Hi everyone! We have released a massive upgrade of Mistika Workflows, adding several new smart features to further optimize content delivery processes and take Metadata Management to a whole new level. This version is already available on your Online SGO Account. New Features Extended render metadata support - Adding metadata export to XMP and CSV formats. To learn how to manage metadata in Mistika Workflows, take a look at this TUTORIAL. Edit Metadata Node - With this node, you are now able to modify and/or add file’s metadata. New tokens system added to Name Conventions - Dynamic tool, enabling tag autofill in name convention. You’re able to select among several different tokens, such as resolution, color space or framerate and they’ll be part of the destination path or render name. These tokens can be added by using square brackets [example]. When you create the first bracket you get a drop-down menu with the different tokens, write or select the one you want and the bracket will close automatically. To learn how to use these dynamic tokens, check this TUTORIAL. Additional tag fields available for Name Conventions Auto-filler for the FilePath items Smart Conform Filtering - To facilitate and speed up the deliveries, Mistika Workflows now allows you to perform the Conform only deploying the files that have been used in the final edit, being able to filter from XML, EDL or AAF files. To learn more about how this feature works, have a look at this TUTORIAL. Crop Node - Crop the image or the RGBA channels separately, or add a soft cut. Rescaling Functionality - Mistika Workflows is now able to automatically apply framing feature to your media, including resolution change, transform, rescale and crop. 3D LUT Node - Apply any look-up-table to your media automatically. The 3D LUT’s can either be generated in Mistika Boutique or in (any) other relevant program. To learn more about how to apply 3D LUT automatically, check out this TUTORIAL. Stitch Refiner - This new functionality enables you to refine your optical flow stitching of the .rnd files, automatically applying match color and geometry. STMaps Node - Applies STMaps to its corresponding cameras. Classify by Extension Node - This new node enables you to automatically filter and manage your files by extensions. The extensions can be added/removed by your preferences. Render farm integration adding Deadline support - Rendering tasks can now be handled directly by the Deadline render farm. To see how to set up the Deadline in Mistika Workflows, check this TUTORIAL.

Hi everyone! We have released a new version of Mistika VR, introducing live output to VR headset* and color space conversion functionality. You can now download this latest version from your Online SGO Account. *The VR Headset Preview functionality is supported through the integration of DeoVR, a platform-agnostic and completely free of charge VR player. Also, all active subscribers and the ones who signed up during the open beta period got the Headset feature included in their subscriptions free of charge as a part of the SGO Loyalty Program (even in the personal editions). New features VR Headset Preview: Mistika VR users are now able to preview stitched VR media without the need of rendering in the headsets using the output to DEO VR player. Color Space Conversion: Color Science has been added to Mistika VR, enabling the setting of the input/output gamma and gamut with all the industry-standard color spaces, including ACES. Input and output gamma/gamut may differ, making possible delivery in a color space different from the source media. STMap Integration: Facilitating the workflow between Mistika VR and compositing softwares such as Nuke, the newly added STMaps provide all the stitch information, not only geometry, but also optical data. RAW debayer parameters exposed: Media in RAW format now allows RAW data adjustments (debayer, sharpening, ISO etc, depending on camera model). Fixes A short segment can now be properly stabilized without turning the image black. The “source name” render option now works correctly with the ZCam input media. Sync by TC of one shot breaking other shots present, is now fixed. Changing stereo mode in Mistika Boutique no longer affect the stereo mode in Mistika VR. Improvements Some new presets added. All existing stitches and presets will now automatically update their list of parameters (adding gamma/gamut, K1,K2,K3 lens distortion per camera, some others) An error message is displayed if the metadata stabilization is not imported correctly. Known issues Teche media performance in Windows is slower than in previous versions. When logging in the SGO Activation Tool, please wait a couple of seconds before opening the Advanced Mode. Mistika VR interface does not display correctly on the latest Monterrey macOS version when Firewall is activated. How to enable VR Headset preview in Mistika VR? 1. Right next to the VR view icon you will notice a brand-new HS button. When you click on it, a pop up window will appear, instructing you to copy your computer IP website address and paste it in the DeoVR player. 2. Open the DeoVR player on your preferred platform and paste the IP address. If you do not have the DeoVR player installed yet, click here and install the application. IMPORTANT: Please make sure to use the same network connection for both - the workstation where you run the Mistika VR on and the VR Headset where you want to see the preview. 3. Make sure that you click the play button in Mistika to get the video output in DeoVR.
Hi everyone, A new release of Mistika Workflows is now available. This latest upgrade introduces many new and improved functionalities, additional task and input nodes and several other exciting enhancements throughout the software. What is New in Mistika Workflows 10.2.1? Here is the complete list of new features, and improvements made to this new version: Complex media delivery packages (“Megapacks”) New support for Panasonic 8KP2 media packs, including import/export from/to P2 and 8KP2 cards, XML metadata modification, P2 serial number assignment, and copying to multiple (x5) 8KP2 cards according to the 8KP2 standard. Also with capabilities for joining media packs and the option for generating tapeName from Panasonic user bit data. Creation of ADI v1.1 and ADI v3.1 (SkyADI) media delivery packages (client customizable nodes) Support for Sony XDROOT as an input node. New codec support Panasonic AVC intra: Import / Export MXF XAVC: Import / Export BRAW: Blackmagic RAW files Import .ts and .m2t import Flow control New Auto Trigger node: A periodic timer to trigger the execution of pending workflows via definable time interval. New Serialize inputs node: To send multiple input nodes to a single task node, avoiding the need of duplicating the whole pipeline. “Add Root” property added to the Watcher node (active by default). When active, it permits to keep the original folder tree structure of the incoming files, passing the full paths to the next nodes. Not otherwise. “Delete after processing” property added to the Watcher node, for automatic deletion of input files once the workflow has been completed. Render Logs are now created on separate files, including the date/time of creation in their names. Name Convention Highly improved Name Convention, with support for additional syntax fields extracted from media metadata (Tape Name, Color Space, …) Now a different Name Convention can be applied to each workflow. Encoding nodes now include the addTimeStamp option within the properties panel. Name Convention can be also defined on Input nodes. File transfer nodes FTP: New properties “Delete After Transfer” (and “Are You Sure”), “Include / Exclude”, “New Files Only”. Also a RenameFileList for automatic renaming options. Aspera Client: New targetRate property, allowing the user to define how much bandwidth he wants to dedicate to Aspera file transfers. There is also a new SSL Certificate login property, and a new RenameFileList property for automatic renaming. RAW extraction from camera formats Camera RAW nodes (ARRI/R3D/Canon/Sony..) now have a Debayer (From file/ Custom) property, to select between using default debayering extraction or custom settings. Transcoding nodes The interlaced property now also supports “From Input” Transcoding nodes are now able to overwrite clip’s TC. All transcoding nodes now allow changing the Tape Name in the Properties panel. “Drop Frame/Non Drop Frame/Auto” property added to transcoding nodes. Common resolution presets added to transcoding nodes. Miscellaneous New display filter “Watermark'' easy to customize at workflow execution time, either by using a .CSV file (pyCSVtoDFILT node) or by filling the Header/Body/Footer text properties (pyWatermarkCfg node). Python source code is provided to serve as an example about how to modify display filters. ConcatXLS: Merges various XLS files in one. XLS is a popular format for asset management but usually comes in multiple .xls files, and this node permits to concat all of them. Retimer added to transcoders unlocking three new ways of the frame rate modification and conversion. Important Note: Python Libraries are now compatible with macOS Mojave.
