We’ve redesigned and reimagined ftrack Review to make your review sessions more intuitive, more enjoyable, and better looking! Dive into ftrack Review today to explore a whole new interface, faster and more responsive reviews, and a more free-flowing user experience.

The best feedback comes when those involved can focus completely on the media at hand rather than the tools they’re using to collaborate. ftrack Review’s latest update delivers a significant reimagining of the platform that makes process disappear behind progress via even more free-flowing, collaborative review.

In ftrack Review’s latest update, you can enjoy a newly updated, modern user interface designed for highly intuitive, user-friendly review sessions, alongside a greater focus on efficiency. Browser-based review in ftrack Review now supports more streamlined, fast, and responsive reviews with fewer clicks, even when reviewing large projects with lots of guests and notes. The update also offers new features for the power user, including tools to manage reviews from within the player interface.

ftrack Review’s reimagined workflows are available to try today.

“We’ve listened to our customers’ feedback over the months and have incorporated it into a new ftrack Review update that makes for a simpler and more responsive media review experience,” says Rory McGregor, Product Manager of ftrack Review. “Users can now benefit from everything they enjoyed before—including centralized feedback cycles and interactive real-time review—but with the added advantage of a much more effortless workflow. We’re excited to see what our users think as we build this next step toward our multi-faceted media review ecosystem at ftrack.”

“The latest update to ftrack Review shows ftrack has listened to our needs and quickly implemented much-valued new features,” says John Valentine, ftrack/Workflow Coordinator at Blue Zoo Animation Studio. “With a new, user-friendly UI, an intuitive design layout, and more emphasis on what’s being reviewed, it has never been easier for ourselves or our clients to view, comment and review material, we at Blue Zoo are excited by what we’ve seen and what’s coming next.”

An enhanced review experience

  • Work with speed—enjoy much more responsive notes and faster session loading, even when working with a ton of notes.
  • Annotate with confidence—your drawings and sketches are now saved automatically to a frame without needing to hit post.
  • Create context – “Grab” annotated frames to capture their contents and add them to a note.

  • Simpler sync—Guests now receive a prompt to join a synced session when it starts.

New toolbar features

  • Resolution selection, an updated timecode counter, and new volume control options.

This is just the start of a new raft of updates to ftrack Review. We will add many more features to the platform following this initial update, such as a new Presentation Mode that will pull all attendees into a synced session at the press of a button, further improvements to notifications and a daily email summary of feedback. We will also implement the new ftrack UI and other features into ftrack Studio’s media review interface in the near future. We’ll share more news about these updates soon!

We hope you enjoy exploring ftrack Review’s new features. If you have any feedback, please let us know at [email protected]. We’d love to hear what you think of the new interface and how we could improve ftrack Review even further in the future!
