Every aspect of production connected

Autodesk Flow connects people, workflows, and data across the entire production lifecycle from earliest concept to final delivery.

Imagine a world where fragmented pipelines are gone and data is connected

That vision becomes a reality with Autodesk Flow. We're building Flow to unify workflows and data across the production lifecycle, so teams can access and manage their assets wherever and whenever they need them, regardless of the tools they use. Harnessing the power of an open ecosystem, open standards, and connected data, Flow will help studios streamline manual processes, collaborate more efficiently, and unlock new opportunities for innovation and creativity. Powerful visualization tools will transform disorganized data into compelling insights, helping teams identify risks, solve problems, and make the right creative decisions.

Autodesk's vision for Flow

Collaborate across teams, locations, and studios

Connect teams across the production pipeline to a single source of truth for all assets, versions, and feedback.

The power of connected workflows

The first capabilities on Flow will connect teams and data across the production pipeline.

Connect On-Set to Post

Review pre-production data in Flow before a shoot begins. With camera data streamed to the cloud and made available directly within Avid Media Composer, editors can get to work the moment a shoot wraps.

Collaborate across teams

See shots, the latest edits, and all other relevant data right in Flow. Assign tasks to animators working in Maya and FX artists working in Houdini. Artists no longer have to chase down files with access to everything they need to get started, including storyboards and production data, right in the tools they already use every day. 

Quickly see the impact of changes

Use AI-powered scheduling features to grasp the downstream effect of changes in creative direction or resource allocation on your overall project timeline and other projects in your studio pipeline.

The first workflows powered by Flow

Autodesk Moxion and ShotGrid will be the first Autodesk solutions integrated with Flow, creating new, extended workflows for collaboration across the production lifecycle.

Shaping the future of Media & Entertainment

From memorable CG moments to building software that withstands the test of time, Autodesk's Leona Frank, Ben Fischler, and Jeff Bell weigh in on the emerging trends shaping how we work and provide a glimpse of a future where open standards, cloud-based workflows, and platform-based production pipelines will be the norm.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How will Flow connect with existing Autodesk offerings and third-party tools?

To connect siloed data through the entire production lifecycle, we’re building Flow with three core principles in mind:  

  • Open standards are being used to allow production data to flow seamlessly from tool to tool and department to department.  
  • Flow will be an open ecosystem that both Autodesk products and third-party solutions can plug into.  
  • Flow will supercharge our existing desktop products with data, automations, and insights that help you iterate quickly and make more informed creative decisions.  

ShotGrid (which will become Flow Production Tracking) and Moxion (which will become Flow Capture) will be the first Autodesk products integrated with Flow, creating new, extended workflows for collaboration across the production lifecycle. Enabled by open standards, Flow will allow our existing content creation tools, starting with Maya, and third-party tools like SideFX’s Houdini and Avid Media Composer, to plug into an open ecosystem.

How does Flow integrate with the Autodesk Platform and other industry clouds?

Autodesk Flow is part of the Autodesk Platform, which consists of three industry clouds and a set of common, cloud-based services. In addition to Autodesk Flow, the Autodesk Platform includes industry clouds for manufacturing (Autodesk Fusion) and architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (Autodesk Forma). Autodesk Platform Services offers APIs and services to help visualize and optimize data, build end-to-end custom workflows, and connect processes, applications, and enterprise software.

When will Flow be available?

Customers will be able to request early access to Flow starting in January 2024. Wider availability is anticipated for later in the year, though timing is subject to change.
