Workfront’s proofing features aren’t just for static files like PDFs, spreadsheets, or images. Workfront supports more than 150 file types, including video and web captures up to 4GB in size.

Just remember that larger files take longer to upload. Make sure your internet connection is stable before starting a large upload, as a disruption could terminate the upload process.

Workfront’s proof viewer is the ideal place to review and approve video files. Proof recipients can play the video right in the proof viewer. Comments are timestamped, so you know exactly what part of the video the comment is referring to. Proof recipients can even use the markup tools and draw directly on the paused video.

Among the supported video types are MOV, MP4, and H.264.

Uploading a video in Workfront follows the same steps as uploading a static file.

  • Open the project, task, or issue the video should be uploaded to.
  • Select Documents from the left panel menu.
  • From the Add New button, select Proof.
  • Drag and drop the video file into the upload area or use the browse feature.
  • Assign a basic or automated workflow.
  • Set a deadline.
  • Click Create Proof to finish.

Your turn


Don’t forget to alert your co-workers you’re sending them a proof as part of your Workfront training.

If you have a video file available, upload it to a practice project, task, or issue in Workfront. Apply a basic or automated workflow that is similar to the one you’ll normally use—or apply the actual workflow, if you already know what it is.
