Welcome to FLOW: FLOW Story

Part 3 of a 5 Part Series introducing EditShare’s FLOW Asset Management and Remote Video Collaboration.

Wide Format Support:
FLOW Story supports hundreds of formats, from professional broadcast codecs such as ProRes, DNxHD, AVC-Intra and XDCAM, through to 4K and beyond, such as RED R3D, XAVC, Cinema DNG and DPX. As well as working with low-resolution proxy files, you can import and export almost any format locally. You have the option to switch between hi-res or proxy media on the fly.

Real Time Collaboration:
When connected to any Editshare FLOW Database, FLOW Story has real time collaboration with other FLOW users, such as FLOW Browse and AirFLOW. Projects, Clips, Sequences, Markers and Metadata are all updated and synchronized in real time, opening up endless possibilities for creative collaboration.

NLE Integration:
FLOW Story has a strong integrated workflow with other NLEs (and DAWs) such as Avid Media Composer®, Adobe Premiere®, Da Vinci Resolve® and Avid ProTools®. This enables FLOW Story to be the perfect creative hub for anyone that needs to collaborate with editors. Through AAF and XML, FLOW Story provides interchange files that can support round-trip workflows. Create a rough cut in FLOW Story and open it in Avid. Changes made in Avid can then be viewed in FLOW Story – from anywhere in the world. This feature enables new possibilities for workflows involving Review and Approval, or simply for quickly scaling up a post-production operation.

Work Offline:
FLOW Story is built with remote editing in mind. While you only need a regular internet connection to access your content, clearly it is not always possible. FLOW Story can work in a standalone mode – for accessing FLOW projects that you have already been working on, or for working on local projects. Once your internet connection is re-established, any changes to your FLOW Project will be synchronized, and you will also see any changes made by other users, giving you true flexibility to work wherever and whenever you need to.
