Access unique workflows, creative tools, interactivity, and processing power for every project.
In the interactive creative environment of Flame, there is minimal creative or technical guesswork: what you see on your screen is what you get in your final image. Interactivity and playback performance in Action, Batch, and the timeline is accelerated by Reactor, a 16-bit floating point GPU. And now, artists can accelerate their workflows even more by adding a second GPU to access Flame Background Reactor. This enables them to perform rendering and I/O tasks concurrently, for faster, more efficient background rendering of clips, sequences, and batch setups.
Flame now offers an end-to-end 4K and Ultra HD workflow to help with your most challenging projects.
The creative environment and efficient finishing workflow in Flame now fully supports 4K and Ultra HD throughout your creative process, from ingest and color management to real-time broadcast monitoring and output.
Perform 3D compositing as fast as 2D with exceptional speed and an interactive workflow.
Get a broad range of innovative tools for 3D visual effects, compositing, and advanced graphics within a tightly integrated creative environment:
The highly responsive visual environment of the Flame Desktop enables faster experimentation and development of your most creative ideas.
The Flame Desktop features tight integration between the desktop reels, the timeline, and the Batch procedural compositing environment with the ability to:
With a range of effects creation tools in Action, you can create visual effects, correct image problems, add lighting effects to 3D composites, and more.
Batch, a node-based procedural compositing environment that features the Flame creative toolset, is tightly integrated with the timeline and Flame Desktop.
Increase your efficiency with a better workflow and faster performance when building composites in Batch.
More easily mix footage from digital cinema cameras, film scans, and video with support for ACES, the Academy Color Encoding System 16-bit format.
The optimized, floating-point color-processing engine in Flame uses the Academy/ASC color transform format and provides the color transforms needed to convert between the ACES reference color space and a wide variety of input and output devices. This enables better creative feedback by providing an accurate and consistent representation of floating-point linear color spaces across editing, 3D VFX, and grading.
New in Flame 2015: support for REC 2020, the video standard for Ultra HD.
Take on finishing challenging stereoscopic 3D (S3D) post-production projects.
For true 3D visual effects, Flame helps you deliver S3D projects faster.
Use CG assets in finishing via open workflows with 3D animation software and make changes in post when speed and interactivity are essential.
Oversee projects, easily create consistent looks, and correctly match graded and 3D VFX shots to editorial intention using the redesigned timeline.
Supported by Reactor, the GPU-driven pipeline, the timeline provides greater interactivity and effects workflow. With a rich multilayer editorial feature set for building timelines from scratch or matching offline cuts, the timeline enables you to:
Designed for faster browsing and easier organization, the new MediaHub consolidates media management tools into a single area.
The MediaHub helps you more easily browse, search, organize, import, and export multiple files at once; resize and apply LUTs (lookup tables) to files on import; and apply presets from one central location. When you are working in a particular project, the Media Panel provides access to all project media through an always-accessible gateway where you can easily organize, save, and sort source clips, sequences, reels, desktops, and Batch setup snapshots.
New in Flame 2015, Media Panel enhancements make it easier to browse, move, copy, and organize your assets. You can display and scrub larger proxies in both full screen and dual view modes. And a new Dual Library View and structural improvements provide artists with more control over media organization.
Access an extensive set of conforming and troubleshooting tools in a single task-based area for faster creation of multilayer timelines.
With tight integration between the timeline, event list, and media, you can relink faster, troubleshoot more effectively, and more efficiently aggregate the final timeline. Visual cues, a color-code event list, one-click relinking of matched shots, and an integrated player for shot verification all help to conform timelines and resolve issues quickly.
Flame includes advanced conform tools:
