Video is a composite of all the creative arts, and working with images is an essential part of the video creation process. We use images for location scouts, castings, photo shoots, illustration, and design. Today, we’re launching all new image review tools which will enable you to work with a wider range of creative assets and centralize more of your production and post-production workflows in Frame.io.
This update includes dozens of new features to help you collaborate more seamlessly on all types of image and graphical assets.
The new image viewer supports high-res images including over 100 RAW image formats. We now render up to 8K resolution previews. A new addition in this update is the ability to preview graphical assets as PNG’s so they stay crisp and sharp. We handle alpha channels correctly, so you can see transparency, as well.
Along with support for high-res images, the new image viewer gives you a sleek way to pan, zoom, loupe (to quickly spot check at 100% resolution), and annotate stills. Working with a large image? View it in fullscreen mode for a distraction-free experience or use the new image map to find your current area of focus.
To top it off, the asset slider now remains open so thumbnails stay visible. Whether you’re reviewing just a handful of images or hundreds of files, you can tap the left or right arrow keys to quickly navigate between assets.
Finally, for all our power users out there, we introduced new keyboard shortcuts to help you move faster and more efficiently.
