When logging into Frame.io, you'll see the projects shared with you on the left and the current project on the right.
Files on the Project
Videos create hover scrubs for videos and thumbnails for still images.
Viewing a Clip and Leaving Comments
To begin viewing and commenting on a clip, double-click on the thumbnail to see the player.
You can start playing the video by pressing the spacebar or clicking the play button. If you start typing a comment, by default the video will pause so you can get your thought out and also timestamp your comment.
Once you're finished you can either press the Submit button or press Enter and the video will automatically resume.
Going deeper with commenting, if you want to further communicate your idea after you have typed in your comment, select the paint brush tool and draw directly on the video with different shapes and colors.
The back arrow and forward arrow allow you to undo/redo any annotation. Annotating does not affect the original uploaded file.
Also, if you want to leave a general comment on clips that are not associated with time, you can do this by unchecking the timecode box.
Now that you're finished commenting on this clip, go back out to the Project View.
Adding Files to a Project
You can upload files and delete your own files but as a collaborator you don't have access to delete files you didn't upload.
When uploading videos, still images or audio, you can drag them from a folder or select the upload icon. You don't need to pre-compress your files. You can upload full-res and pro-res files. This uses an accelerated file uploader which allows for speeds up to 5 times faster than most file-sharing services.
Once the upload is complete, hover scrubs are instantly created for videos and thumbnails for your still images. Other types of files are still accessible but do not receive a thumbnail. Frame.io encodes the files on our servers into HTML5 videos so they can play seamlessly on the web while still storing the original file available for download.
The Frame.io interface is built for speed. You can drag and drop your files like a desktop environment so you can organize your files in the order you need them in. When you move files around, this creates a Custom sort.
