Keyframe Pro Launches for Feature-Rich Playback and Review

Chris Zurbrigg’s Keyframe MP, the handy and compact media player that was designed specifically for animators, has grown into a professional version, Keyframe Pro, along side the original.

…a feature rich, high-performance playback and review tool designed for professionals and students working in games, tv and film

The Keyframe media player has the tools that artists and animators will find useful. Scrubbing, single frame stepping, lopping options, video flip, bookmarks and more.

Keyframe Pro

Now Keyframe Pro adds some more high-end bits, making it an extremely feature-rick playback and review tool for artists and studios.

Keyframe Pro has an A/B viewer, allows for annotations, and has a Python-based client API. It also supports multiple sources, with seamless playback between those sources. Theses features make it possible to fit Keyframe Pro into a studio pipeline environment easily.


The client API offers a robust and pipeline-friendly, Python module for communicating with the new media review tool. You can script file importation, construct timelines, laid and save projects, and control playback. In fact, anything that can be done through Keyframe Pro’s interface, can be handled through Python scripting.

Unlike it’s little brother Keyframe MP, the Keyframe Pro is only available for 64-bit Windows systems, (Windows 7 SP1 or newer) at the moment.

Keyframe Pro is offered at an introductory price of just $65 right now. There is also an evaluation copy that can be downloaded.
