Changing the Picture is a two day technology conference in Babelsberg, Germany, with focus on the newest trends and applications for content production and distribution.
Our Dailies Creator app for the Mac finally has watch folder support. It will automatically import all compatible clips and metadata files placed there. This means that you can now automate most Dailies workflows, saving time and making life on set easier.
At the same time we've added support for importing ALE (e.g. from Pomfort Silverstack) and Final Cut Pro 7 XML files (e.g. from QTAKE). Combined with watch folders, it makes it possible to have fully automatic, up-to-date, easily navigable, metadata-rich Dailies both on-set and off-.
Dailies Creator 2.7 is available via your Dailies Server account (click the menu button on the top right). For more information about using watch folders, see our knowledge base article.
PS: The option to not transcode iPad-compatible files now lives in the production settings window, just below the watch folder setting.
We’re very proud to present Dailies Viewer 2.7. The really big news is that it now runs on all iOS devices, ranging from the smallest of iPhones all the way up to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It split-screen multitasks on iPad, so you can use Viewer and e.g. read a script on-screen at the same time. You can comment on takes, draw and annotate on frames (with Apple Pencil or just your finger). There are also lots of improvements, including larger thumbnails, keyboard shortcuts and improved streaming.
“Ten years ago, people said that content was king. Today I think that metadata is king, if you don’t know what you have, then the millions of hours of content in your archives are essentially useless. ”
We are very proud to present Dailies Viewer 2.5. Based on user feedback, this update adds full streaming support. In other words, you no longer need to wait for a clip to download before watching it.
Today, we’re launcing version 2.5 of Dailies Creator. It includes a lot of new features, the biggest being ALE export to Avid: Export your metadata, with comments and other details, straight into the the editing software. This version also adds multicam support and a separate clips column in Creator.
We are working closely with Production Minds. Their Production Minds Platform is a cloud-based creative collaboration tool for pre-production of scripted film and video, designed specifically for film and TV professionals. We've had the pleasure of sitting down with Gabor Kertai, PM's CTO and resident reneissance man, to hear more about their software and vision.
We wish everyone a productive and entertaining trip to NAB. This year we're staying in Europe, but look forward to seeing you at IBC in a few months, and in Las Vegas in 2016.

We are proud to have delivered both Set Report, Dailies Creator and Dailies Viewer to the tremendously successful The Heavy Water War. The series now experiences the highest viewer ratings in Norwegian TV history ever.
The series is a six-part dramatization of one of the most thrilling stories of the Second World War: the Nazis' efforts to develop an atom bomb and the Allies' desperate struggle to prevent it from happening.
We introduced our new dailies and metadata workflow for Nordic, Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian Cinematographers at the FSC Expression Conference on December 6, 2014.
The occasion marked the first major international event held by the FSC, with the goal of assessing how the change from film to digital has affected the art of Cinematography.
Today we're replacing Cam Report and Dailies Viewer on the App Store with their new and improved descendants: Set Report and Dailies Viewer 2.
The biggest changes in both apps are related to how they connect to Dailies Creator: Pairing is gone, and you now use good, old logins for connecting, which means that you no longer need to be on-set to add Viewer or Set Report to a production.
On “The Heavy Water War” I have used Dailies Viewer every day, every night, every morning. It’s been one of my most important companions trough these 68 days shot mid-winter in the Norwegian mountains and in the Czech Republic.
We're proud to announce that Cam Report 3 is out, a brand new version re-designed from the bottom up. Among other things it has built-in reporting (via email and AirPrint), selectable fields (only display those you need), and generally a more stream-lined user interface. Support for uploading to Cam Report Web has been removed.
