Frame.io offers a Frame.io panel within Premiere Pro and After Effects (Window > Workspaces > Review) or (Window > Review with Frame.io), a web app, and more collaborative features.

Frame.io will accept any file uploaded to your project. File types that support viewers and reviewing features include all standard video, image, audio, and PDF types.
Or, select Upload > Active Sequence on the top of your Frame.io window.
For more information about how the various Upload options work, see Using the After Effects extension.
With the Active Sequence option in Premiere Pro and the Active Comp and Queued Comps options in After Effects, you can render and upload the Timeline directly in to Frame.io for sharing without leaving the app.
In both cases, if you choose to upload folders, Frame.io retains the folder structure automatically.
No need to compress your media beforehand. Upload your largest files, and Frame.io plays it back smoothly when it's ready. Frame.io uses an accelerated file uploader.
Frame.io encodes the files into H.264 videos to play seamlessly on the web while making the original file available for download.
After the upload is complete, Frame.io instantly creates hover scrubs for videos, and thumbnails for your still images. Non-media file types are identified with a file icon.
The proxy bitrates used for streaming are:
Reviewers can comment on specific video frames in the text field below the composition window. Use the annotation options such as font color to customize the comments before posting. These comments appear in the Comment list panel on the left, where you can view every comment along with the timestamp. You can post a reply, delete a comment, and mark a comment as complete in the Comment list.
When you click a comment, it takes you to the specific video frame to which it was added. Simply click any comment to navigate through the Timeline.
After you receive feedback from reviewers, you can import their comments as markers on your timeline.
To import comments, you first need to link your sequence with the Frame.io video. This is automatically done if you previously uploaded your sequence through the extension. But you can also link a video to your sequence manually.
In the Frame.io panel, double-click the clip to open the player. Available comments display on the play bar, click a comment to jump to the exact frame in the video. If it doesn't work, click the Link Playheads icon at the bottom middle of the player.
Once the video is linked, a purple badge is shown on the clip, indicating it is linked to the sequence.
While linked, click the Comment icon, and click Import Comments.
After importing the comments, you can see the comment, collaborator, and comment time in the marker on the timeline.
If the correct Premiere Project is open, you can open the related Premiere Pro sequence by opening a Linked clip in Frame.io.
