Stage Directions

Green Hippo’s FlexRes Tools is a free suite of plugins and utilities to streamline content creation workflows. Flexibility is key for a media server. One show may need 8K+ playback while the next may require perfect 4:4:4 color and uncompressed playback. FlexRes is a suite of codecs that features the flexibility to do both extremes and everything in between. FlexRes is more than just a few codecs, it is also an integral part of the content workflow. From a single system production to a render farm, FlexRes saves precious time with a series of innovative tools to ensure the time from render to playout is as short as possible.
