GridIron Software has introduced a new digital content management software called Flow. The software is being show publicly for the first time at Macworld Expo, and is coming this summer.
Flow helps digital content pros working on graphic design, Web and video products to track the design process and manage assets and applications required for those workflows.
Flow records all import/export, save/save as and copy/paste actions in a project. It also understands all the file formats used in creative apps, including those made by Adobe and Apple, and understands and maintains relationships between stills, movies, sound clips, fonts, plug-ins and color swatches — not only on local devices on the computer, but on the network and on removable media, too.
Flow is capable of creating “snapshots” of any project at any given time, recording the state of media files, fonts, color swatches, apps and plug-ins. Archives can include a “Workflow Map” giving you a visual idea of how everything fits together, as well. Flow also includes a workflow calendar and a Software Development Kit (SDK) that lets vendors make their own custom extensions to add new functionality to Flow.
Flow will be available for Tiger and Leopard when it’s released, and later for Windows.
