Reviewing a Video Proof in the Proofing Viewer

NOTE The functionality described in this section represents the current functionality available in the new Web Proofing Viewer and in the Desktop Proofing Viewer. More functionality is coming soon. 

This article explains how to review video proofs that have been created either within Workfront or Workfront Proof. (For information about how to create a video proof within Workfront, see "Generating a Proof on a Document" in the article "Creating Proofs in Workfront." For information about how to create a video proof within Workfront Proof, see "Generating a Proof on a Document" in the article "Creating Proofs in Workfront Proof.")

Workfront and Workfront Proof currently support three different proofing viewers for proofing video content. For information about these viewers and how they compare, see "Understanding Differences Between the Various Proofing Viewers."

  • Web Proofing Viewer (recommended). Runs in the browser. Can proof video and static files.
  • Desktop Proofing Viewer (recommended). Runs on your workstation as an application. Can proof interactive files, as well as video and static files.
    The options available when you are reviewing video files in these two viewers are described in the sections below. For more information, see "Reviewing Interactive Proofs in the Desktop Proofing Viewer."
  • Legacy Proofing Viewer. Runs in the browser. Can proof video and static files.
    For more information, see "Reviewing Proofs in the Legacy Proofing Viewer."

For information about using the Web Proofing Viewer for static proofs, see "Reviewing a Static Proof in the Web Proofing Viewer."

For general information that relates to proofing both static and video content in the Web Proofing Viewer see "Reviewing Proofs in the Web Proofing Viewer."

If you cannot use the Web Proofing Viewer as described in this section, consult your system administrator. The system administrator can enable or disable access to this viewer, as described in "Web Proofing Viewer" in "General Proof Settings."

The following sections provide more information about reviewing video proofs: 

Changing the Unit of Measurement of the Timeline

You can adjust the unit of measurement that is used in the video timeline. You can view the timeline in Time, Frame, or Timecode.

  1. In the lower-left corner of the Web Proofing Viewer, click the current unit of measurement.

  2. Select from the following options:
    Time: Displays the video timeline in minutes/seconds.
    This option is selected by default.
    Frame: Displays the video timeline in frames.
    The Web Proofing Viewer uses the information on the original file to determine the number of frames per second that is displayed.
    Timecode: Displays the video timeline in timecode. The numbers of the timecode represent hours, minutes, seconds, and frames.
    For example, a timecode of 1:48:36:18 represents 1 hour, 48 minutes, 36 seconds, and 18 frames into the video.

Controlling Video Playback

Adjusting Video Playback Speed

You can adjust the playback speed of the video proof. You can select to view the video between a quarter speed, to double speed.

    The video is displayed in normal mode.

Enabling and Disabling the Web Proofing Viewer

Depending on the global settings defined by your system administrator, you might see the Web Proofing Viewer when viewing video proofs, or you might see the legacy viewer.

To enable the Web Proofing Viewer:

  1. In the legacy proofing viewer, click the Open new proofing viewer option in the lower-left corner of a video proof.
    This setting is remembered the next time you launch the Web Proofing Viewer, and is reset only when your browser cache is cleared.

Because not all functionality is currently supported in the Web Proofing Viewer, you can revert to the legacy viewer at any time.

To disable the Web Proofing Viewer and use the Legacy Proofing Viewer:

  1. Click the Menu icon, located in the upper-left corner of the Web Proofing Viewer.
