In Frame.io 3.5, the platform enables an extra level of sharing security, allowing administrators the option to limit review and presentation links to specific logged-in email accounts. Users can be placed in the role of Reviewer, which cleans up their view so that they see only the files that have been shared with them for review. A new team feature, the Frame.io Inbox, allows teams to see all of their invitations in one place so that they can see exactly what has been shared.
New search features allow the combination of multiple filters, including date, file type, status, etc., in searches that can be applied to all assets. The new version gets more fine-grained playback speed selections between 1x and 2x in the on-screen interface and between 2x and 8x using the JKL keys. A more responsive precision scrubbing system has been implemented along with the ability to add ranged comments, which allow feedback to be attached to specific scenes or sequences with frame-accurate in and out points.
The Frame.io app for iOS has been redesigned with new features including precision scrubbing, a File Information tab, team-only commenting, and a sharing system hews more closely to the web-based app. And Frame.io has launched a new site, which it calls the app marketplace, to help customers find more than 1,000 additional apps that work with the software.
“Each iteration of the Frame.io platform addresses a new set of challenges for media professionals, with secure content sharing always in the forefront,” said Frame.io CEO Emery Wells in a prepared statement. “Frame.io v3.5 reduces workflow complexity to let creatives do what they do best: create. We’re constantly working to deliver a best-in-class user experience on a platform that users tell us they can’t live without.”
