FLIX joins The Foundry

The Foundry adds collaborative storyboarding tool FLIX to its portfolio.

FLIX is a web-based visual story development tool that allows creative collaborators including directors, editors, cinematographers, storyboard and previs artists to work together in one easy-to-access place. With FLIX, users can work together to hone and perfect ideas and concepts as they develop the visual story of a film or project.

Before The Foundry took over commercial development earlier this year, FLIX was developed as an in-house solution at Sony Pictures Imageworks (SPI).

Collaboration is achieved through a common web-based tool suite that also plays well with other leading packages such as The Foundry’s NUKE, MODO and KATANA as well as third party applications such as Maya, Photoshop and Avid software.
