FMX 2017 Talk - Open Source Pipeline

splashscreen

Introduction

Plex is an Animation, VFX and Games pipeline managing important workflows during production. Its core is a flexible and independent system for small to mid-sized projects and companies. The basic idea is to handle the file and folder structure work, setups basic rules and guides the workflow to allow a collaborated working.

Intuitively guiding the input and output of users to overcome problems and achieve goals. Now you have a good game ... or pipeline.

The main idea is to have an overall system which lays the foundation for the modular scripts that are plugged into the pipeline and add to its functionality and overall awesomeness.
