Enhanced VFX Workflow Collaboration

As the tool of choice for complex finishing, Flame’s hub capabilities are enhanced with support for your definable VFX shot Start Frame metadata, enabling better workflows and collaboration.
Player Metadata Overlay
Using the new content-aware Player overlay menu, you can display clip metadata, save presets, and share them. This allows for rapid, in-context viewing of current segment metadata to easily review elements in complex, fast-paced, collaborative workflows. In addition, multiple options have been added to the Burn-In Metadata tool such as Start Frame, Handles, Timeline FX, and Batch Iteration to increase your productivity.
Paint Workflow Improvements & Stability
Batch Paint has received several new functionalities and stability fixes. It can now apply changes to multiple strokes at once and to track strokes directly in Paint. These, improvements, in addition to updates such as definable brush presets, a preference to set the default status of the Consolidate option, and a cleaner user interface showing all controls, will improve the daily usage of Batch Paint.
