    3D visual effects

  • GMask tracer New

    Quickly create sophisticated composites using a lightweight spline-based shape tool with integrated chroma keying tools. Flame now includes the most requested features:

    • Widgets in context
    • A hotkey to select all vertexes
    • More output passes 
    • Live Preview view and Matchbox Camera FX are available in GMask Tracer, enabling Matte processing directly in the node.
  • Context-based Flame Desktop workflow New

    Use Batch reel groups, a better versioning workflow and multi-Batch in the Flame Desktop for a context-based workflow that connects all the areas in the desktop: the timeline, Batch and reels. Choose whichever toolset is right for the task during visual effects finishing and look development for a faster path to completion.

  • Action 3D compositing environment New

    Create visual effects, correct image problems, add lighting effects to 3D composites and more, with a range of effects creation tools in Action. Gain the interactive speed of traditional 2D compositing and powerful 3D visual effects. GPU-accelerated performance helps you to work faster to create visual effects as you blend.

  • Batch procedural compositing New

    Batch, a node-based procedural compositing environment that features the Flame creative toolset, is tightly integrated with the timeline and Flame Desktop. Increase your efficiency with a better workflow and faster performance when building composites in Batch.

  • Media management, import/export and publishing New

    Flame now provides more support for more formats, enabling better media management. 

  • Conform Timeline (enhanced) New

    Get Connected/Conform Timeline enhancements.

  • Matchbox Camera FX New

    Get Autodesk Stingray Algorithms (US site) depth of field, ambient occlusion and reflections. Enhancements include Action, Flame's 3D scene environment, with new scene-based Matchbox Camera FX to bring a suite of physical and creative in-camera Digital FX processing and look development tools. Offers Stingray (US site) technology for high-performance rendering abilities.


    Editorial workflow

  • Connected conform New

    Get a unified media management approach to share, sort and sync media across multiple sequences. Users can finish faster in Flame and Flare. Abilities include: Shared Sources, Source Sequence, Shots Sequence, Shared Segment Syncing and Smart Replace.

  • New camera and format support New

    Gain extended support for the latest cameras and formats with Flame 2017.

  • Workflow improvements New

    Better support creativity with an extensive editorial toolset in Batch FX and Reel Groups on the desktop. 

  • Unified approach to media management New

    Designed for faster browsing and easier organisation, the new MediaHub consolidates media management tools into a single area. The MediaHub helps you more easily browse, search, organise, import and export multiple files at once, resize and apply lookup tables (LUTs) to files on import, and apply presets from one central location.

  • Faster conforming New

    Access an extensive set of conforming and troubleshooting tools in a single task-based area for faster creation of multi-layer timelines. With tight integration between the timeline, event list and media, you can relink faster, troubleshoot more effectively and aggregate the final timeline more efficiently.
