Frame.io, a video review and collaboration platform used by over 700,000 filmmakers and media professionals, is rolling out 10 new features that will dramatically improve how media professionals collaborate on video, from initial upload to final delivery and everything in between.
Top user-requested features now available in Frame.io include a new reel player presentation format, @mentions and support for multi-page PDFs.
“Nearly four years ago Frame.io came to market with a vision to change the way filmmakers collaborate. We’ve rolled out hundreds of updates along the way, but today, we’re excited to release 10 features that we’ve been dying to ship since day one,” comments Emery Wells, co-founder and CEO of Frame.io in a statement. “We launched an all-new reel player presentation format, unlocked private comments, and enhanced our version management feature. We also seriously expanded the type of media we support—you can now collaborate on PDFs just like on video, so your entire video workflow can live in Frame.io.”
From improved collaboration to enhanced media support, and new, flexible ways to store and access your media, Frame.io rolled out the following features today to take video collaboration to the next level:
- Multi-page PDFs: Frame.io users can now collaborate on scripts and storyboards just like on video. Now, entire video projects from the initial brief to the final deliverable, can live in Frame.io.
- Enhanced version management: Frame.io users now have more control over how they manage versions. Reorder or remove versions, all in one simple place.
- Private comments: For teams who routinely create a separate review link for internal teams to gather feedback they don’t want clients to see. Internal team conversations can be separated from client conversations, all within the same project.
- @mentions: Users can tag anyone on a project to quickly grab their attention when it’s needed most. Anytime someone is @mentioned, they’ll receive a notification for streamlined communication.
- Reel player: Drop all assets into a filmstrip format for easy viewing, complete with built-in autoplay.
- Archival storage (beta): Users can now free up more account storage by archiving projects. Original files will be archived but low-res preview files stay online and searchable so users never have to wonder which backups are where. Comment, compare, share — all the Frame.io magic still applies to archived projects. Originals can be restored within a few hours.
- Updated review pages (beta): Frame.io review pages just got a major overhaul. They now include a much simpler interface that makes it easier for clients to leave feedback — no login required.
- Redesigned iPhone app: Frame.io’s Apple Design Award-winning iOS app just got a design update. On-the-go users can now enjoy a cleaner and all-around improved app interface.
- Short links: No more long and clunky URLs to send to your clients and collaborators. New share URLs will use a f.io shortlink, making sharing them significantly more friendly.
- Account switching: For those users with multiple accounts, Frame.io now offers an ultra simple way to navigate between them on Frame.io.
For the first time ever, Frame.io will have a dedicated booth in South Lower Hall at the 2019 NAB Show.
