Our advice to anyone who is using v3.0.8-4 of VideoScribe is to uninstall the application and replace it with version v3.0.7. Links to instructions showing you how to do this are below:


VideoScribe v3.0.8-4 was released on 7th March 2018 and is now available to download from your account page.

Sho.co support for Fade in

The sho.co rendering service has been updated to support scribes using the new Fade In animation method.

Performance improvements

We’ve improved the way VideoScribe recalculates the timings displayed on the timeline. This significantly improves performance with larger scribes. It also resolves the issue where some large scribes created in v2 would not open in v3.

Minor bug fixes

We have also fixed a few bugs:

  • The timeline will now update immediately when timings are changed.
  • We have fixed the issue where text and font changes were not saved when you click the Next/Previous Element buttons.
  • We’ve also fixed the issue where Fade In elements set to zero animate time were sometimes not appearing in the rendered video.
  • Some customers have reported that the Add new image button was not responding. We have been unable to replicate this issue here at Sparkol but we have put in a change that we believe may help and also added an error so if the issue does happen you will get a meaningful information rather than no response.

That all sounds great! How do I upgrade to v3.0.8-4?
