Great way to review video with coworkers and clients

2019-04-24

Pros

Drop a comment anywhere in the timeline, have discussions around it.

Cons

Free trial used to be a good single person or hobbyist option. Now it has a hard stop after which you have to pay more than anyone outside of being a full time pro can afford.

I love using this product and it makes me enjoy video projects so much more

2021-08-05

I have always had a love/hate relationship with video editting projects but the software takes away some of the clunkiness of sending files, version control, etc so I don't mind doing these projects as much.

Pros

I also love the email notifications for comments.

Cons

I don't have any issues with the product. I'm sure there are many more features that I look forward to learning.

Brilliant piece of software.

2018-11-02

Here are some notes from my time using it over the past couple of months in a live environment: 1) Just because you have it and love it, doesn't mean your clients have the technical capability to use it (No IE compatibility for instance).

Pros

Mobile App and Premier Pro Integration have drastically changed my workflow and can feel the productivity gains on a daily basis.

Cons

It doesn't automatically play at the highest resolution, and does not give you any metrics as to how long people have watched the video internally but im nit-picking!

2018-10-23

I wish they had a more intuitive UI or a tutorial video for some functionality early on.

Pros

One easy source to share and version animations and videos.

Cons

A bit expensive, but ultimately worth it. There is a little bit of a learning curve as to how to arrange the order of your videos.

Excellent collaboration tool for clients

2018-08-20

I have had a great experience working with this software and would recommend it to both producers and clients.

Pros

It allows for several parties to all access the newest versions of each edit and provide feedback and timeline specific notes.

Cons

Version history can get a little confusing.

Saves time! Proper collaboration!

2019-02-15

I ran out of room in the pros section, but there's so much to like about this site! Exporting comments to your editing program, uploading directly from your editing program, versioning, status, multiple file types handled, great price points, flexibility with team members and collaborators, the list could go on.

Pros

Clients, with very little training, can leave comments right on specific times on the video, and then if still unclear, we can have a conversation right in the comment thread.

Cons

Some more features would be great, maybe being able to mark some sub-comments as complete if a client starts loading requests into the thread instead of a new comment.

One of the great SaaS offerings

2020-05-26

The features keep getting better and better. The UI is a dream to use.

Pros

The UI and functionality are amazing.

Cons

But really that's my failing as there is a full featured API available.

Very efficient and useful communication tool

2019-01-24

We’ve drastically reduced the number of in-person reviews in favor of sending Frame IO links that clients can check and comment on attheir convenience.

Pros

They can make timecode specific comments right in the tool.

Cons

Email notifications can get out of hand when there are multiple people making comments.

Streamling video approvals

2019-03-18

It's streamlined internal reviews and feedback really well and allows management to keep an eye on project with varying degrees of involvement.

Pros

It also helps you keep track of multiple versions which often can get confusing

Cons

It takes a little bit of figuring out and sometimes clients who can be put off by it because it can look a little overwhelming.

Ideal tool to review videos

2019-08-27

Till date, my overall experience with Frame.io is really good as it supports different formats and also supports photo RAW.

Pros

It nearly imports every video format and that's the reason I frequently use this tool to process a variety of video formats.

Cons

I didn't find any cons except the version comments, which get invisible in the dual-screen preview.

Fantastic video workflow collaboration tool

2017-01-05

It allows you to share your work instantly with collaborators and allows them input, which lands seamlessly on your timeline as comments. As a film-maker, I use this tool on almost all projects and everyone I work with is always impressed with its ease of use and features.

Pros

Fast, cloud-based and feature-rich

Cons

entry level pricing competitive, but a bit high for very small video-makers.

Great video collaboration platform for freelancers!

2019-01-09

Pros

The timeline commenting feature is also very handy as you see the comments throughout the video in a "live feed" type way.

Cons

I don't really have many complaints about this software. My only complaint would be that there is currently no android app for Frame.io which is rather frustrating.

Level Up from Vimeo

2021-03-11

Frame is an industry leader in the video production space, especially with their forthcoming integrations with Sound Devices and other on set hardware manufacturers to make a seamless transition from set to post production.

Pros

Frame has quickly become the standard for sharing internal review links within our organization, making it simple for creatives to get feedback from producers and stakeholders, and then go back and continue working.

Cons

We also have had on-and-off issues with comments not being carried through.

Great for remote creative teams or outsourced videos

2018-11-02

Pros

- It's quite easy to use, so perfect if you need somebody who is not "in the field" to review the video and add their comments. - you can stop the video and add notes and comments on that specific time, and others can comment on your note.

Cons

- Sometimes the comments take a while to appear to other users, which can force you to move the conversation elsewhere if you're in a hurry.

Simplify the review process

2019-11-01

Not enough clients to justify anything other than the free tier, but a feature packed product from a company that believes in their product.

Pros

Super easy to review and share videos and revisions. Collaboration is much easier and asynchrone review is nice for remote workers.

Cons

Would like to be able to send link to clients without having them create an account. Also, have private feedback.

Incredibly Convenient Way To Review Videos

2021-04-06

Used Frame.io to share videos I've created with my team; as well as leave feedback on externally created videos.

Pros

Frame.io enables sharing videos super easily, and best of all - leaving specific comments on these videos in a highly intuitive yet detailed manner.

Cons

I have sometimes heard reports from people I've sent frame.io links to that the audio and video were not synched up at first.

Consider other options before settling with Frame

2019-02-12

I've used frame for about 3 years now as a project manager, creative director, and video editor.

Pros

I also like that my clients can leave comments themselves if they know how to do it.

Cons

This can also be achieved with vimeo, and now dropbox and google drive is allowing comments with video marketing—but you cannot import the comments into premiere.

Frame is great for small scale video projects and social video producers

2019-01-22

We've realized faster approvals when our clients engage in the platform. Sometimes they need some onboarding training though.

Pros

Simplicity and speed of platform -- and it's better than sending a big file or youtube link.

Cons

In the mobile app the screen is off center in the vertical view.

A necessary tool for professional video creators

2019-10-31

Since then, my clients have had no issue leaving comments. The cost is better, but only slightly.

Pros

Your client leaves comments at time-stamped sections and you are then notified of every note made.

Cons

When you add up all the other subscription software you need from CRMs, Invoicing, Cloud storage, Adobe and about a hundred other things, Frame.io's cost can be difficult to accept, especially after having some clients not even use the system.

One of our go-to video sharing softwares, but surprisingly difficult to navigate

2019-02-01

There's a lot of promise here, but I really need a tutorial.

Pros

The single best feature of Frame.io is the ability for reviewers to leave time-coded notes on the project, simply by commenting at the moment they are trying to note.

Cons

Honestly, I found this software to be confusing. There are a lot of bells and whistles to pull and prod, but without someone physically teaching me the software, I couldn't figure it out. My company doesn't have precious time to waste on boarding people onto new software, so I found using Frame.io to be more trouble than it was worth. It was almost like trying to learn Premiere on my own -- there are so many things I could do with the software, but I physically could not figure out how to use it on my own.

Great for collaboration with other departments

2019-08-12

Pros

Frame.io is great for collaborating between different departments of production (Offline editor, sound designer, Online...) and keep all comments in an organized place.

Cons

They somehow either manage to get lost with the interface, or would use it to bombard you with comments since it's so easy to do.
