What's new in Flame 2022?
Camera Analysis Node - Motion Matchmove Solver
Flame’s new Camera Analysis tool provides busy VFX artists with remarkable, automatic camera solves and 3D geometry output. This new, next-generation camera tracker uses cutting-edge scene reconstruction algorithms similar to autonomous vehicle smart ‘vision’ and reality capture point cloud reconstruction. Combining Structure from Motion (SfM) and visual simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) techniques, this new node produces thousands of accurately tracked points, enabling high-quality results in minutes.
The Camera Analysis node can operate in a manual or all-automatic mode to solve camera field of view (FOV). With machine learning, it discards moving ‘bad data’ like humans, vehicles, and sky regions that would otherwise have to be manually removed from a standard scene-based solve.
This toolset allows Flame artists to place 3D objects in a moving shot and apply masking for compositing, selective effects or color grading. Macros for re-projection also allow artists to quickly place cleaned up ‘patches’ or new elements into a scene.
Integrated Finishing Toolset
Tangent colorist control panel support
Flame gets expanded Tangent colorist control panel support for Tangent Hub’s Arc, Element, Wave 2, Ripple, and Element-Vs devices, allowing artists to color grade entirely from a tactile control panel. Tangent colourist control panels and iOS or Android apps can be purchased separately from tangentwave.co.uk.
Colour Management LUT Loader Matchbox
A new shader, ColourMgmt, lets artists import an external file-based Lookup Table (LUT) or Colour Transform directly inside Action and Image nodes in Flame and Flare. Artists can then apply their ‘look’ over the entirety or a part of a picture via a Selective, through a traditional or ML-based key and GMask isolation.
Loading previously made, standard Lookup Table (LUT) or Colour Transforms from a wide variety of file formats (.3dl .cube .ctf .ccc) allows for instant creative manipulation of all or part of a picture. Imported LUT files can also be applied in a user-prescribed working colour space.
Blackmagic RAW Support – Camera Raw Media
Artists can now import Blackmagic Design RAW media in Flame, Flare, Flame Assist, and Lustre. Its default tagged colour space is set to BMD Film / WideGamut Gen5. There is also a scene-linear BMD WideGamut Gen5 CS available in Cameras/BlackmagicDesign.
NDI® – Software Video Preview
In an ongoing effort to provide remote work solutions, artists can now offer a high-quality viewing experience to multiple remote viewers with Network Device Interface (NDI®). NDI® video preview streaming support enables artists to multicast full screen video across an IP computer network in Flame, Flare, and Flame Assist. NDI® is compatible with webcasting software like OBS studio, Skype, Zoom, Ecamm Live or cloud-based services like SetStream (https://setstream.io). Using these 3rd party tools, Flame video preview can also be streamed to public streaming services like YouTube Live, Facebook, Periscope, and Twitch.
A slew of creative finishing improvements based on community feedback have been added to Flame as well, including a streamlined Linux install and configuration experience, many Gmask legacy features, being made available in the GMask Tracer, a larger curves view in MasterGrade, and an update to Python 3, required for integrating Flame into a modern pipeline.
