Hiero 11.1 Release notes

Expanded clip properties in Hiero

Expanded source clip properties

Properties for source clips in the Nuke Studio and Hiero timeline have been extended to offer more consistent properties with Read nodes in Nuke and create more efficient workflows across the Nuke Family. Source clip properties are now shown in a Nuke-style Properties panel. This consolidates existing options into a single location, providing faster access and greater control. A new Project root directory allows source footage file paths to be relative, making the sharing of projects between locations or artists easier and more efficient. In addition, source clip properties are accessible through the same Python API as Nuke, improving scripting capabilities and the ability to integrate Hiero into existing pipelines.

Hiero 11.0 Release notes

Hiero disk caching

Timeline Disk Caching

Now including new GPU accelerated disk caching, the latest release of Hiero allows users to cache part or all of a sequence for smoother playback - including footage, soft effects, and track blending. This update is ideal for those with timelines too big for the RAM cache - or users working on smaller machines - who don’t want to localise everything.

Nonlinear re-times from AAF

Nonlinear re-times from AAF

Nonlinear re-times are now automatically recreated as a soft effect when importing AAF files, so users don't have to recreate them manually. These can then be managed alongside other soft effects - linear re-times, transforms, crops, etc.
