Features and Benefits

flame Version 7 Features
  • Colour Warper for intuitive master color tool including selective color correction and scene matching
  • Modular Keyer for radical new approach to keying based on 3D color space
  • Tracer for selective multi-keyer for edge-keying and rotoscoping
  • Major Batch Advancements-new caching mechanism, I/O node and random access pipeline
  • Advanced Visualization-Monitor Calibration, New Film Simulation LUTs, Grids/Guides
  • 3D Deformations enable animatable deformation of 3D models in Action
  • Expressions -user customizable 'signature' effects
  • Scripting, allowing remote project approvals and monitoring via web browser
  • 2D/3D Integration with 3ds max including full-res texture import, to accelerate workflow for 3D work like logos, text and titles
Colour Warper
  • Radically new and fast software color corrector emulates more traditional primary and selective color correction (telecine) approach
  • Industry-proven interaction models combine with landmark new color-space manipulation algorithms
  • Speeds up technical tasks such as color matching scenes, or black and white point adjustments
  • Match feature analyzes images and automatically matches scenes, colors or ranges of colors
  • Fine Tuning tool warps RGB space to produce never-before possible precision adjustments
  • Accessibility to intuitive precision tools such as a GUI-based vector scope and a graphical 3D color tool
  • Allows for multiple levels of precise color- balancing and selective color correction in a single pass
  • Animatable functions allow easy adjustments and controls of lighting in a scene over time
  • Accurate edge-keying tool, ideal for keying hair, fur
  • Supports multiple keying points, each with individual control over key parameters
  • Pull keys from live material (non-bluescreen)
  • Improved animation allows artists to track or animate a garbage mask while keeping full control over shape interpolation
  • Artist can add vertices between animated vertices and preserve proper shape animation
Modular Keyer
  • Innovative pipeline environment enables processes to be added as needed, and resulting key viewed in-context
  • Histogram of 3D RGB space enables fast and accurate manipulation of key parameters
  • Powerful new algorithm ideal for pulling keys such as transparencies, quickly and accurately
  • Sub-pixel accurate Keyer (RGB, YUV, HLS, RGBCMYL and custom)
  • Variable edge treatment and softness, with gaussian blur
  • Shadow, reflection and transparency keying capability
  • Unlimited trackable spline-based animatable garbage masks
Channel Editor Including New Expressions
  • Enables artists to get information faster by viewing all channels as a list, sorting channels in different ways
  • Expressions enable creation of powerful new effects formerly only available in script- based systems
  • Easy grouping and time-cascading of effects
  • Replace channel with Expression referencing other channels/perform mathematical operations between them
  • Relate different characteristics of an element, e. g. attach object shininess to its distance from light source
Film Tools and Advanced Visualization
  • Grain management with analysis and matching of various film stock
  • Allows users to reliably reproduce images that match the look of projected film
  • Calibration, using X-Rite device (or Barco CaliTalk) ensures accurate measurement of color levels
  • User can make manual adjustments to monitor curves (Gamma, Gain and Offset)
  • Enables user to have a standard from which any project-specific tweaks can be executed
  • Load custom LUTs or use film S-curves to simulate what specific print stocks (vision and premier)look like when projected
Grids and Guides
  • Fully customizable guides enable smooth transitions between different aspect ratios
  • Fully customizable safes
  • Fully customizable work area (ie, academy guides within full-aperture 35mm)
2D /3D Integration with 3ds max
  • Dramatic in-context workflow acceleration for everyday types of 3D work-logos, text, titles
  • Direct import/export of 3ds max (.3DS) camera data, models with multi-resolution textures, surface attributes
  • Support for high-resolution textures, without limitation of partition resolution, increases rendering quality
Action Module
  • Effects and compositing in a true interactive 3D design environment, ideal for in-context creative decision-making"
  • Infinite number of layers, each with independent control of key, color correction, tracking and axis attributes for in-context adjustment
  • Extensive 3D capabilities, including: model importation, text creation, displacement effects with lighting and shadows, an unlimited number of light sources, and a powerful on-line particle system for explosions or atmospheric effects
  • New Texture Projector projects images onto a 3D scene using various compositing modes (blend, additive, etc. ), allowing users to recreate 3D environments from 2D imagery easily, create advanced lighting effects
  • True to life camera attributes, including depth-of-field
  • Fully-animatable and editable parameters
  • Up to 4 simultaneous views
  • New camera node and improvements, including free camera -parent objects to/from camera; free camera simplifies support of motion control data
  • Surface blending modes, e.g. transfer modes such as screen, min, max, multiply in surface ul
  • Improved Bicubic animation; choose between shape or explicit X, Y, Z animation
  • High powered module enabling high efficiency, quick and reliable execution based on batch processing trees; view each node in-context of entire scene
  • Full integration with major modules and sparks®
  • Powerful new caching and bypassing functions allow automatic or user-set "pre-rendering" of certain parts of a Batch tree, dramatically increasing interactivity speed, especially with larger trees
  • Avoid reprocessing the same nodes when navigating the timeline
  • I/O Node supports wire and on-the-fly remote frame store transfers 1 (cross- resolution) into/from RAM; import and export image files from/to the system disk (all IFF-supported formats); excellent for testing 3D render iterations; avoids data duplication, and long delays while importing/exporting sequences; includes all import/export image functions
  • Scripting allows all the power of UNIX scripts within flame: scripts can be executed at any point, enabling custom effects, preview clips, QuickTime movies, or e-mail and Web notification
  • Batch Log outputs current status (what it is processing, in how much time)to HTML or text file, so artists can remotely monitor render progress via web browser
