The main focus of the player screen is commenting and collaborating.

To open the player screen, tap any asset thumbnail to pull it into playback view with commenting. 

Commenting

To play the clip, press the play icon in the center of the clip. As soon as you begin to type your comment, the video will pause to allow you to send your feedback and also timestamp your comment.

You can choose to disable the timestamp if you wish. When clicking on the timestamp at the center, it will be disabled and the timestamp will no longer be highlighted. When you're happy with your comment, just tap Send.

Team Only Comments

Team only comments are like private/internal notes that are only visible to other Team Members on the account.


Only Team Members are able to leave Team only comments; Collaborators and Reviewers will not see these internal comments.

Team only comments will appear in gold on your comment window and with a lock icon to indicate the new comment option.

 

Annotations 

When you need to convey an idea with more clarity you can use the annotation tool to draw directly onto the video. Tap the annotation icon and choose what shape/color you want. You can use the undo/redo if needed. Annotating does not affect the original uploaded file.

All your media, comments and annotations sync seamlessly across the web app and into all Frame.io integrations.
