    Here’s what we changed:

    • New capture type: Auto. Certain games have trouble allowing ‘game’ capture. With the new Auto type, game capture will be attempted first for best performance, and will default to screen capture if the game rejects game capture. FYI: this will soon become the new default type.
    • Text effects: you can now drag the entire text effect along the timeline – an upgrade from just controlling the start & end points.
    • Text effects: clicking an effect’s timeline label will scrub the Editor to where the effect starts, as well as select it. Feels real good.
    • Text effects: effect layers are added on top of the list instead of the bottom.
    • Moments overlay: fixed the positioning when the clip’s resolution was really small
    • Moments overlay: added some clarifying info about the overlay in the Share dialog
    • Settings navigation scrollbars make more sense now
    • Fixed the incorrect taskbar icon while Moments is capturing
    • Fixed a crash when trying to set a new storage location inside Settings -> Clips
    • ‘Auto’ is now the default capture type. Since the last update, it’s now clear that Auto allows for successful clips in a lot of cases where Game capture would fail. You can still change the capture type for any game in Settings -> Game Detection.

    Here’s what we changed:

    • Effects: Add text captions to your clips! In the Moments editor, you’ll see the new Effects menu, where you can add text into the footage of your clips. More presets and options on the way! SPOILER ALERT: we’re adding a GIF keyboard next.
    • Experimental feature: Moments overlay. When sharing clips, Moments will now add an overlay image on top of the clip by default. You can configure this in Settings -> Capture and Sound. We’re still testing this – more soon.
    • Less failed captures. We’ve addressed multiple instances of capture failure by properly starting capture at preferable times after common failures
    • If you were getting no ‘game’ audio when capturing certain audio devices, try again, since this has been fixed
    • Slight performance boost for the Moments capture, via improved video & audio frame caching
    • Fixed more cases where clip footage would be choppy after long sessions
    • Fixed a case where clips would have an audio delay when clipping games with higher system resource usage
    • Fixed an issue with sharing/exporting erroring out from certain clip trim points
    • Fixed an issue where Moments capture would get locked up after game capture failed
    • Fixed excessive dropped frames when clipping using Intel GPUs

    We’re looking for input on what Effects you want to see! http://steelseries.com/gg/moments/fx-feedback

    Here’s what we changed:

    • Arctis owners will now have the “Chat” device pre-selected for Moments capture. This makes sure all game-related audio is captured for these devices in your clips. Change it to any other device in Capture & Sound in Settings.
    • “Trimmed” and “Shared” filters in the Moments gallery. Along with filters for all the games you’ve clipped, these new filters are available in the filter dropdown above the gallery.
    • Choose an avatar for your account from Settings! Yep, one of them is a dragon.
    • Moments gallery should load faster, especially for users with lots of clips. More gallery performance enhancements soon.

    Here’s what we changed:

    • Have Moments clips where you can’t hear friends from Discord/voice chat? This update should help – fixed a bug where the ‘Chat’ device wouldn’t get recorded properly
