Tutorial: Client Collaboration and Review With and Wipster

Here we demonstrate and Wipster, two new services that enable client review of video projects in progress through direct integration with Adobe Premiere Pro and Media Encoder.

Figure 9 (below) shows what my project looks like in Wipster on the web, and you can see who I've shared it with here on the left by their initials. I can change the quality here--if I had a higher resolution clip I could down-res it to something more manageable if I was on a slow connection trying to watch this. I can also share it with others and see more specs about the video including who's viewed it, who's commented and who has approved it if necessary (Figure 10, below Figure 9).

If you have one of those clients who's just slow to respond to anything, wait a day or so and then hit the Nudge button shown in Figure 10 and that will let them know, "Hey, remember you're supposed to comment on this video and give feedback if you want to meet your deadline." You can see in Figure 11 (below) I have my first comment now, and I'm going to click on this to bring up the comment window. We've got a positive comment right off the bat; that's great.

Figure 11. Comments in Wipster

Premiere Pro has created a marker where the comment is. It brings all the comments in as actual markers in Premiere Pro which is great, because as I'm completing these and checking them off, like say, when I mark a comment as complete, it grays it out, showing that this whole issue is now been dealt with. It makes it really easy to quickly scroll through here and see what still needs to be fixed or not, because it shows color where I still have to address something, and everything goes to grayscale if I've already taken care of it (Figure 12, below).

Once I've received and cleared enough comments to be worth making a new version, I can just click "Resync Version 1" (Figure 13, below) and that will replace the version I previously uploaded with a new version, and my collaborators can then start commenting on the new version and see if they need to still address some of the previous issues, or if everything has been taken care of.

When all three of my comments have been addressed completely, and I can now essentially finish off the project, I can make sure that everyone is happy by using that wonderful approval button, and see if they approved it.

If I comment “Are we approved?”, my comment shows up for everyone else to be able to see. Hopefully here my two commenters will reply and say, "Yes, and yes." As soon as I have the approval from my commenters I can sign off on this, export to final project, and upload it or share it wherever I need to.

That's an overview of Wipster and Both of these services are meant to fulfill the same purpose, so they're supposed to ease the pain point, sharing projects with your clients and waiting on feedback. It makes it super easy by building everything right into Premiere Pro, but it gives you the flexibility of using things like mobile apps or mobile browser, or doing it on a desktop.


Another key difference between these two services is going to be pricing. I'll show you the pricing comparisons here so you can kind of see how they're structured. It is a fee that you pay by month or by a team member depending on the service you're using, depending on your budget and workflow. These plans are flexible for how many projects you do each month and how many team members you need to be able to collaborate with at any given time.
