The changes in Flame 2021.1 are primarily workflow improvements, with the new Explorer panel added in Flame 2021 now available more widely throughout the interface.
The dedicated library panel for Timeline FX presets and grabbed references is now available in the Timeline, Conform area, Player panel and on second monitors, as well as the Effects tab.
There are also new options when dragging and dropping a Selective from the Explorer to the viewport or a segment to update only the Matchbox shaders, or to update only the key shapes and tracking.
In addition, side-by-side comparison mode is now available in the Timeline, Conform area and Batch and Effects tabs, and gets workflow improvements in the Player panel.
Other changes include support for DNxUncompressed, Avid’s high-resolution mastering codec.
