FLOW Media Management - Integrations

Post Production - Storage

Designed to simplify storytelling, FLOW manages media assets and workflows across on-premise and cloud-based tiered storage environments. The new FLOW panel connects thousands of DaVinci Resolve and Premiere Pro users into the wider media ecosystem. Editors, colorists, VFX artists and sound mixers can move beyond their locally connected storage and search, browse, and access proxy and high resolutions versions of video and audio assets across multiple storage pools and archives. FLOW’s fast production tools can be used to quickly organize assets into folders and cuts-only sequences. With one click, users can import assets into DaVinci Resolve Studio and Premiere Pro, including clips, sub clips, and sequence markers. FLOW delivers the rich metadata and content directly into the DaVinci Resolve Studio and Premiere Pro bin and onto the timeline. Users can also upload assets from DaVinci Resolve Studio and Premiere back into FLOW with one click, facilitating review and approval workflows.

Support for Remote Proxy Editing

Ideal for working in any remote scenario, the FLOW panel for DaVinci Resolve Studio and Premiere Pro lets users edit with proxies - whether downloaded, streamed over a VPN, or played from central shared storage. This nimble proxy workflow benefits from the lightweight characteristics of highly efficient codecs like H.264/MP4. FLOW generates the proxies and tracks the relationship between high and low-resolution files. A menu toggle in DaVinci Resolve Studio and Premiere Pro lets users switch seamlessly between original and proxy versions, allowing them to check the original shots any time during editing. With both sets of files always available and accessible to DaVinci Resolve Studio and Premiere, color grading, effect creation and conforming are greatly streamlined.

FLOW Panel

For DaVinci Resolve Studio and Premiere Pro users, it’s business as usual, working inside a familiar environment with nothing except new and good stuff. Creatives will find immediate and dynamic connection to their media on a shared and collaborative storage system. Crucially, users can stay in their comfortable and productive zone within their respective user interface. The moment they want to find media - or export it into the FLOW system - they can use the panel to manage that task.

There are many tasks, like rendering, that you can offload from your local creative workstation to the FLOW ecosystem. It’s like having all the power of the cloud, with the look and feel of your familiar working environment.

With FLOW Automation providing the data wrangling service, Resolve and Premiere Pro users can now choose two different codecs, such as a mezzanine format and the UHD finished version to connect to concurrently. Work on a low powered laptop, cut using the mezzanine format, simply hit toggle to replace with UHD content, all on premise or in the cloud. It eases the burden on the creative applications and improves the workflow.
