HIERO and HIEROPLAYER - now sharing even more powerful workflows with NUKE

With the latest releases of HIERO and HIEROPLAYER, both products become even more tightly integrated with the NUKE family, bringing new power to HIERO and making it easier to work collaboratively across applications. As part of extensive work to synchronize the product roadmaps and releases, HIERO and HIEROPLAYER fall in line with NUKE and become HIERO and HIEROPLAYER 9.0v7.

In addition to ensuring workflow and project file compatibility between HIERO, HIEROPLAYER and the NUKE STUDIO, this release sees HIERO updated to share many of NUKE STUDIO’s advanced editorial and conform features.

New in HIERO 9.0v7

In-timeline soft effects

Add powerful GPU-accelerated effects right on the timeline, in real time. Whether you’re working alone or in client-attended review session, in-timeline soft effects let you quickly and easily get shots set up, experiment with ideas and interactively refine your work. Appearing as a layer above shots on the timeline, soft effects can be applied, stacked, cloned and copied on a per-shot basis, across an entire track or to each separate video track layer.


Burn-in soft effect

Create burn-in effects directly in the HIERO timeline with a new Burn-in soft effect that lets you easily add information such as timecodes, clip name and project name, and view and change the displayed data in real time. Choose from a number of presets; burn-ins can be applied per track item, or over the entire sequence.


Annotations

Clearly and easily provide feedback on shots, add artistic direction and communicate your ideas visually to others with annotations. Useful during review sessions or when working as part of a team, annotations let you draw or write directly in the HIERO viewer on a shot-by-shot basis and then share those comments within a NUKE script with the artist working on the shot.


Multiple overlay tracks

Quickly and easily create editorial effects requiring overlays—such as insets, product logos and multi-window setups—in HIERO’s sequence timeline, with new support for adding multiple overlay tracks. Tracks are blended with the underlying content using an ‘over’ operation in real time.


Stereo playback and monitor support

View and playback stereo images natively in HIERO. We’ve added support for multi-view Stereo EXRs letting you playback and review stereo images in real time, and use a stereo monitor for viewing through SDI-out.


AAF import

Refine and finish edits from other editorial solutions such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer and DaVinci Resolve, with AAF import.


Enhanced XML support

Reduce unnecessary rework, with enhanced XML support that lets you import animated nonlinear retiming, transforms and crops from external editorial solutions such as Adobe Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro 7 and automatically recreate them in HIERO.


Broad format support

HIERO 9.0v7 adds support for additional file formats including MXF for DNxHD, Sony RAW (F55 and F65), and Apple ProRes Quicktime files.


Enhanced audio editing

Easily adjust audio tracks directly in the HIERO timeline with the ability to apply cross-fades, fades-in and fades-out, and edit them using handles. In addition, you can view an audio track’s waveform in the timeline, with separate waveforms displayed for stereo audio files.


New in HIEROPLAYER 9.0v7

Audio waveform display

View an audio track’s waveform in the timeline, with separate waveforms displayed for stereo audio files.
