Features for Flame

Visual effects tools for 3D compositing

Explore a range of technical and creative visual effects tools for 3D compositing, tracking, text, masking, keying, and look development. Featuring Action 3D compositing and Batch procedural compositing environments, Flame® software helps you work quickly and interactively as you integrate 2D and 3D elements into finished composites.

    3D visual effects

  • GMask tracer New

    Quickly create sophisticated composites using a lightweight spline-based shape tool with integrated chroma keying tools.

  • Post-production management works with Shotgun New

    With a subscription to the Shotgun collaboration service, you can more easily integrate Flame with other tools in your facility’s post-production pipeline.

  • Lightbox and Matchbox Action tools

    Expertly composite and create visual effects with new look development tools and improved color management. The new Lightbox and the addition of Matchbox in Action enables you to use GPU-accelerated GLSL shaders to solve artistic challenges right where they occur – in the 3D compositing environment. Improved color management provides more precision when developing looks.

  • Context-based Flame desktop workflow

    Use new Batch reel groups, a better versioning workflow, and multi-Batch in the Flame 2016 desktop for a context-based workflow that connects all the areas in the desktop: the timeline, Batch, and reels. Choose whichever toolset is right for the task during visual effects finishing and look development, for a faster path to completion.

  • Better interactivity

    Improve interactive performance during client-attend sessions with better proxy handling, Reactor 3.0 for faster rendering in Action, and foreground export.

  • Batch improvements based on user feedback

    Navigate schematics, access node information, and handle node inputs that have different bit-depths, with several improvements in Batch and BFX that are based on user feedback. 

  • Planar tracking

    Expertly and easily track perspective changes with the versatile, high-performing Planar Tracker. Streamlined for forward and backward analysis, quick deletion of keyframes, quick reference updates, and automatic extrapolation, the Planar Tracker works in a way that is similar to the Stabilizer and is available in common Action objects (GMask, Perspective Grid, and Axis).

  • 3D visual effects and compositing tools

    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.

  • Unparalleled performance

    Access unique workflows, creative tools, interactivity, and processing power for every project. Interactivity and playback performance in Action, Batch, and the timeline is accelerated by Reactor, a 16-bit floating point GPU.

  • End-to-end 4K workflow

    Flame now offers an end-to-end 4K and Ultra HD workflow to help with your most challenging projects.

  • Flame Desktop

    Use the highly responsive visual environment of the Flame Desktop to perform faster experimentation and development of your creative ideas. The Flame Desktop features tight integration between the desktop reels, the timeline, and the Batch procedural compositing environment.

  • Action 3D compositing environment

    Create visual effects, correct image problems, add lighting effects to 3D composites, and more, with a range of effects creation tools in Action. Gain the interactive speed of traditional 2D compositing and powerful 3D visual effects. GPU-accelerated performance helps you work faster to create visual effects as you blend.

  • Batch procedural compositing

    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.

  • Modern color management

    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. 

  • Stereoscopic 3D finishing

    Take on finishing challenging stereoscopic 3D (S3D) post-production projects. For true 3D visual effects, Flame helps you deliver S3D projects faster.

  • Workflow with 3D

    Use CG assets in finishing via open workflows with 3D animation software and make changes in post when speed and interactivity are essential.
