Flix 6.0 Release notes

Overhauled UI

Overhauled UI

We’ve completely rewritten the Flix interface from the ground up, replacing Flash with modern web technologies which will make Flix faster and more intuitive. It’s now a native desktop app, allowing for better access to OS features such as notifications, the file system, and even allows users to have multiple windows open concurrently to easily re-use assets across sequences.

Photoshop

Improved Photoshop automation

Flix now integrates better with Photoshop, which means you can do more and have better control when using this popular tool with Flix. Photoshop interactions are now provided through an Adobe CEP panel. Highlights include a complete overhaul of the Master Image workflow to make it even more efficient, a new ‘Open as Separate Files’ option, which allows users to make revisions to multiple panels at once, and a new ‘Open Current Image’ action allowing artists to open the panel currently selected in Flix, without leaving Photoshop.

User preferences improved

User preferences

Flix 6.0 introduces User Preferences for the first time, allowing users to configure Flix exactly the way they like - without affecting others in the production. Set up Flix to be the way that’s the most intuitive and efficient for you once, and now it’ll always be that way.

Improved search in Flix

Improved library searching

You can now easily find any board that was ever sent to Flix, filtering your search by sequence, artist and date range. Thanks to 6.0’s core re-architecture, it’s easier and faster for Flix to store and retrieve data, meaning you’ll never have to re-do work that was already done, or waste time finding an old board: the new library makes it quick and easy to find any asset in your project.

Core architecture in Flix

Core re-architecture and new API

In tandem with overhauling the front end, Flix’s backend has been completely re-architected. We’ve split Flix into two apps: Flix Server and Flix Client, making it easier to deploy for studios and individual users. A new database has been introduced to replace the previous file-based system, as well as a RESTful API which offers easier customization. In short, this means Flix will be more reliable and stable overall.

Improved annotation tools

Improved annotation tools

The annotation tools have also been re-designed, giving users more control over the feedback they give, with the addition of brush thickness controls and a color palette.

Improved dialogue management

Improved dialogue management

We’ve made improvements to Flix’s Dialogue management, with the introduction of Dialogue Revisions, text styling (bold, italics, underline) and subtitles visible in the player. Users will now always have access to previous versions of the dialogue: no more accidentally overwriting old dialogues from previous sequence revisions. In addition, a more intuitive Dialogue Workspace means it’s now much easier to enter dialogue based on handwritten notes, and styling and subtitles add more weight to the dialogue, giving artists a better visual cue while pitching their sequence.

revamped exports

Revamped exports

A new Export mechanism makes your handoffs to production easier and more efficient. Just select which panels to export and perform multiple exports at the same time, with pre-set naming conventions that can be customized for your production’s needs. This revamped Export system, along with the frontend rewrite, allows users to select whether the export should apply to selected panels or the whole edit, to run multiple exports in one go.

User management tools

User management tools

New User Management control allows you to easily add, edit, and remove users, and assign them to projects, either standalone in Flix, or integrated with your existing OAUTH or AD/LDAP authentication.
