Today we’re excited to share a preview of the all new Frame.io – coming Summer 2018. It’s our biggest and most important update, ever. We went back to the drawing board for this one and rewrote the application from the ground up with a focus on speed and security. Over 1 year in the making, this monumental update delivers all of your most requested features, and sets a new foundation for everything new to come.
Uploading & Organization
A new advanced media browser lets you fly through thousands of assets at lightning speed. Updated sorting options make it easier than ever to find exactly what you’re looking for. We also took search to a whole new level. In addition to searching for individual projects, you can now search filenames, approval status, and uploader across hundreds of projects, instantly.
The web’s fastest accelerated uploader just got faster – with enhanced support for gigabit speeds, and we now keep your folder structure fully intact. The uploader remains the fastest available on the Internet with speeds up to 5X faster than Dropbox. Perhaps more noteworthy, the Frame.io uploader is as fast or faster than every accelerated file transfer tool available.
The new upload panel let’s you keep track of your upload activity, even when you navigate away from a project.
New Asset Support
The media viewer is no longer just for video. Filmmaking has always been a composite of all the creative arts. Photography, writing, illustration, music, and design. So, in 2018 we’re expanding the collaboration toolset to fully support all types of creative media.
View multi-page PDFs – whether it be scripts, storyboards, or concept art – complete with annotation markup.
The new image viewer supports hig-res images including over 100 RAW image formats. Pan, zoom, loupe (to quickly spot check at 100% resolution), annotate, and compare images side-by-side.
We rebuilt our core video playback engine to give you faster and smoother playback with less buffering, at up to 4K resolution.
Commenting & Collaboration
Presence brings a whole new dimension to your collaboration. Presence let’s you see who’s watching and commenting, in realtime. Clip statistics show you play count, historical views, and even lets you set up a notification when a specific person or group of people start viewing.
Advanced commenting brings @mentioning and range-based comments with precision scrubbing. Range-based comments expand the range (no pun intended) of comments that can be expressed when communicating around moving video.
This is just a taste of over 150 new features and improvements coming to the all new Frame.io this summer.
