Collaborative Creative Project Management
Flix lives at the heart of your pre-production, making it easier for teams to collaborate together and iterate on ideas. Everyone including artists, production staff, directors, editors, and others have access to the latest versions of every section of your projects, be they long form or episodic. Comments, notes, and feedback can be left on individual boards for review and discussion across teams. Even people contributing from different geographical locations are kept in the loop: work with remote artists just as if they were right there at the studio, with direct access to Flix wherever they are.
Enhance your workflow
Flix lets you work the way you’re used to, be it with Photoshop or Storyboard Pro. Whether you work with Layer Comps, Timeline Frames or your Layer stack, Flix takes care of naming, organizing and managing your Photoshop files so that you don’t have to. Need to find a specific file? Access every single one ever sent to Flix via the Library, letting you find and filter boards by sequence, artist, and date created.
Do less admin
You can easily make revisions to existing boards in Flix, and there’s no need to waste time figuring out naming conventions, server structures, and versioning systems. Flix handles all the files generated, keeps previous revisions for easy access, and organizes everything for you for seamless creative collaboration across your production.
Efficient Editorial Roundtrip
Story to editorial…
Flix brings order to the traditionally chaotic process of editorial round-tripping. Easily send your edit from Flix to Premiere with timing, ordering and audio data, with a simple click and drag and drop. Everyone in the production gets notified of new publishes to Premiere by email. An automatically generated Contact Sheet makes it easy for everyone involved to be aware of new editorial deliveries.
…editorial to story
Sending your edit from editorial back to story also becomes much more simple: Flix will take care of relinking the clips to their original PSD files, handle effects and camera moves, extract audio, break your edit into shots, store the reference QuickTime for easy access, and notify everyone in the production.
Powerful Pitch Process
Accurately convey how you envisioned your story playing out, by adding a voiceover to your boards right from your desk. Time your sequence to an existing audio track directly in Flix, or record audio at the same time. The recorded timing and audio is automatically passed to editorial, ensuring all the creative decisions from story are preserved.
The dialogue handwritten by artists on their boards is easily viewable on the thumbnails in Flix’s Dialogue workspace, making it easy to keep track of and input into the text box. What’s more, Flix keeps track of all the iterations of your dialogue and lets you easily find and restore previous revisions.
