⚠️ Please note: To use this plugin, you need an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription and an installed version of Adobe After Effects.
With the Filestage plugin for Adobe After Effects, you can upload compositions directly from After Effects to Filestage. This allows you to streamline the review process and start receiving feedback immediately.
Furthermore, the feedback received on compositions can be reviewed directly in After Effects without the need to switch back to Filestage.

Uploading a composition to Filestage
1. Select the project in Filestage to which you want to upload a composition
2. Upload the composition
⚠️ Please note: Only Filestage-supported formats can be uploaded. You can find the list of supported file formats here; https://help.filestage.io/en/articles/1482221-supported-file-formats.
If you attempt to upload a composition in a different format, you will receive a warning indicating that the format is not supported.
Viewing and interacting with comments
After your reviewers have given their feedback on the composition in Filestage, you can still view and interact with the comments within the Filestage plugin window in After Effects.
To view comments, click on the comments within the Filestage plugin window. When you click on a comment, the associated comment will be highlighted, and the playhead will jump to the frame in Filestage. This allows you to see exactly which point the comment refers to.
Interacting with comments
While you won't see the comments directly within the After Effects composition viewer, you can still work with the comments in Filestage. You can reply to comments or take any necessary actions within the Filestage plugin. However, please note that these interactions will not be reflected within the After Effects project itself.
By using the synchronized playhead and accessing the comments in the Filestage plugin window, you can effectively review and address the feedback provided by your reviewers.
