Project Details

A desktop application used to perform a set of batch operations on frames, movie sequences and files.

It also allows the user to extract thumbnails and previews, and send frames to render farms.

Challenge

Pixomondo receives video frames from their clients in different formats with different naming conventions and file structures. Each asset requires specific preprocessing which until now was done semi-automatically with console tools. Their challenge was to create a configurable desktop application with a UI for automating the preprocessing step, allowing Pixomondo to implement further image processing.

It was a pleasure working with the team at STX Next. Collaboration and communication worked like a charm and made our first foray into hiring outside help a big success. The developed tool included technology we were able to extract as a library and made the effort even more worthwhile. Looking forward to our next endeavour.

Solution

To achieve this goal, STX Next used sophisticated logic combined with regular expressions. It led the team to create a variety of unique processors dedicated to transforming the required files. All of the logic is easily configurable through a dedicated desktop application. This allowed us to retain the flexibility of console tools, but also greatly speed up batch operations and minimize the manual work behind repeatable tasks.
