HIERO Open Beta Launches Today - The Foundry

Collaborative working on VFX projects, especially with a quick turnaround, can be painful. HIERO has been built from the ground up to address these challenges and create a smooth workflow to improve efficiency and increase shot throughput volume.

Conform and parcel out your VFX shots to multiple NUKE artists, automatically creating a file structure that knows where everything is. Review shot progress in the context of the edit with the confidence that you always have the latest versions at your fingertips.

Flexible and scriptable, HIERO is easy to integrate and significantly reduces the infrastructure work required to keep a VFX team up and running.

Free up your expensive finishing systems to concentrate on their real strength – finishing.

HIERO is designed to sit in the VFX pipeline, doing the initial conform, putting plates online and then sitting at the heart of the daily review process.

Tony Lawrence, Head of 2D, Smoke and Mirrors, comments: “We love that The Foundry are developing a product as sophisticated as HIERO. The flexibility, ease of use and integration into our pipeline will increase our output, allowing even more jobs to pass through our facility. The Foundry has yet again come up with a solution that will benefit the post production community.”

Andres Kirejew, VFX Supervisor/Partner, Township, adds: “HIERO has removed all the tedious, manual labour from conforming. I pointed it towards my EDL and 1.5tb of RED Epic footage magically relinked! HIERO breaks out shots with ease and automatically names, symlinks and prepares them for NUKE roundtripping. HIERO is ****ing brilliant. Seriously, at the price point, it’s a no-brainer!”

Senior Product Designer, Matt Plec said, “NUKE is already a powerful compositing tool, but it’s missing a component many artists need. HIERO provides this missing link functionality currently dealt with either by expensive tools, in-house scripting or a cumbersome manual process. HIERO’s the bridge tool our customers have been asking us for.

Keep up to date with pre-release information about HIERO and more in the weekly edition of The Compositor www.thefoundry.co.uk/thecompositor
