The Frame.io Premiere Pro Extension Just Got a Whole Lot of Love
In April of 2016, we launched our most ambitious integration to date: a real-time collaboration layer for Adobe Premiere Pro powered by Frame.io.
Today we’re rolling out an update with over 30 new features and improvements to accelerate your video workflow without ever leaving Adobe Premiere Pro.
Over the last 3 years, we’ve made tons of progress deepening the collaborative experience of our web product (app.frame.io), and today’s update brings the best of those new features and some helpful bug fixes right into our Premiere Pro extension.
If you’re an existing user, you’ll find the update waiting for you next time you log back in to the panel. If you’ve never used our extension, we encourage you to check out how easy it is to work with your team and clients right from your timeline.
Some top new features we’ve added
- Status labels are now integrated directly into Premiere Pro, including Approved, In Progress, or Needs Review.
- Comment count is now displayed on the file thumbnail.
- Comment and reply activity (creating, updating, deleting, etc.) now update in real time.
- Projects update in real time when team members create, update, move, or delete any file, folder, or version stack.
- You can edit your rendered output file names in the upload settings panel.
- The new project selector ensures that your current project is always in view, so you don’t have to scroll to search for it.
- Share links now use custom Frame.io short links. (e.g. f.io/CssBSl72)
- You can now seamlessly navigate to other Frame.io projects while Adobe© Media Encoder renders in the background, without interrupting the upload process.
