During IBC 2019 we met up with Sam from Frame.io who talked us through the updates in Frame.io version 3.5 update. This new version brings useful features like range-based comments, advanced searching filters, and some new functions for the Adobe Premiere Pro Frame.io app, like proxy files downloading. Secure sharing is also a new feature, which is currently in beta version only.
Frame.io is a collaborative online platform where everyone in a team can give feedback to uploaded assets, like videos. There is now a new version 3.5 of the platform, which got released just before the IBC 2019. During the show we met up with Sam from Frame.io to hear the most important new features of the version 3.5.
Frame.io Version 3.5 New Features
Range-based comments is a new feature providing users with a possibility to comment on a particular section of the video rather than only on a specific frame. The range can be specified very precisely – by holding “Shift”, users can move the range by a single frame (precision scrubbing).
Advanced searching filter provides a more customizable and convenient way to look at all the assets in frame.io. Users can combine filters to see only the exact assets they want to.
Secure sharing is a new feature, which is only in the beta version now. It provides users with a more secure sharing option. When sharing an asset, there is now a new “invite only” setting. When this option is selected, the sent link will only work as an invitation to the platform. To see the shared content, the person needs to first register to frame.io. This way, users can control who sees their shared asset.
One more new feature for the Frame.io Adobe Premiere Pro app is the ability to download low-resolution proxy files. Frame.io automatically creates a low bitrate H.264 proxy file for every asset uploaded. Previously, it was only possible to download full-resolution files. This will help in situations when working in a remote location with a poor internet connection.

Frame.io version 3.5 is already out and all existing users will get this update for free. Frame.io is an online subscription service that starts at $19 per month for a Pro membership and $49 for a Team plan. They also offer seven days trial version for free.
