4 Best Frame.io Alternatives

4 Best Frame.io Alternatives

Are you looking for the best Frame.io alternative? In this post, we will cover the best four options we could find.

Like other Adobe products, Frame.io offers one of the most complete video review suites with many features and functionality. But as full as it goes, this can also be a drawback when you need a simple video review system with affordable pricing.

Main features of Frame.io (depending on Plan):

  • Real-time comments and annotations.
  • Version management.
  • Unlimited free sharing.
  • 4K Ultra HD playback.
  • Camera to cloud.
  • Private projects.
  • Share link expiration.
  • Custom-branded presentations.
  • Single Sign-On.
  • Mobile App.
  • Apple TV App.
  • Integration with Premiere Pro, After Effects, DaVinci Resolve, and Final Cut Pro. There is a huge list of integrations, including Slack, Salesforce, Monday, Paymo, and Zapier.

Frame.io pricing:

Free Plan: Unlimited shares, apps and integrations, 2 projects, and 1080p playback.

Pro Plan: $15/month/user with custom branded presentations, password-protect shares, and 4K playback.

Team plan: $25/user/month adds private projects, share link expiration, and custom-branded emails.

 

Now let's do some math about Frame.io pricing:

Their free Plan accepts up to two users and 2 GB of active cloud storage, plus version management.

Not bad, but only suitable for a freelancer with a few small projects.

Paid plans start at $15/user/month with 250 GB storage. You cannot access all features with this Plan, and you can have up to 15 users with no possibility of getting more storage.

If you require more storage, you must move to the next Plan for $25/user/month to get 500 GB of storage. So, let's say you have 5 users; you will be spending $125/month

Keep in mind that a user refers to both collaborators and team members. Every collaborator or team member you invite is a paid user. If specific users only need to view clips and leave their comments, you'd better send them a review page rather than add them as collaborators to the project.

There are many platforms offering similar video review features, and we have selected the best Frame.io alternatives focused on small to mid-sized businesses.

Check them out:

 

Ziflow

Ziflow is an excellent Frame.io alternative you can use for video review.

Main Ziflow features (depending on Plan):

  • Unlimited reviewers.
  • Review any asset (images, videos, audio, snapshots, banners, and also live websites)
  • Version management.
  • Two-stage workflow.
  • Compare versions.
  • Proof brief.
  • Adobe CS and Final Cut Pro X extensions.
  • Advanced commenting and branding.

Ziflow pricing:

Free Plan with 30 proofs/month/per user and 1 GB per user. Needless to say, with low activity, you will run out of storage in the short term.

Business Plan: $40/month/seat (minimum 5 seats) with 50 GB per user and 200 proofs per month per user.

So, for 5 users, you will pay $200/month with 50 GB available per user. You will have unlimited projects but with only 200 proofs per month.

From Business Plan, you only can shift to Enterprise Plan. There is no intermediate option.

As their pricing plan starts with 5 users, you don't have a cheaper option. But $95/month for 5 users and 75 GB is a good deal.

GoVisually

best frame.io alternative

 

We consider GoVisually an excellent Frame.io alternative. With hundreds of integrations available (natively and via Zapier) and a straightforward review process, this platform is a solid Frame.io contender.

Main GoVisually features:

  • Video, image, and PDF review.
  • Clients can comment without registration.

  • Password protect proofs.
  • Mobile App available.
  • Side-by-side version comparison.
