The Video Sharing app embedded in Limecraft Flow allows users to easily and securely share individual clips or collections of material with third parties without granting them full access in their Workspace. 


This article explains how you can collaborate on shared material by reviewing, approving and uploading material.


How Shared Links are set up

Upon creation of a shared link, the settings imposed by the producer determine which actions are enabled and whether name and/or password is needs to be filled out before accessing the content.

If necessary: identify yourself

In case the producer of the shared link has set up authentication, you may need to provide your name and/or a password to access the content.

Review

In case material is shared for the purpose of review and approval, you can do so by setting the status of each clip.


Commenting

To add comments to a specific timecode (and or region on the screen), click on the desired frame and location and start typing.


To save the comment, click outside the text field or press Shift + Enter. Your comment will be displayed in the sidebar:

Download material


Depending on the settings applied when the shared link was created, you might have the possibility to download material. You can download one clip at a time or make a bulk download.

Note: At this moment, the bulk download results into a zip file with each clip in their separate folder. This will be improved in one of the coming releases.
