wipster.io is an online video collaboration tool aimed at teams working on the same piece while removing the necessity for then to be sitting in the same room. Everything is cloud based, and now it’s even easier. wipster.io has now announced full integration with Premiere Pro. Integrating a web service Not too long ago, frame.io announced a similar kind of feature which integrated their online collaboration app deeply with the Premiere Pro panel structure. Now it’s wipster.io’s turn to bring their collaboration service to the next level. With the newly developed panel, you can share your edit straight from the timeline with your colleagues and clients. Everybody stays in the loop easily and can comment on the edit on a frame-accurate basis. The whole process is straight forward and takes the pain out of sharing an edit for approval. You just need to finish your edit for reviewing, choose the render quality, invite everybody who is required for approval and hit the ‘share’ button. When someone has a comment on a given scene, it will show up as a frame-accurate marker within your timeline. So you can work on your edit without having to leave Premiere Pro and read confusing emails stuffed with comments. wipster.io pricing You can download the panel for Premiere Pro for free, but you will need a wipster.io account to make use of it. The pricing of wipster.io is not the cheapest but most certainly the easiest to understand: $15 per user per month. A user is anybody on your team, the editor, a co-worker, you name it. A snippet from their FAQ’s: Each user has their own profile and, depending on the access you give them, they can upload videos and invite people to review them, access certain folders, and complete items in the to-do list. Not everybody needs to be a paid ‘user’, though. For reviewing (and commenting on) a shared video, no account is required. A client will just get a link, and he/she can watch the edit and comment on it. Which one? Well, you will have to find out which collaboration service best suits your needs. As a direct competitor to frame.io’s integration with Premiere Pro it’s nice to see that both companies offer a free plan (frame.io / 2GB / 1 Project / 5 Collaborators) or a trial period (wipster.io / 14 days free trial) for checking out their service. You can download the wipster.io premiere pro panel here and the frame.io panel here.Read more

We are happy to start a new season of ON THE COUCH! Following feedback from our audience, we have decided to divide the episodes of our talk show series ON THE COUCH in the future into several segments from now on. That means we will release each episode in several more digestible shorter parts, released around once a week on a regular basis. There will also be a podcast link for both audio and video version added later this week, which will also include all past episodes. On episode 19, recorded at IBC 2014, we were happy to welcome my friend Philip Bloom, George Olver, the CEO of Movidiam, a great new platform for filmmakers, and Ryan Burke from Røde Microphones. In this first part of this 4-part episode, we talked about the new Sony PXW-FS7 camera and how Sony is disrupting the market once again with this announcement. Click here to see our exclusive hands on video with the camera in case you missed it. Philip talks about the CNN documentary series he is currently working on, mentioning that he is shooting on up to 5 different cameras – the F55, the A7s and the C300. We also talked to George Olver about his website Movidiam.com, a new web platform made for filmmakers. Here’s a detailed post about what Movidiam actually is, but it is great to hear the thought process behind a tool that will help many filmmakers with their preproduction and production workflow. They are currently accepting pre-signups via their website and will roll out the full feature set soon. In part 2 of this episode, which will be released early next week, George tells us more about the development of Movidiam.com, Ryan Burke talks about the new Røde Stereo VideoMic X (post here) and the importance of using the right microphone for the right purpose – something that is often neglected by filmmakers.Read more
