Built in Deadline, Made for Pipelines

Draft streamlines your workflow by automatically processing your renders for review and by connecting with your production management system to tag your videos.

You can generate your thumbnails, contact strips, and multiple resolution videos all at the same time. You can use Draft to create simple edits, add frame counters, annotations, and even composite images.

No more accidentally putting the wrong version on the slate! No more waiting for review quicktimes to be made! Draft uses a pre-defined python script to process your renders into what you need, pulling information directly from your database, and is launched on Deadline automatically when your render completes.

Draft is designed to take over the tasks that artists spend far too much time doing each day.

Make art, not QuickTimes
