Create Version Stacks to organize your clips' revisions rather than having multiple versions as individual files in your project.  

To create a Version Stack, upload the new version, then drag it on top of the original version.

💡Frame.io Top Tip

Be sure the new version has fully uploaded before creating your Version Stack.

Once you've created the Version Stack, double click to open in the Player Page, the newest version will be ready to view.

Access all of the versions by clicking the version at the top. You can view any previous version in that stack.

Taking it a step further, you can also compare two versions side-by-side.

Click Compare Versions and select the versions on the left and right that you want to compare. You can also choose the audio track you want to hear.

This viewing option is best utilized to see differences between previously uploaded versions and help your clients stimulate feedback ideas.
