Flowbox VFX Platform releases Rotoscoping v1.5 w/ After Effects export, Educational and Floating options as well as partners with Mocha.

Flowbox, the creator of a node-based VFX platform focused on Rotoscoping, has just released a big update with Advanced Display Settings, LiveQC, and most importantly a long sought after Export to After Effects. The export generates keyframes and animation compatible with the newest AE. Since the release of Rotoscoping 1.0 at the end of 2016, the Flowbox team has been working hard on customer feature requests and optimization.

Of the company’s recent update said Mikołaj Valencia (CEO), “This is the biggest update we have had to date. Our AE export gives compatibility that Animators, Compositors, Roto Artists and Film Editors need that do not use Nuke as the core of their pipeline. We’ve completely rethought the roto workflow and you can see that in our LiveQC and Advanced Display Settings. You have to check it out.” Flowbox will continue to expand functionality and work with a top notch talent around the world to ensure the roto process is fast and easy for all types of users.

Along with the 1.5 version update, Flowbox is announcing a partnership with Imagineer Systems to license their industry standard Mocha Planar Tracking SDK.

Mocha’s award-winning planar tracking has set the standard for professional VFX artists,” comments John-Paul Smith, CEO, Imagineer Systems. “Through licensing partnerships, the Mocha Planar Tracking SDK enables technology partners to develop new tools and workflows powered by the core Mocha tracking engine. The team at Flowbox has developed an exciting VFX platform and we look forward to this new partnership and what it will bring to VFX and roto artists.”

Flowbox plans to complete the integration of the license in the next months. Of the licensing partnership, Mikołaj Valencia (CEO) said, “With the addition of Mocha’s Planar Tracking SDK, Flowbox toolset will be the undisputed solution to Rotoscoping. We can’t wait to bring this to the post-production world.”

Here is  a highlight of what is coming along in this release, the full list can be found on the changelog or watch the new v1.5 videos showing the newest features:
