There’s an update rolling out for Microsoft’s Upload Studio app on Xbox One and it adds a ton of features that current users will certainly be looking forward to. It might even attract a few new ones.

Upload Studio now allows as many as 15 segments to be assembled into a clip that can be as long as 30 minutes. There are tons of new effects to go between those clips, including transitions, title cards, intros and more. Some templates have been included for things like top 5 lists.

There are also themed intros for some of the biggest games on the system likeĀ Halo andĀ Minecraft.

The biggest items, though, are probably the ability to add text overlays, voiceover and green screen effects.

The green screen is a great use for the Kinect camera. Combined with the 1080p capture, it might be one of the better ways to capture footage for gaming videos. Together with the themed transitions, there’s a lot of room for some unique gaming videos to be created with Upload Studio. But please, please wear pants while you’re green screening yourself into Halo.
