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.

Brilliant piece of software.

2018-11-02

I usually write a covering email on directions to use it and does not natively play at the highest resolution unless selected. 2) The Mobile App is probably my favourite feature, and use this on a daily basis when out and about.

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!

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.

Frame, quite literally, reinvented my post-production workflow

2017-10-10

Frame is remarkably suited to push video collaboration in brand new ways.

Pros

The ludicrous speed, massively flexible feature set, and sheer value-addedness (I know this is not a word, but seriously, just use this software and see how it changes your workflow) make Frame a foundational part of our business.

frame.io

2018-10-23

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

Pros

Quickly send links to individual files, multiple files, in either a review format, or presentation.

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.

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.

Nate Trygg

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.

Saves time! Proper collaboration!

2019-02-15

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Really easy to use

2018-03-12

Pros

Really easy to use, can give to a colleague and they can be writing edits/comments within a few minutes.

Cons

Not sure about this, perhaps if individuals did not need to create an account to add comments or edits.

Awesome review platform

2019-08-15

Using frame.io has been incredibly helpful for our workflow. Quick feedback from clients allows us to turn projects around quickly and collaborate effectively from afar.

Pros

Quick feedback is super helpful. For a client to jump into a video and put notes directly on the point in the project where the feedback is needed; that's invaluable.

Cons

The hardest part (it's a blessing and a curse) is that everyone can see the feedback, so separating internal/external feedback is important.

Best in the Biz

2019-01-21

This is probably my favorite new software implimented in my company. If you work in video, this is absolitely the program you need. No more printing off edits and no more confusion on what they are looking for.

Pros

If I need their feedback, they can leave their comments directly on the time code so that there is ZERO confusion.

Cons

I wish there was more storage? But I'm sure you can pay for more.

Great place to upload videos for team member comments

2019-01-12

Pros

I can upload a video, which takes only minutes compared to a lot longer on other platforms, and my team members can comment on the video.

Cons

Not a whole lot I don’t like, the team sends way too many emails so watch out when signing up for the email newsletters.

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 like that my team can import comments from frame into premiere.

Cons

I don't like that it's super buggy, difficult to know what you're sharing, and often times customers are confused on how to use it or leave their comments. What was suppose to save me time from tracking emails of feedback and contacting a bunch of people to confirm their feedback has moved to me calling the customer and leaving feedback with them.

Use Frame.IO for client review postings when client needs to make comments at specific timecodes

2017-06-27

The Adobe Premiere integration is the main selling point to me for this client review platform

Pros

The integration into Premiere has been fantastic to make notes into markers right into the sequence.

Cons

I would love it if it was possible to let clients just type their name in before they start making comments, and can just send a single link to all people.

Great time-saving app for you & your team

2018-04-05

Pros

Everyone can watch the film on their own time and collaborate/leave comments and edits all in one place to then approve and push live.

Cons

It's pretty pricey for small filmmakers and video teams, and hard to justify the value for the price point.
