Film & Animation Improvements
Film Submission Through Sta.sh
Film Deviation Page Changes
We've upgraded the layout of Film deviation pages to be more consistent with the rest of deviantART's deviation pages!
While a film is playing, the artist's comments and comments left by other deviants will disappear, so that you can focus on the film without distraction or outside interference. As you reach a point in the film where other users have left annotations, these annotations will appear briefly, and then disappear again.
When the video is paused, you'll be prompted with a comment box, so that you can leave annotations at specific points within the film, just like you could before this upgrade. This allows for an up-to-date look and feel without compromising functionality. In addition, comments left as annotations will include the time the comment was left, as easy reference for any deviant reading through the comments!
HTML Improvements to Sta.sh Writer
To make Sta.sh Writer a better experience for anyone who uses it, we have made Sta.sh Writer into a "what you see is what you type" editor, which means that you can seamlessly use both the WYSIWYG editor and your own custom HTML at the same time! Any HTML you type will be retained for easy editing, even after you save your work!

- Several users liked the Creator Comment feature added to film pages, and some users mentioned that they would like to see it used everywhere on site. However, some users mentioned having issues with the Creator label. ~Negai-Boshi and a few other users mentioned that the color of the button is a bit too bold, and that a lighter color may be more ideal.
- Some users mentioned that the Creator label wasn't necessary, but the brighter comment color was distinguishing enough, while others said that the Creator label was enough, and the color change was unnecessary.
- Many users liked the suggestion regarding a filter to find works with Creative Commons licenses, and feedback regarding a higher limit for avatar file size was unanimously positive.
