Frame.io introduced indestructible uploading with Watch Folders for macOS . This release marks an entirely new way to move media right from your desktop to Frame.io. The new macOS menubar app enables creatives to send raw assets, dailies, and in-progress edits to Frame.io for feedback and approval while preserving folder structure.
“Uploading large video assets is often slow and error prone. We’ve all uploaded large assets (or a large batch of assets) overnight, only to discover one or more files has failed. If you’re not constantly monitoring the progress, you could miss a deadline,” explains Emery Wells, CEO of Frame.io. “Frame.io’s new indestructible Watch Folders were designed to continuously push the upload forward, so no matter where you are, how bad your internet is, if your battery dies – the moment you reconnect to the internet, the upload resumes. It’s built on our accelerated upload technology, which has consistently been tested as one of the fastest file transfer solutions on the market.”
With the new macOS menu bar app, which now supports Closed Captions in the newly-announced Final Cut Pro 10.4.1, Frame.io users can download FCP X comments from Frame.io and import them as captions directly into FCP X. The new macOS menu bar app also allows users to pair a local folder with a Frame.io destination folder, then render files right from Apple® Final Cut Pro® X, DaVinci Resolve, Adobe® Premiere® Pro, Adobe® After Effects®, Adobe® Media Encoder, Avid® Media Composer®, On-Set Dailies and Assimilate Scratch. As each file completes rendering, it will automatically upload to Frame.io and send all members of your project a notification. You can even set the files to upload as private so you have a chance to check them before your collaborators do.
Indestructible Uploading: Quickly, securely, reliably.
Frame.io Watch Folders maintain the folder structure – no matter how many layers deep – and ensure assets are securely uploaded. Whether you’re uploading overnight, on a flight, at a coffee shop, or on location, the new indestructible upload will give creatives the peace of mind to work under the toughest deadlines and security measures. The new companion app will support multi-gigabit upload speeds, allowing users to upload one-hundred gigabytes of media in as little as 13.3 minutes, folder structure fully intact. Upload any file type. Preview over 150 formats in the all new Frame.io.
Accelerated uploading that blows away the competition.
