Frame.io Releases v3.6 Plus A Beta Of Frame.io Transfer App

Frame.io Transfer streamlines one-click downloads with EDL and XML support; updates to Frame.io v3.6 promote efficiency and security for the remote workforce.

Frame.io Transfer is a new file transfer app for both Mac and Windows. Available in beta, Transfer lets users download large files and folder structures—even entire projects—with one click. It supports EDL and XML formats, so users can identify specific files, helping accelerate the process of relinking to original camera files for final conforms, color grading, or sharing assets for VFX. Transfer also makes it possible to monitor active downloads and to drag and drop to reprioritize their order. Finally, Transfer facilitates fast and secure downloads, regardless of unstable internet connections; if there’s a disruption mid-download, Transfer pauses and automatically resumes once reconnected.

“Transfer was originally slated for release later this year, but as a response to the profound shift in the way we’re working and the tools our customers need immediately, we’re releasing it in beta today,” says Emery Wells, cofounder and CEO Frame.io.

Frame.io v3.6 has a new watermark ID, which provides another layer of visible security. When any viewer presses “Play,” Frame.io completes a realtime, on-demand transcode of the video with their personal identifying information burned into every frame. A two-hour video starts playing back in less than two seconds, providing peace of mind when sending work out for review.

Users can now add folders to Review Links, allowing them to easily organize and share assets across teams or projects. Any changes made to folders after they are shared are dynamically updated in the Review Link. This is especially useful for teams who produce episodic content or programming that relies on a library of media. Frame.io also made it faster, easier, and more intuitive to organize assets with an improved “Move-to” and “Copy-to” flow.

With this update, Frame.io users will now be able to see all the Presentations they’ve shared and access their settings from one organized list. The display shows folder sizes so users can see which are the heaviest projects at a glance, making it easier to optimize projects and storage.

Frame.io v3.6 consolidates notifications made on the same video within short periods of time, grouping them together into one notification. An ‘Offline Mode’ for Frame.io’s iOS apps enables users to work from anywhere. Tap a file to make it available offline, then review and leave comments - as soon as the app comes back online, comments are automatically synced to the project.
