Let’s take a closer look.

As a VFX Supervisor, ftrack Review is my daily go-to for reviewing and comparing versions of our artists' work, drawing annotations, leaving helpful feedback, and keeping track of vital client notes. It really is a one-stop shop for everything show-related for us here at Dupe, and we're more than eager to explore all the new features coming our way.

Intuitive ‘Play All’ Sequence Management: Re-order Clips and Switch Versions On the Fly

Experience our revamped ‘Play All’ feature; we’ve added an intuitive method to instantly re-order clips and switch between asset versions on the fly. Want to make live updates to a ‘Play All’ sequence or swap versions during a review? You can now do so – the sequence and all related notes refresh in real-time, eliminating the need to reload the page.

Re-ordering your ‘Play All’ review sequence is as easy as dragging and dropping assets into your horizontal or vertical playlist. Need to change asset versions? Go ahead and do that directly via the playlist; the sequence will update live to mirror the swapped asset, with all feedback notes updating in tandem on the feedback panel.

This feature transforms your workflow for context cuts creation, shot sequencing, and version auditioning. For instance, let’s say you’d like to compare various versions of a character’s animation within a sequence. Now you can integrate alternate animation takes into your playlist during a live session, see these changes dynamically reflected, and engage in a dialogue about what fits best in the sequence – all without a hiccup in your creative flow.

Upload Files Larger than 5GB with Multi-part Upload

Media review in ftrack now supports media files larger than 5GB. This is thanks to our multi-part upload system, which breaks down your sizable media files into manageable portions and uploads these parts in a parallel fashion. This innovative approach bypasses file size barriers while improving upload speed and reliability, especially for your larger files – which means you can expect faster uploads and a hassle-free review experience!

So, whatever your project’s size, you can feel confident running it through media review in ftrack.
