London-based CG and vfx software developer The Foundry has introduced a new vfx review and playback tool to the market called Hieroplayer. The tool allows Nuke users the ability to playback every shot on the vfx timeline in context on their workstations. The new playback tool is priced at £200 (about $317) and includes one year’s maintenance.
A Nuke user with a Hieroplayer can export the shot or sequence that they are working on in Nuke, then play it back and review it in context with full audio on the tool’s vfx timeline. They will also have easy access to multiple versions of their shots.
Hieroplayer also compliments Hiero, The Foundry’s shot management, conform and review toolset. Nuke users get access to a full Hiero project on their vfx workstation, allowing them to view and work on shots in the context of a conformed Hiero timeline so they can quickly review versions as soon as they have been rendered.
“Hieroplayer fills a function we know users have been crying out for,” Jack Binks, Hiero product manager. “Our price point is competitive with other products and it has obvious benefits for Nuke and Hiero users. It’s the missing piece of the puzzle.”
