Recorded in: Autodesk Flame 2019.1 Update
This video focuses on media versioning or shot versioning when working in a collaborative production pipeline.
In other words, you may start off with the original camera media in your timeline or your composite.
But later in the production, other artists may give you the same piece of media with grading applied or even additional VFX from a 3rd party application.
This is quite common in a multi-artist production pipeline.
So with Flame being the central point in the pipeline, you need to be able to manage and choose all these incoming versions.
You could manage the versioning using the Open Clip workflow shown in previous releases of Flame.
However with Flame 2019, a more developed workflow known as “Pattern Browsing” can do the same thing but without having to create or script separate Open Clip XMLs.
Pattern Browsing works on a series of pattern-based tokens that you can set and this allows Flame to recognise multiple files as part of the same versioned clip as its developed.
