Vine just announced the launch of a new feature that the app should have had from the beginning - the ability to use videos you've already created in Vines. It's available for iOS.

Vine explains: "In addition to your phone’s front- and rear-facing cameras, you now have another source for your Vines: you can import existing videos from your phone. From the capture screen, you’ll see a new option in the bottom left corner that lets you import a video. You can select one video or mix together several — and yes, slow-motion videos are supported."

They've also added some new editing tools.

"Next, it’s now easier to get your Vine just the way you want it," it continues. "Whether you’ve imported a past video or shot a new one within the Vine app, you can edit your Vines faster and with more precision. Simply tap the scissors from the preview screen to edit your Vine and try out new tools such as the duplicate button and mute button. My favorite new tool is the preview and undo button — with one tap, you can preview your last clip right from the capture screen, and if you don’t want to use it, you just tap the same button again to undo it."

If you hit the wrench icon, you'll have access to tools like: grid; focus lock, which works with the front-facing camera as well as the rear-facing camera, ghost mode, which lets you show the last frame of your previous shot; and a torch feature, which helps for shooting in low light.

The company says over 100 million people watch Vines across the web every month.

The new features will hit Android later.
