What is Frame.io?

Frame.io is cloud-based collaborative software that enables users to upload videos and other digital media assets, facilitating team review and collaborative editing in real-time. 

With Frame.io, users can upload storyboards, works-in-progress, scripts, and other projects, facilitating real-time access to team members anywhere in the world. You can also customize a workspace based on the specific workflow tools you use, and integrate with a variety of industry standard video editing programs to add collaborative features. Frame.io is now part of the Adobe family, with the company having been bought by Adobe in October 2021.

Supported software includes Adobe Premiere Pro (opens in new tab), After Effects, Final Cut Pro (opens in new tab), and DaVinci Resolve (opens in new tab). Frame.io also connects with video sharing sites, including YouTube and Vimeo, to directly insert sharing into the process.
