“Subtitles in progress” is displayed instead of “Burning in progress”. 

If the file isn’t uploading for a specific reason such as special characters or symbols – notification message added to display.

Files used to just duplicate and never get through the upload process.

Subtitling button now appears when you just log in to the software, rather than just in transcript panel.

August 2021

The button did not work properly. 

Google was auto-generating generic user emails when registered using “Google Sign In” button.

Subtitle preview window was not responsive when using non-standard video dimensions (like vertical phone footage). Resulting in hidden download button, therefore making the subtitled video unavailable to download.

When the transcoding process comes to an end, the platform does not react and freezes the media player.

When clicked on “Start Burning Subtitles” button, occasionally it did not work. 

Nova A.I. undergoes constant improvement to be as user friendly as possible. Therefore Sign In with Google was the next logical step in streamlining the signup and confirming your account process. Saving you some extra time. 

As Nova A.I. is progressing and implementing new features, we feel that it is crucial to install new, better designs to make the platform not only useful, but also, fun to use.

#1. Sign In window design update.
#2. Pricing page design update.

Nova A.I. offers a free analysis test ride without subscribing to any of our plans. Every new user has 5 minutes of video to upload for free. When the 5 minutes of analysis expires, in order to use the platform further, the user must enter a Free-trial mode by confirming their details or subscribe to a paid “Pro” plan.

The possibility to type in the starting timecode of the original footage, so that the exported timecodes from Nova are matched up with the original footage when importing into other editing software

July 2021

You can now upload and transcribe mainstream audio files. Export the transcriptions as a text file for further use.

Added an SFTP upload option via “Video Dashboard” window for better UX.

Bug #1: Every time Subtitles (in Video Dashboard) and Burn Subtitles (in Subtitles modal window) are clicked a Console error in back-end occurs.
Bug #2: Preview video is modal window, remains the first you chose and no other video can be selected.
Bug #3: Downloaded version of subtitled video is correct in font size, but always blue coloured subtitles.
Bug #4: After a video finishes loading a Console error in back-end occurs when burning subtitles.

Bug #1: Celebs disappear after selecting an emotion.

To your convenience, PromoMii’s team have installed a “Burn Subtitles” feature. Now you can hardcode subtitles into your video directly on the platform. You can also edit your subtitles inside the platform. No editing experience needed. 

Bug #1: First 13 seconds of subtitles in the text file was shown at the end of the file rather than at the beginning.
Bug #2: .srt import to Adobe Premiere failed due to headline error.

Bug #1: Under a condition of 3 search parameters selected, deleting no 1. resulted in deleting all 3.
Bug #2: Inability to deselect a moderated label.

June 2021

A video has been pre-uploaded to Nova for new users so they can test the platform without their own material. You can now learn how to use the software without needing to subscribe first. When ready, you can upload your own video and put your A.I. credits to best use.

Issues deselecting some labels have been fixed.

May 2021

A message saying that the video list is empty was displayed even though a video was uploaded and analysed.

Filenames that included characters like @ – $ – / – ^ or special language letters like Ś – Š – Ž was not supported by Nova.

The PromoMii team understands that every video professional has different needs. Nova now allows you to gather various labels and create custom templates to get better search results tailored specifically to you and your needs.

Nova has finally arrived as a platform for everyday users as a self-sign-up software. Fully functioning and available on monthly or yearly subscription plans.
