Overall Satisfaction with Wipster

Wipster enables me to streamline the video review and approval process by making the note-taking process visual via its intuitive user interface. With over twenty years in producing video in my background, getting notes from stakeholders has always been the most frustrating part of the job. Wipster makes video review/approval a breeze!

For those who have to receive edit notes, Wipster makes your life a lot simpler via their integration with Adobe Creative Cloud. The integration with Premiere Pro allows you to sync the sequence to the notes and markers give me references, rather than having to hunt down an email with timecode. The integration with Creative Cloud was a game-changer and ultimately what won me over!

If you deal with any form of media that you need others to look at, make notes, or approve, Wipster is the go-to solution, hands down!
  • Strong integration with Adobe products.
  • Very capable media management tools.
  • Ability to put notes on PDFs, audio or video.
  • The mobile app needs a bit of work, but it is functional.
  • Turnover in their sales staff has left me waiting for a response at times. I loved the product so much I needed to add more storage and another team member to my account.
  • Wipster has helped me finish projects faster.
  • Track versions of videos (no more files names with "Final Version number 3").
  • I've added one of our clients as a Guest Team member - which has allowed them to upload their own media (as it's been shot) and then give me notes for their edit. This has sped up the project and made it possible to make deadlines quickly.
It does about the same thing, but not as well. At the time of my looking at it, Frame.io just wasn't as good of a product.
I ended up making a personal connection with the team at Wipster, who aggressively listen to their users, understand what frustrates us as creators (because they are creators too) and make a product to meet their own needs.
It would be a ten, if I hadn't had issues contacting sales to buy more space/seats and the issues I've had with their iOS app.
Overall, it's a home run of a product and with time it has only gotten better.

I actively talk about Wipster and show off how I'm able to get so much done with my clients because of this tool all of the time! If you own or work at a digital agency, it's a must! I'm using Wipster for short and long-form media, it just makes everything so much easier for me.

Using Wipster

1 - I'm the primary user within our organization but recently added one of our clients as a guest team member. This has opened up a new means of working with our clients as an agency. This client has their own internal team on site that does video production, recently they contracted us to give them post-production services to allow them to focus on their strengths and work faster with us back in the edit bay providing edits.
2 - I'd describe their skills as intermediate. They understand digital systems and media management but may not have the background or knowledge on how some simple fixes in the production pipeline can make the project work faster and more agile. Their skills are more built around great storytelling rather than technical systems.
  • Short-form - will render out segments from a project to get feedback while we're still working on the narrative.
  • Long-form - will send up a very rough cut for a co-producer to give me notes on dialog issues in the narrative we're trying to tease out.
  • Media for clients - often times we already have all the notes we need and just need an approval from stakeholders.
  • Adding one of our clients as a team member with access to only their own folder.
  • Using the publish feature inside of Wipster with Wistia - so the video gets pushed to where it needs to go when it's the green light.
Wipster has become a must-have tool to do my job!
