Introducing Frame.io v3.6: Rapidly Responsive. Powerfully Secure.
We’re always happy to announce new features in Frame.io. But especially now, with more people working remotely, speed and security are even more important. That’s why we’re excited to introduce Frame.io v3.6, with new features to power your workflow so you can focus on the work itself.
So let’s dive in.
When it comes to moving files, speed matters. We’ve been hard at work on a new app for both Mac and Windows called Frame.io Transfer.
We originally slated Transfer to release later this year, but as a response to the profound shift in the way we’re working—and the tools we know you’ll need to make that shift easier—we’re releasing it as a beta now.
Transfer lets you download large files and sophisticated folder structures—or even entire projects—with one click. It also gives you a way to monitor your active downloads and to drag and drop to reprioritize their order. You can use EDL or XML to download specific files, which is especially great for accelerating the process of relinking to original camera files for final conforms, color grading, or sharing assets for VFX. And you don’t have to worry about unstable internet connections—if you lose your connection during a download, Transfer pauses and then automatically resumes as soon as you’re reconnected.

Powerfully secure sharing
Another thing you don’t want to worry about is sharing high-value content securely. It’s why we’re always looking for ways to ensure that you can get the content you need to only those people who should be seeing it.
Login-only access and Inbox
Enterprise users can now protect presentation and review links with Login-only access, which means that no one outside of your account can access your links.
Your recipients will see a list of everything you’ve shared with them in the new Inbox, which gives you a clean and focused view that’s especially useful for busy clients or executives.
Even more powerful is Watermark ID, which provides the ultimate layer of visible security.
When any viewer presses “Play,” Frame.io completes a realtime, on-demand transcode of your video with their personal identifying information burned into each frame. How fast is it? A two-hour video starts playing back in less than two seconds.
You can set up text blocks with things like name, date, location, email and IP addresses, and by using the text styling controls you can set the look and add behaviors like scrolling. It’s also simple to save customized templates so that your whole organization can use them.
You’ve been asking, so we’ve finally made sharing not just more secure, but also more flexible, by letting you add folders to Review Links.
Now you can easily share and organize your assets across your team or your projects. And once you’ve shared a folder, any changes you make to them in Frame.io are dynamically updated in your Review link. It’s especially useful for teams who produce episodic content or programming that relies on a library of media.
Move-to and Copy-to
We’ve also made it easier for you to organize your assets with an improved “Move-to” and “Copy-to” flow. It’s both a faster and a more intuitive way to move assets and folders, and means you spend less time on housekeeping chores.
iOS Offline Mode
No internet connection? No problem. We’ve introduced “Offline Mode” for our iOS apps so you really can work from anywhere.
Tap any file to make it available offline, then review and leave comments. As soon as you’re back online, they’ll automatically sync to your project.
We’ve made notifications a lot more manageable in v3.6 by consolidating them in smarter ways. Ten people leaving comments on the same video? Now you’ll see them grouped together as one notification.
You can filter by “Read” or “Unread,” see comment previews, and scrub asset thumbnails so you can easily spot what you need to review or address. It’s a big timesaver for users who are working on multiple projects or who receive lots of feedback from large teams.
After Effects Background Render
Another huge timesaver is the update for our After Effects integration.
Seamlessly render and upload compositions in the background while you continue working on your project, uninterrupted. The time you used to spend waiting for renders to complete is now yours to keep being productive and creative.
At a glance
With this update, you’ll now be able to see all the presentations you’ve shared and to access their settings from one organized list. You’ll also have a display that shows folder sizes so you can see, at a glance, what your heaviest projects are—which makes it easier to optimize your projects and your storage.
These are just some of the highlights of v3.6, and we hope you’ll enjoy exploring the full list of features and updates. As always, feel free to hit us up with your questions, comments, or suggestions so we can keep making Frame.io even better for you.
