Amsterdam - Eyeon Software added Generation AM, eyeon's new asset management front end for visual effects, to the company's lineup of technologically advanced software.
Generation AM is a desktop of the Generation visual effects toolset. With tight deadlines, revision management, and team-based requirements, Generation AM excels at providing a flexible desktop for studios to manage many projects, shots, versions, and elements. Customizable, scriptable, and designed for teams, Generation AM is simple to integrate and to manage existing production environments.
Generation AM provides a project shot tracking and review system that interfaces directly with leading asset management and production workflows, such as Tactic and Shotgun, via Python scripting, which can be tailored to every studio's pipeline.
The native, cross-platform redevelopment of Generation now provides a full 64-bit application. Generation AM is a rich, optimized interface, rather than a Web browser, capable of playback and review of 2k, 4k, and stereo sequences, with 3D LUT calibration. Generation AM also provides a direct workflow for RED, including RED EPIC and OpenEXR images. Offering a product-agnostic workflow, Generation AM works with 3D, finishing, and compositing applications.
Generation AM boasts a new collaboration workflow interface which allows the artist to quickly set shot status, assign, check, and track changes. Overview entire productions, create dailies, and comprehensively categorize by artist, shot type, progress, and department, such as 3D, Animation, Lighting, and Compositing.
With today's explosive requirement for asset management tools, eyeon Generation AM's pricing and cross-platform/product availability ensures access for everyone. Generation AM ships at $995 and is expected to be released in the fall of 2011.
