Flix 6.2 View Release Notes

Storyboard Pro Support

Storyboard Pro Support

Storyboard Pro artists rejoice: now you can easily import a sequence drawn in your favorite app into Flix as a new sequence revision. Boards created in SBP are now a part of the Flix ecosystem thanks to Flix 6.2, so SBP users can enjoy the full Flix experience: file management, editorial round-tripping and unbridled collaboration, which lets everyone in the production have visibility over story development. To top it off, camera moves and working with overscans between SBP and editorial is now a seamless process over which production and editors have full control.

Panel Comments

Panel Comments

Flix 6.2 introduces an all-new comments system which allows users to write feedback, thoughts, and notes on individual boards in a sequence. Any comments written on a panel are flagged, so you can see at a glance which boards require attention. The result: cohesive creative collaboration thanks to more streamlined communication between users and stakeholders.

Smart Panel Reuse

Never upload the same file twice: Flix now knows whether a specific file has ever been imported in the past, and will reuse the existing panel instead of creating a new one. You’ll never have to keep track of boards your freelance artists touched outside of Flix—just import them all and Flix will only process the ones it’s seeing for the first time. Enjoy greater flexibility when working offline and a more fluid workflow when working in Storyboard Pro as unchanged panels won’t get re-imported into Flix.

Avid and Flix

Avid Media Composer roundtrip

Collaboration between Story and Editorial departments just got a lot easier, with a new fast, intuitive and reliable workflow between Flix and Avid Media Composer. Round-tripping with Avid is a breeze, with one-click publishing from Flix to Media Composer, and the ability to reconform a sequence from editorial into Flix using a single AAF, seamlessly and accurately conveying all the changes and creative decisions made between the story and editorial departments.

Migration tool

Flix Project Migration Tool

Been using Flix 5 for your projects? There’s now a fast and easy way to move everything across to Flix 6. The new Project Migration Tool enables the migration of existing Flix 5 projects into Flix 6, restoring everything from your projects including version history, dialogue, and timing for all episodes and sequences, allowing you to pick up where you left off with the latest version of Flix.

Improved Exports

Improved Export Preferences

Everything that gets exported out of Flix can now be named and organized in a consistent way. That means all users and departments know where files are and what they’re named. Clickable ‘chips’ allow you to use keywords to create the export paths, which can be set, and enforced, at the show and studio levels, to make sure everything is exported out of Flix coherently. And you have control over both Windows and MacOS paths.

Show Level

And there’s more!

We’ve made a huge number of additional improvements to Flix across the board. These include the ability to filter highlighted panels, so you only view the panels that need attention. A new keyboard shortcut makes it quick and easy to save a sequence. The ‘Starred Shows’ feature pins your favorited shows to the top of your projects list. And there are improved server monitoring tools to make performance diagnostics faster.
