Autodesk Flame: Power Your Ideas With Time-Saving Tools

Chaos Vantage

This latest update to Autodesk® Flame®, Autodesk® FlareTM, and Autodesk® Flame® Assist provides VFX artists with a slew of enhancements to fast-track their creative workflows and drive productivity. The new, next-generation camera tracker sees significant performance improvements and a new point stabilizer manual tracking mode. Furthermore, Motion Vector maps can now be cached as clips, allowing compositors to easily re-use assets across sessions. Artists can now also view any channel of a multichannel media source directly in the Flame timeline.

CHALLENGES

As client expectations evolve and become more demanding, Flame artists need to be able to adjust and modify color/grades, composite, and do final editorial, interactively. Artists need to efficiently capture their clients’ attention and get approvals, in a time sensitive environment, to stay on deadline and budget. As software has become more accessible, it has enhanced the services and differentiation that Flame owners can offer. Being able to do more services in-house, say ‘yes’ to the client’s request, and always answer the ‘911’ fix it call has become more important than ever to keep the client coming back for more.

Camera Tracker Improvements

Building on the newest Camera Analysis node, artists now have more control over the speed and quality of their 3D camera track. Fast, intermediate, and high-quality options are now available. Furthermore, for shots requiring manual tracking, a nine-way stabilizer option allows artists to place and track individual points on parallaxing pixels to achieve a camera solve

Motion Vector Caching

Motion Vector maps, which are used for motion warp tracking, projector tracking, and the new Camera Analysis node, can now be stored as a standard clip and made visible in Flame’s workspace. These valuable assets can then be more easily re-used and transported, giving artists more time to focus on being creative.  

Timeline, Media Handling

When working with multi-channel media (.psd .exr) in the Flame timeline, an editor can now expose different RGB and Alpha channels directly at the timeline level. This workflow enhancement will allow for graphic versioning, CG render browsing, and review, right in the timeline.

Media Hub, Media Format Enhancements 

This update includes the latest Camera Raw debayer updates for BMD Raw 2.1 and Red 8.0.3.
