Frame.io (http://frame.io) released today a companion desktop app for OS X users that tightly integrates their video review, collaboration and sharing platform with Apple’s Final Cut Pro X software. Editors can now publish individual clips, or an entire timeline in full quality (ProRes 4444) or proxy (MP4) to Frame.io. Everyone in the Frame.io project is then automatically notified and able to view previews of the timeline on the web, or download the full quality version.
Artists and editors can use Frame.io's new FCP X companion app to:
► Quickly and easily publish an FCP X timeline for work in progress review
► Upload Digital Dailies with synced sound
► Share a full timeline or selected clips from a timeline with your team for vfx or color grading.
Features of the new companion app allow editors to:
► Use markers in FCP X to upload select clips
► Exclude clips that are disabled in the timeline
► Range-select a portion of the timeline to upload to Frame.io
► Embed FCP X notes and keywords into clips, which are searchable from Spotlight
“Frame.io is the best collaboration tool I have used. It helps me organize, communicate and solve story and creative issues in faster and more fluid ways,” said Michael Matzdorff, first AE of the recently released film, Focus and author of Final Cut Pro: Pro Workflow. “The Frame.io companion app enables one-click publishing from Final Cut Pro X and streamlines crucial communication every step of the way.”
“Frame.io is an extremely elegant and intuitive environment that was built by artists, so it just works- the way artists expect it to”, said Emery Wells, CEO of Frame.io. “Our new seamless integration with Final Cut Pro X is another great example of why. Whether you’re uploading digital dailies with synced sound, or sharing media for VFX or color grading review, what used to take 10 steps now takes just one. Instantly select and publish whichever clips or timelines you choose- including the notes and keywords- with the ease and simplicity you expect from Frame.io.”
Collaboration in Frame.io is as easy as it is powerful- because it’s built for teams, offering the ability to create a private workspace for each project on the docket and decide who has access to what. Every action performed is tied to an individual user and tracked so project participants receive notifications about what’s happening in the project.
Frame.io is designed to replace the hodgepodge of Dropbox for file sharing, Vimeo for video review, and e-mail for communication. Frame.io was developed by people who love creating content, but not the process for creating it. We are filmmakers, VFX artists and post production pros who realized there must be a better way. Frame.io is all about what happens before distribution. Before you reach the finish line. We want to make getting there faster, smoother, and more efficient.
