Your video review and approval questions, answered

What is video review software?

Video review software is a type of creative collaboration platform that makes it easy to discuss visual content. Your creative teams, project managers, and clients can view your videos in their browser, then they can tap to add comments and annotations. This helps to keep discussions in context and removes the need for writing out timecodes or taking screenshots when sharing feedback.

How do video review tools work?

Video review tools like Filestage work directly in your browser. Creative teams, video editors, or project managers can upload content in a couple of clicks. They can then invite reviewers to add comments and give their approval, all in one collaborative space. No downloads, no transfer links, no fuss!

What video feedback tools does Filestage include?

Filestage includes a wide range of video feedback tools to help speed up and simplify the video review and collaboration process. This includes point-and-click markers, comment threads, annotations, attachments, and side-by-side comparisons.

Can you set up a custom approval process for your video project?

Absolutely! When you set up your project, you’ll be able to organize your stakeholders into reviewer groups. You could, for example, have one for your internal team and another for your clients. This makes it easy to collaborate with all the right people and get everyone’s approval before sharing your videos with your next group of reviewers.

Does Filestage’s review and collaboration software include version control?

It does indeed! When you share a new version of a video, it will automatically be stacked on top of the existing version. This makes it super easy to refer back to old versions to check the feedback or see who gave their approval. And on top of that, you can compare two versions of a video side by side. This makes it quick and easy for anyone to verify the new version against the last round of feedback.

How does video review software speed up the video editing process?

Filestage’s video review platform integrates with two popular video tools in the Adobe Creative Cloud suite – Premiere Pro and After Effects. This allows video editors to render sequences to Filestage directly from their video editing software. And when the feedback comes through in Filestage, they can see it in their timeline in Premiere Pro and After Effects. This saves a huge amount of time for video editors and removes any risk of misinterpreting which part of the video a reviewer was talking about.

Is Filestage free video review software?

Filestage’s video review app offers a Free plan for unlimited team members, files, and reviewers. This includes two projects, two reviewer groups for organizing your approval process, and 2 GB secure storage. If you’re managing more projects or need more reviewer groups and storage, you can upgrade to one of our paid plans. We also offer a free seven day trial if you’d like to put Filestage to the test.

Can you review audio files in Filestage?

Yes, Filestage supports audio reviews as well as documents, designs, images, live websites, and interactive HTML.

Do reviewers need an account to give feedback on videos?

No, your reviewers won’t need to create an account to give feedback or approve your videos. All they need to do is add their name and email address. This is so you can see who the comment is coming from and so they can get notifications on replies or new versions.

Do reviewers need to download videos to give feedback?

No, Filestage works in your browser on your desktop, tablet, or mobile. When you invite someone to give feedback, they’ll get a link in their inbox – or you can copy and paste it to them in your chat tool. Then they can open the link, watch the video, and click directly on your content to add feedback.

How many people can you invite to review videos?

With Filestage, you can invite as many people as you like to give feedback and approve your content. If you’re working with external agencies or production partners, you can also give them access to upload content.
