Reviewing a Video in admation
One key difference between videos and static images is that users need to take screenshots of the video file first. Users then annotate the still framed versions of the video file.
To review videos in admation, you will need to download our snapshot extension for your browser, which will allow you to take those screenshots.
To get started, click on your Approvals button to locate the video file that’s been sent to you. Click on it to access the Full Screen Approval view. Watch the video using the play button.
Once you have found a spot in the video that you would like to provide feedback on, pause the video file. Then click the Take Snapshot and Annotate button in admation. Once you have taken a screenshot of a video, you can annotate it.
Submit your feedback and comments on the still image as usual.
If you have multiple snapshots, they will be found at the bottom of your page. Hover over the screenshots to preview, and click on them to bring them up. Each snapshot will show a time-stamp, reflecting when in the video, you took your image.
Adding Your Own Annotations to a Snapshot
To add your markups to a screenshot, select a markup tool from the bottom of the screen. Most users select the box tool. Click and drag to draw a textbox where you can type in your feedback. Click Save once you are done.
If you need a refresher, here’s a handy guide on adding feedback and comments to still images in admation.
Click the Review button to continue watching the rest of video. Remember to click Pause if you’d like to take snapshots for feedback purposes.
Reviewing Other User's Snapshot Comments
If other stakeholders have also provided feedback on a video file, you can view their comments in the side panel under Approval Info. This is found on the right hand side of your screen. As with your own snapshots, you can click on other user’s snapshots to view their feedback. These are also located at the bottom of the page with their names.
This feature is particularly handy to check that you aren’t sending conflicting feedback to the submitter.
Deleting a Snapshot
To delete a snapshot, hover over the snapshot you want to delete. All snapshots are found at the bottom of the approval page. Then click the Trash icon.
