Frame.io or Wipster.io? Or neither?

Hi all,

I'm getting pretty bored of dealing with clients sending bitty comments in several emails and not sticking to particular rounds of feedback etc. I mostly work on my own or with other freelancers but on edits it is usually just me. You probably all know that clients continuously send bits and bobs of feedback and your versions just get more and more confusing.

I'm wondering if either of these services are actually worth it for me and what experiences others have had. Definitely appealing to have comments pop right into premiere, can't argue with that. Anyone use either of them?

Cheers for any opinions

Never used it......

Up to now perhaps .... because it looks super cool.

Look at the Premiere integration:

And by the way, that video is a super cool job, kudos to all who worked on this one!

I've used both a whole lot. This is what it comes down to:

For team collaboration, frame.io. For nothing but client review, wipster. Here's why:

First, wipster doesn't require an account to leave feedback on the video. Frame.io kind of has a solution for this, but it is no where near as simple. Wipster nailed this feature out of the gate, and all clients I've had love it. To really have a good client review with frame, they have to sign up for an account.

But frame.io has a better notification system for longer conversations on a file, and they support more than video files, so you can share music files, stills, etc. Also, frame.io has a great feature where you can view a previous version of a file side-by-side in sync. This is great for color grading comparison or vfx versioning.

Both have a Premiere extension. Frame.io has a FCPX exporter.

I've also been battling with this a bit.
David, you mentioned a work around on frame io where clients don't need to log in . What does that involce?

Great thanks David. I think Wipster is what I am after for the moment. I did get a reply from someone at Frame.io saying that they are working on comments and feedback without logging in, but it's not active yet.

For the short term, looks like Wipster will do what I need and not Frame.io as I can't imagine anyone wanting to sign up when they can send me a ridiculously cryptic email instead, which they love to do.

That's great insight from frame.io. Thanks for sharing.

I hope your clients love it. It completely improved my work life when it came to freelance client review—stuff simply got done faster. Easily worth the monthly cost, in my opinion.

Having a dilemma now since I have to pay for Wipster anyway to get the premiere panel, which was kind of the point. But I've tried the Frame.io panel and as you say, it's a lot more comprehensive. I may hold off for a short while and see if Frame.io sort their stuff out for collaborators to not sign in, as it does look quite a lot better.
