. Spark Video iOS app integrates with iCloud files which in turn allows you to bring files from anywhere using Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, or any other cloud storage service. If you are interested in trying this feature out before it is publicly available, please sign up before the spots run out: https://forms.gle/dMu3C4xoQkDM3Q7r8
    We’ll follow up with an email with details on how to access the feature, and we’d appreciate your feedback in making this feature work for you. Thank you!

  6. Landscape mode for iPad app please!!! (Both Page & Post are landscape, why not Video?)

    This app is almost useless for students whose ipad cases and keyboards are all landscape. Both your other apps work in landscape mode and are beautiful, but our (68,000) students and teachers are quite frustrated with Video. As the videos are in 16:9 aspect, why in the world is the working mode portrait...jus' sayin'...

  8. Customizing a theme and transitions!

    There needs to be a way to AT LEAST apply those slide transitions within the 8 themes to my theme or mix and match! It's already there, can't believe this isn't an option especially for Premium accounts!

  9. How about some Emojis ?

    Hi !
    First of all, big fan of your work. I'm creative in advertising and have been using Adobe programs for a long time.
    There is a little issue that I stumble upon on your great app: it's impossible to add some emoji at the end of the video. I know it might not be your main concern. But, I tend to think that your app shares the same idea as the language of Emoji. It's quick, allows to convey a simple idea without having some words written. And you could target a specific audience of youtuber / snapchat users.

  10. Vertical Video Option

    It would be great to be able to create videos for Instagram Stories that are vertical instead of the Wide or Square options which make the video too wide for the Instagram story which means any video created has to be shrunk down so that it can be seen properly.

  13. Allow users to adjust the size of their brand logo

    Allow users to adjust the size of their brand logo both in the video stamp and on the outro page. One size does not fit all in the case of logos, adding this functionality would allow users to optimize the size of their brand to match the content.

  15. Remove motion from images

    I would love the ability to NOT have the slow zoom effect on my full screen images. This would make Spark a more useful tool as it would be appropriate for narrating a PP/Google Slides presentation.

    Under Review  ·  boghosia responded

    Hi all – thanks for the suggestion! If you use the theme Tidal, it doesn’t have motion on photo content. Give that a try!

  16. Provide option to stop slow zoom (Ken Burns) effect in videos

    The slow zoom ends up cutting off parts of images and frankly some people just don't like it. Would be great to have the option to turn that off.

  17. Upload mkv files

    When using the webcam on a Chromebook, the video file created is a .mkv, which is not supported. Since so many schools are 1-to-1 with Chromebooks, it'd be great if this file was supported.

  20. Video Split Screen Options:

    Hi, I wanted to request a feature in the video mode. I would love to be able to add a second video or an image in the second screen. Currently you can choose video/text/img and then text only.
