Larry Jordan: That’s cool. I got an email from you, just a week or so ago, saying, “Congratulations to us. We have made a major change to Frame.io.” What’s the cool new stuff?

Emery Wells: We are previewing the Frame.io here at NAB. Really, big story with the all-new is that we are expanding the collaboration toolset to work with all different types of creative media. We’re still focused on being the video collaboration product, but filmmaking is a composite of all the creative arts — it’s photography, illustration, writing, design, and music — and when you’re creating video, you have to work with all those asset types, so we’re introducing three new asset types to Frame.io. The first is a multi-page PDF, which is great for your storyboards and your scripts. The second is a more advanced image viewer, so we have things like a loop mode so you can hold down shift on a super high-resolution image and get a little loop of 100%. Just good things like that. We support hundreds of new RAW image formats, so you can upload, you know, if you did a location scout or casting, you can upload all of that too and so just better tools for working with images. And then, of course, 50% of video is audio.

LJ: Noooo.

EW: That’s right; it’s often forgotten by the editors maybe. We have a new audio viewer with waveform and audio meters just so you can have a better experience listening to, looking at, and commenting on audio.

LJ: And we can see waveforms, did you say?

EW: Yes, waveforms.

LJ: You guys have been busy rewriting. That’s a lot of work.
