ftrack reimagines ftrack Review

The new ftrack Review update introduces a new user interface, faster and more responsive reviews, and a more free-flowing user experience

STOCKHOLM (20 April 2022) – – ftrack, the developer of Academy Award-winning media review and team collaboration solutions for the creative industries, has launched a significant update to ftrack Review, the browser-based platform for interactive media review. 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 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.”

ftrack Review’s update introduces 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 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.

“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, we at Blue Zoo are excited by what we’ve seen and what’s coming next.”

Some of the new features in ftrack Review include:

  • An all-new interface designed around the work
  • A newly designed feedback bar
  • Enhanced reviews—faster, more streamlined, and more responsive
  • New toolbar features like ghosting, flip and flop, and resolution selection

ftrack Review’s new features will be implemented into ftrack Studio—ftrack’s full production tracking, shot management, and media review platform—in the coming weeks.
