The Foundry Hiero Has Arrived

The Foundry’s new shot management, conform and review tool for visual effects is now available.

A brand new pipeline in a box from The Foundry tackling shot management, conform and review for visual effects. HIERO 1.0 makes it easy to conform edit decision lists, parcel out VFX shots to NUKE and review multiple versions within the context of the edit. HIERO is the timeline NUKE has been waiting for, but also enables collaborative working with other editorial, VFX and finishing tools.

HIERO was built from the ground up to improve facility efficiency and shot throughput volume. Providing missing link functionality, HIERO lets you use your finishing systems for doing just that and removes complicated error prone manual processes from your workflow.
