Yesterday, Frame.io revealed 10 new features that the company claims will “dramatically improve” the way video creatives collaborate on videos.
The features will cover everything under the collaboration process, from initial upload to the final delivery. The top “user-requested” features, according to Frame.io, are now available. Some of those features include a new reel player presentation format, @mentions, and support for multi-page PDFs.
Here’s a video from Frame.io that introduces all the new features:
Let’s break down all the features coming to Frame.io
According to Frame.io, users can now collaborate on scripts and storyboards the same way they can on videos. “Now, entire video projects from the initial brief to the final deliverable, can live in Frame.io,” the company says.
Enhanced version management
Reportedly, users have more control over how they manage versions of their videos. Versions of projects can be reordered or removed in the same place. This really could simplify the workflow of many editors.
If editors want to hide their internal lingo chats from their clients, they can do that now in Frame.io. Also, internal team conversations can be separated from client conversations for a single project.
If users need to get a hold of someone they’re working with, they can tag them to get their attention. A notification will be sent to those who are tagged.
All assets can now be dropped into a filmstrip format for easier playback. Plus, autoplay is built in, so you don’t have to keep pressing play yourself.
Projects can now be archived. This seems like it’ll save a lot of storage without having to commit to a full-on delete. Additionally, a low-res preview file will stay online and be searchable after the full file is archived. It will take a few hours to restore archived files.
Updated review pages
The software’s interface has been greatly simplified. Clients can now leave comments without having to log in. So, the software should be much more user-friendly.
Redesigned iPhone app
Frame.io’s iPhone app now has been updated as well. In addition to having a “cleaner” interface, Frame.io says it’s been improved “all-around.”
URLs used to be longer and more of a hassle to send out. URL’s will now use an f.io shortlink, which should make it easier to share URLs to collaborators or clients.
For those with multiple accounts, they can navigate between their accounts in an “ultra simple way” according to Frame.io. By the looks of it, this feature should save a lot of time on tedious account switching.
The updates are out now on Frame.io. If you want to learn more, check out the company’s press release.
