Vimeo Introduces Adobe Premiere Pro CC Integration

You can now upload videos directly to Vimeo from Premiere Pro CC with a new, downloadable panel.

Last month, Vimeo added review pages for PRO and Business accounts, aimed to be an entirely internal review system to compete with Frame.io and Wipster (which integrated with Vimeo last year). Now Vimeo has taken a page out of the Frame.io playbook, integrating the tools directly into Premiere so you ostensibly never have to leave your NLE. The new panel also lets you control privacy settings, check allotted Vimeo storage, and customize your bitrate, codec and resolution settings from within Premiere.

Now that Vimeo PRO and Business members can create a review page from within Premiere CC, it makes Frame.io's Premiere integration less unique and—due to the high cost of a Frame.io subscription—less desirable for filmmakers on a budget.

The main complaint we hear from Vimeo users is its encoding time: once you've uploaded a video it can take a while before it appears, even if you're a PRO user. Does that extra waiting time justify paying for an alternate service to handle uploads and review? In general, the importance of encode-free upload platform depends on the turnaround time of your project and the level you're working at. Either way, this new Vimeo panel is a welcome addition to the litany of online publishing tools for filmmakers.

Does any one know if they are working on versioning within the review page? The functionality is great but without being able to upload a new version while being able to reference the pervious comments they are still behind Wipster.

Huge fan of Frame.io but agree the amount of storage for their current pricing leaves much to be desired. I assume this will change as they mature and gain more customers. Definitely checking this out though, but I think the upload speed of almost 5 times faster gives Frame.io the edge.

"it makes Frame.io's premiere integration less unique and—due to the high cost of a Frame.io subscription—less desirable for filmmakers on a budget."

This integration is an uploader / publisher. The Frame.io integration is the entire Frame.io platform right inside of Adobe Premiere Pro. It's also kind of unfair to say Frame.io has a high cost ($15/mo) when it allows you to use all the integrations and review tools on the Free plan.

On another note, thanks for the mentions :)

Going to put you on the spot here, but any plans on making the cost to storage ratio a bit more appealing? Love your platform, we just found the storage sizes for price limiting at the old production house I worked for. Plan on integrating this at the new place I'm working.

Thanks!
