Playback Speeds

While viewing your clip, click the "1x" icon on the video player to open different playback rates. By default, the playback will start at 1x or Normal, but adjusting the slider to the right will speed up the playback rate by 0.05x iterations, all the way up to 1.75x. Adjusting the slider to the left will slow down the playback rate by 0.05x iterations, all the way down to 0.25x.

You may also adjust playback speeds by using keyboard shortcuts 🙌  

JKL shortcuts follow standard NLE behavior:

  • (J) to rewind 2x,4x,8x

  • (K) pause/play a video

  • (L) fast forward 2x,4x,8x

A visual signifier of your current speed will be displayed on your video each time you use a shortcut.

💡 Shortcut Pro Tip: Quickly toggle to fullscreen mode with the (f) key. JKL is also available while in fullscreen mode; however, you won’t see the visual signifiers if you switch your playback speed.

The two buttons on the player in the image above allow you to Download Still and Set Frame as Thumb. Click Download Still on any frame to immediately download a JPEG file of the current frame. Set Frame as Thumb will select the current frame as the thumbnail for the asset when viewed in the project space or shared via Review/Presentation links.

Quick File Access

Switch files within the same folder by clicking the carousel icon at the top middle and then clicking the file to jump into another clip quickly. When the carousel is closed, hold Cmd + Shift + left/right to navigate between assets.


Choose from Approved, In Progress, or Needs Review. Once you select one of these labels, a notification will be sent to all the project users.

If users on the project don't want to receive these notifications, they can turn off email notifications for "Media Status Updated" in their project settings.

Sharing Options

There are two ways to share clips. Share as a Review gives access to share certain files within a project, allowing for comments without users needing to logging in. Only Team Members can share Review links. Share as a Presentation page is solely to present clips for viewing and downloading without commenting.

Q: How come when I open a new video, the playback rate doesn't default to 1x?
A: Whatever playback rate you exit the video with it set as, it will reflect onto the next video you open up as the new default. This is to keep consistency with viewing multiple videos. Reset the speed manually to 1x if you wish to keep the playback speed normal.
