xSTUDIO can be used as a simple image viewer to display virtually any image or movie type, or as an advanced, pipeline-centric review environment. This flexibility allows a wide range of users to find the functionality that suits their playback and review needs.
We believe that offering a single, flexible, generalised toolset across all our review scenarios will provide our teams and the wider industry with a powerful opportunity to work and collaborate more effectively.
The xSTUDIO interface can be configured to show or hide various UI elements, and display different layouts depending on the type of review scenario.
Users can view a single file, or a ‘Session’ of playlists, media and timelines. Powerful tools are provided to review any media, add notes and drawings, and compare versions. Using ‘Playlists’ you can organise media to suit your review situation, and Sessions can be saved and shared between users.
xSTUDIO is currently used in live production environments at DNEG.
Some of the current and future feature-set is listed below, as well as a list of those features we are encouraging collaboration on.
We are already working with a number of industry partners to further develop the xSTUDIO codebase. If you would like to discuss how you can contribute to the project we would love to talk to you. Features on our roadmap include;
