Adobe Completes Acquisition of Frame.io

Adobe today announced the completion of its acquisition of Frame.io, a leading cloud-based video collaboration platform. Combining Adobe’s industry-leading video editing offerings, including Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Adobe After Effects, with Frame.io’s cloud-based review and approval capabilities will radically accelerate the creative process and provide a platform for the final video.

The growing demand for video means that video teams must create more and more content in close collaboration with dispersed stakeholders. Today, video review and approval processes across multiple channels are different, leading to inefficient and time-consuming workflows. To address this inefficiency, video tools must prioritize the cloud, with collaboration at its core, so that all stakeholders can effectively contribute to the creative process with the right controls, feedback mechanisms, and security.

With over a million users, Frame.io simplifies the video production process, enabling editors and project stakeholders to work seamlessly through cloud-based workflows. The addition of Frame.io allows Adobe, in conjunction with its ecosystem of partners, to go beyond video editors to a broader range of customers, teams, and businesses.

“As video becomes more important, we are proud to bring Frame.io’s industry-leading cloud-native workflow capabilities to Creative Cloud,” said Scott Belsky, Creative Cloud Product Director and Vice -Executive president. “We are committed to enabling collaboration beyond Adobe applications with the growing number of third-party applications in the creative ecosystem that Frame.io strongly supports.”

Now that the acquisition is complete, Adobe, in partnership with Frame.io, will make the creative process more collaborative, productive, and efficient to unleash even more creativity for everyone:

  • Acquisition of Frame.io brings Adobe Creative Cloud collaboration services to video and makes it easier for teams to work with Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and other Adobe Creative Cloud applications.
  • All Creative Cloud customers enjoy seamless collaboration on video projects with Frame.io workflow features originally built into Adobe Creative Cloud applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe after Effects, and Adobe Photoshop.
  • With the addition of Frame.io, Adobe continues to collaborate with all creative stakeholders beyond Adobe apps, including third-party apps in the creative ecosystem.
