Using mentions to build interaction

Last Updated: Mar 04, 2016 05:01PM GMT

When you make a comment on Aframe, you can include a mention directed at another user on the project team. This will in turn trigger an email notification to their inbox, including a link to what you're talking about. This is really handy for getting your collaborators attention and focusing it on a specific editorial idea. You can use it to frame discussions around how a group of clips work together, or whether considerations need to be given to the treatment of a particular clip in post.


To mention a fellow user on Aframe, click on the Media tab and open a clip in the player by double clicking on its thumbnail, then select the speech bubble to the bottom left of the video. (For more details on how to do this, click here). In the body of the text, type in @[username], as shown below:

You will notice that as soon as you type the @ character, it will bring up a list of the people in the team for this project, which you can select.

As soon as I select 'Add comment', the user receives an email notification with a link to the clip, shown here:

When the user selects the link in the email, they are taken to the exact frame the comments was made. Here they could then respond to my mention with one of their own - this time directed at me!

So there it is - simple, effective collaboration based around streaming video via the cloud.
