Frame.io Now Natively Integrated into DaVinci Resolve 16
Frame.io recently announced that its collaboration toolset is now natively integrated into DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio, in partnership with Blackmagic Design. Built entirely on the now public Frame.io API, Frame.io in DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio is now available in open beta and can be downloaded here.
“This partnership goes well beyond an integration. Having Frame.io’s powerful collaboration toolset natively built into a powerhouse post tool like DaVinci Resolve 16 is something many of our users have been eager to get their hands on,” states Emery Wells, Co-founder and CEO of Frame.io. “The synchronisation between Frame.io and DaVinci Resolve is incredible; you can collaborate with others from within the DaVinci Resolve timeline without needing to switch contexts. This is a major step in pushing the boundaries of cloud video workflows even further so users can continue to make better video, faster.”
The announcement marks another significant milestone for Frame.io, just moments after announcing their Developer Platform and Zapier integration. Uniquely positioned at the centre of video workflows, for years Frame.io has supported integrations in the top advanced editing tools, including Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects; and just last fall, Frame.io introduced an all-new workflow extension built into Final Cut Pro X in partnership with Apple. Today, Frame.io has set a new bar with Frame.io in DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio.
The entire Frame.io workspace lives in DaVinci Resolve’s Media Storage
With Frame.io in DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio, users will have access to all their Frame.io accounts, teams, and projects right in the DaVinci Resolve Media tab, immediately on sign-in. Any Frame.io clips added to the Media Pool are automatically downloaded for use in the project – it’s even possible to start cutting while the full resolution file is being downloaded in the background. Resolve will automatically swap the proxy with the full resolution file.
Automatically synced, frame-accurate comments
Frame.io comments, replies and annotations are automatically synced to the DaVinci Resolve timeline, no import or export necessary. If you leave a comment on your timeline in DaVinci Resolve, teammates and collaborators will see it in Frame.io. If they reply to your comment, their threaded response will show up as a marker right in your timeline. The collaboration synchronisation is unlike any other integration Frame.io supports; users can hold entire conversations between Frame.io and DaVinci Resolve without ever needing to switch contexts.
Straight-forward media exports – no extra steps necessary
Entire timelines, or just sections, can be rendered, batch uploaded and synced at the same time to Frame.io with ease. Everything happens automatically when exporting the timeline. No further action needed.
