Kollaborate 1.3.2 - restore playback position, simplified sharing and project alerts

Kollaborate 1.3.2 is now live on the cloud, offering some great new additions to our cloud workflow platform for video professionals.

Save playback position

Kollaborate will automatically play back files where you left off, making it seamless to switch between home and office or desktop and mobile. A corresponding update for our Mac / iOS player apps will be released soon.

This setting can be disabled in Actions > Playback Settings in the player.

Simplified sharing

It's now easier than ever to share files with clients outside your project. We've reduced the number of clicks required to share a file and made it much easier to track links across the entire project.

Plus you can get additional statistics including when a recipient last viewed the link and the timecode position at which they stopped viewing.

You can also relink to a different file so that you can silently fix problems without needing to send the person another link.

Project alerts

Easily see the most recent changes to a project with the project alert dropdown at the top right of the screen.

Large thumbnails

We've enlarged the size of thumbnails to make it easier to locate and tell the difference between clips. This affects all uploads from now on but if you want to apply it to existing files, you can go to Actions > Set Thumb to Current Frame in the player.

A new Kollaborate Transfer 1.3 beta has been released with support for the larger thumbnail size. Our other uploading apps will be updated later this week.

Other changes

  • The Users section of the player now shows the last time a user viewed a file
  • Import markers via FCPX XML
  • Marker colors are now respected when importing from FCP 7 XML
  • Right-click the Files page to add a new folder or comment stream
  • You can now add up to 25 linked accounts to your subscription
  • Various UI improvements
