Toon Boom Producer
For studios with a Toon Boom pipeline, Producer is the out-of-the box solution for managing animation production for film, TV and games projects. Producer is simple to set up and use with a broad range of tools for production tracking, review and asset management. Tight integration with Storyboard Pro and Harmony plus a flexible workflow enables managers to specify, assign and track all tasks required to complete artwork. Managers can be automatically notified of task status changes and processes [such as file conversion] while a dashboard of live reports provides key production metrics including breakdowns of completed scenes, team productivity and finished frames of animation. Digital assets such as storyboards, audio and animation can be assigned to specific shots with version tracking. Artists can quickly locate assets [using re-usable filtered searches] and see what tasks are assigned to them. Animation that is ready for review can be annotated on a per frame basis with accompanying notes for quick feedback and collaboration. Producer, Storyboard Pro and Harmony fit together for a highly efficient production pipeline where you can run Harmony from Producer and access Producer’s advanced search capabilities from within Harmony].
Producer is a web-based application installed on your server running Linux.
Producer is the management hub for studios using Harmony and Storyboard Pro. Harmony animations can be viewed in Producer and you can open Harmony from Producer. Scene breakdowns from Producer transfer right into Harmony.
Modify On The Fly
One-click access to images and videos lets you review work in progress and make modifications on the fly. Markup tools let you add text or graphic annotations to video down to the frame level for instant meta-data searches.
Improved Communication & Project Delivery
Producer enables studios to track and assign tasks, and estimate time and resources required. Production staff can view upcoming tasks and activities, and production coordinators can check project status, react to bottlenecks and see which artists are producing the most frames of animation.
Easy Access To Complex Data
Digital assets are associated with specific shots or scenes so when there is a change order that requires a scene revision, you can quickly search for the assets using custom tags and metadata. Find any digital asset using a filtered search or informal keywords.
Ready to Use
Producer is easy to set up and flexible enough to adapt to any pipeline easily, providing studios the ability to manage and customize the software without additional assistance or programming. Producer comes with complete support, installation, configuration and remote training.
Local Onsite Data Access
Producer runs on a local server in your studio and your staff access it using standard browsers. This keeps your production data securely behind your firewall and maximizes response time for viewing videos.
