Frame.io has not only been working overtime to make sure that their online collaboration app is extremely secure, but it’s also boosting features to make it even easier to work together online. Here’s ten new items that teams can take advantage of.
“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. “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.”
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.
“Multi-page PDF review has brought the same collaboration review process that we’ve been using for video to documents. Since our team is already using Frame.io to review videos and graphics,the inclusion of multi-page PDFs lets us manage all content reviews in one place. This helps our team quickly form consensus and reduces duplicate work. Everything that we’ve come to rely on for video review is now available for documents in Frame.io.” –Jesse Borkowski, Director of Video Strategy, Berklee College of Music Online
Enhanced version management: Frame.io users now have more control over how they manage versions. Now project users can reorder or remove any versions from one simple place.
Private comments: For teams who routinely create a separate review link for internal feedback that they don’t want clients to see, Frame.io’s internal team conversations can now 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.
New and Improved Reel player: Drop all assets into a filmstrip format for easy viewing, complete with built-in autoplay. The new Reel player has been tested and adopted by Fox Sports Marketing, and here’s what they had to say: “With all of our content centralized in one place, we are able generate an easy to use presentation which effectively showcases our creative,” said Jason O’Leary, VP Post Production, Fox Sports Marketing
Archival storage (beta): Currently going through beta testing, this feature allows users to free up more account storage by archiving projects. Original files will be archived, with low-res preview files remaining online and searchable so users never have to wonder which backups are where. Users can also continue collaboration of these archived projects with comment, compare, and share through these lower resolution files. Originals can be restored within a few hours.
Updated review pages (beta): Another beta feature is a major overall of Frame’s review pages. They now include a simpler interface that makes it easier for clients to leave feedback—no login required.
Redesigned iPhone app: Frame.io’s given it’s iOS app a design update with a cleaner easier to use app interface.
Short links: No more long and clunky URLs to send to your clients and collaborators. New share URL’s will use a f.io shortlink, making sharing them significantly more friendly. No word on if they’re customizable, but that makes sense.
Account switching: For those users with multiple accounts, Frame.io now offers an ultra simple way to navigate between them on Frame.io.
Frame.io will be showcasing the latest collaboration features at NAB in the South Lower Hall, April 8th – April 11th, 2019.
