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
  • Bypass Functionality added to nodes;
