Frame.io Gives Us a New Camera To Cloud Workflow

Soon you'll be able to capture footage and have it automatically transferred to a cloud-based platform where editors and production teams can get working on it. I remember the 56k Modem sound and the slow downloading of a YouTube video I wanted to watch. Back then I thought YouTube was ridiculous. Who would ever use it and actually wait for a video to download? 

Now we have production teams all connected remotely being able to edit low bandwidth, high-quality H.264 proxy footage as the camera cuts recording. And the beauty of it all is that it integrates with all the top NLEs. Now if you don't know Frame.io, you should get on it, because it will greatly increase your production value and way of working with clients. They give you a free account with one free project with a 2GB cloud upload limit. Just try it, and you'll realize how robust Frame.io's build is. Your clients will love it. 

What makes this so important, is that it will change the professional video production workflow. All the others, like Vimeo, will follow. It's only in the beta phase now, but if you want to see how things will work in more detail, check this out.

I had to do an internet search to find out what this article was about. I was hoping it was a grip you could add to your mirrorless body that uses 5G to seamlessly post images to the cloud. It wasn't.

Sure, this "article" was rather short and not very informative. But you could just have clicked the link at the end of the article :)

I did click the link and I'm still not entirely sure. "The fastest, easiest, and most secure way to get footage from cameras to collaborators—anywhere in the world."
