The news is travelling fast that The Foundry have a new product in development. This product is called HIERO and is thought to be the 'missing link' in shot management system for VFX pipelines. Designed specifically to help increase output and manage multiple jobs, this tool is said to be a game changer for the post production community.
So, when can we get a sneak preview of HIERO? Well some lucky people at this year’s IBC were able to catch a demo when The Foundry unveiled it to the masses. The editorial team of IBC Daily and TVB Europe magazine were so impressed by what they saw, that they awarded HIERO the ‘Best of IBC’ award, in the Production and Infrastructure category.
At the moment there isn’t a Beta version of HIERO to play with. However, Escape Studios are working with The Foundry to offer live demos to companies who are interested in seeing what HIERO is capable of. If you like what you see during the demo we can then put your name on the list for a trial version upon its release in the new year.
Unfortunately we need to wait a little longer for the release of this exciting new technology, but as they say, good things come to those who wait. You can’t hurry greatness.
