Generation AM is a visual desktop for moving images, designed to make the studio workflow really flow. Generation AM interfaces with asset and studio project management solutions, providing a powerful complementary featureset. Playback of 4K+ and stereoscopic images, multiple format support such as EXR, DPX, and RED, combined with a responsive interface and a mature toolset, gives Generation AM a visual overview that allows you to work faster and more efficiently.
From the beginning, Generation was developed within studio environments to ensure that it meshed with real-world conditions. Generation AM combines a comprehensive shot-tracking system while working with EDLs and playlists. The system includes annotation and grease pencil drawing tools for live discussions of shots or sequences. Comments entered by one artist appear immediately on any connected machines, whether on the same LAN or at remote locations connected via VPN. Annotated frames are indicated in the timeline but the comments are hidden during playback. A complete record of all decisions and client requests is saved with each project.
Generation AM Features
Revision histories for every shot are displayed as thumbnail stacks with the most recent version at the bottom. The current version plays back automatically, or custom playlists can be built by dragging over individual shots. If changes to a composite shot have been made since the last rendering of a clip, Generation AM flags that shot for rendering.
Generation AM provides disk-based playback of content at resolutions of up to 4K and supports all standard file formats. Content can be processed and rendered out at any bit-depth, including floating point. Generation AM is GPU-accelerated, so the user can switch between views or resize images during real-time playback.
Playing back stereoscopic files on a vast range of different display devices, and with different encoding methods, allows anybody in to check the workflow, from the VFX Supervisor with extensive onset technological requirements to the individual artist with standard 3D glasses to quickly check the look and feel of the shots.
Multi Playback Layout
Multiple clips can be played back simultaneously with a user definable offset to quickly compare versions and check for continuity. The clips can be arranged on the workspace completely to your preference.
Python Scripting Support
Hook into Generation AM and control it with your scripting language of choice. Use any combination of LUA and Python to give your IT department the freedom they need and the control they want.
EDL XML Project importing
Generation AM supports standard EDL formats and will autoconform playlists. Edits made in Generation AM, including shot replacements, trimming etc. can be exported as EDLs back to the editor's suite.
XML Conversion of Scratch-style Projects
Work with Scratch projects in and out of Generation AM quickly and dynamically. Workflow and adaptation into existing pipelines have always been key features.
3D LUTs, in a wide variety of flavors, can be applied per clip, per project, and per display. The quick selector bar allows for easy switching between different LUTs to ensure the output is exactly what the client needs.
Display Color Controls
Apply Gain, Gamma, and Brightness and Contrast adjustments. New log linear color controls, film based stop controls, individual red, green, blue and alpha channel views. Flipping and flopping image mirroring to freshen the perspective of repeated viewing of sequences.
Red and EXR Support
With the new direct support for playing back RED and EPIC sequences, the integration into modern production pipelines takes another step forward. OpenEXR playback can check for any combination of included layers.
Dissolves and Improved Editing Controls
Easier editing and dissolves between clips makes it a snap to conform your EDL into an online project, allowing you to concentrate on the actual work of making your production look great.
Crop and letter box sequences to view how images format on a range of display devices.
Local and Network Proxies
To speed up your workflow again, proxies can sit on the network or on your local drive. Just flip the switch to change between faster playback and company-wide synchronized proxies.
Per clip audio annotations allow for recording and attachment of audio notes to items on the desktop. Save time typing instructions, just say them.
Overlay metadata information on the screen. Image format information, timecode, file paths, etc. to track sequences and versions.
