This series introduces a series of workflows in the Flame Products that allow you to perform shot versioning in a collaborative pipeline.
The newest option is called "Pattern Browsing" which works within Flame without the need for external applications or scripts. This is available in Flame 2019.
The older option is the the Open Clip that also allows you to version external media within your master timeline.So as new versions are delivered from other applications, CGI or VFX, you can choose to use these new versions or automatically update the Open Clips to reflect the latest version of the media. This was done with a series of XML generated files. This is available in Flame 2018.2.
