We recently released Kollaborate 3.1, a major update to our cloud workflow platform for film and TV.
Massive under-the-hood overhaul
Kollaborate has had a complete under-the-hood overhaul to improve scalability and provide a secure base on which we can quickly develop new features. All new features are being delivered on the new foundation and we plan to convert existing features to the new system over time.
The contents of folders, departments or entire projects can now be downloaded all at once as a single zip file.
Heatmaps show how a video has been viewed –
people skipped ahead and where they watched more than once. Click the Heatmap button in the player for all results combined, or go to the Users tab to view heatmaps for individual users.
Currently heatmaps are recorded only for team members but we plan to record them for link recipients in future.
Clicking the Share button on the player or Files page now generates a link that you can copy and paste immediately, which can dramatically speed up the process if you need to generate lots of links at once. You can edit the link options in the dialog and they will be remembered for future links.
If you clicked the button by mistake, you can also delete the link from that dialog.
You can now add tags to tasks. Some uses for this could be:
- To segment tasks into categories such as “sound” and “VFX”
- To tag tasks with milestones such as “v3.0”
- To convey a task’s status – e.g. “Needs verification” or “Successfully reproduced”
- To add additional context or information to a task – such as “5.1 mix” if the issue only appears in a particular mix
Roles on the Team page can now be customized. Project admins can click the Manage Roles option in the dropdown next to a user to add, edit or remove custom roles.
Keyboard shortcut overhaul
While Kollaborate has supported keyboard shortcuts for a long time, these weren’t easily discoverable. Now whenever a page has available shortcuts, a keyboard icon will appear at the bottom of the screen that will show you shortcuts available for that page. This update also added lots of new shortcuts for things like image zooming and PDF page navigation.
- Import / export metadata to CSV files
- Pin important tasks to the top of the Tasks view
- Improved icons
- You can now add captions in languages other than English (although automatic transcription is still English-only)
- Lots of bug fixes and improvements
Kollaborate is an essential cloud workflow platform that allows you to share files with clients and team members while integrating with Digital Rebellion apps and services. To find out more, see the overview or register for the free trial.
