Mogware set of tools

I found an ad in ANIMATION MAGAZINE about an asset management system called FileHamster, a free version tracking application for content creators which "enables you to monitor specific files on your hard drive and automatically create incremental backups whenever those files are modified".

However, since the software is only for Windows I haven´t had the chance to test it and see how useful the core app is without any of the several optional plugins that you can purchase separately: Team, Replication, Script, FTP, Report Window, Notes, Diff & Zip.

The company behind it, Mogware, claims to have "spent years developing a comprehensive suite of products designed specifically for complex data management and workflow automation. Any data pipeline will be sure to find Mogware's comprehensive suite of products complimentary to their existing adhoc tools improving their team's workflow."

They have other products that seem slightly more oriented towards console videogame development:

- Mog Pipeline's: Workflow Process centric asset management system, "a mixture of traditional asset management, worflow automation with a light twist of version control. Projects using the Mog Pipeline can reduce many tedious processes to a single click; greatly reducing the technical requirements asked of the artists."

- Mog Library: "A simple yet elegant version control solution without an overly complicated programmer-centric interface. Built specifically for the version control of binary data (...) offers immediate feedback to artists showing them who is working on each asset and why. Using a simple checkin/checkout paradigm artists can quickly interact with their binary files and avoid the delays associated with a full sync"

- MogBox: "Advanced data conversion tool. The MogBox is a powerful processing chain with a visual flowchart-style interface for building complex data conversion scripts enabling you to more easily manage and automate your 3D data conversions"

As always, your comments and news are welcome and needed!

Nimble collective: a virtual streaming collaborative animation platform

Nimble is a virtual collaborative animation platform on the cloud, via app streaming. That means no software installation, no file transfers, no hardware or operative system issues...

Being software agnostic, you can use your favorite animation tools and then invite collaborators to join you on your 2D or 3D project creating and animating on a web browser: model, rig, texture, light, animate, render, composite, edit...
 You will do your own budget and schedule-planning, get your own virtual studio running in minutes, and populate it with artists from around the world. You can even set up revenue sharing.

They are in beta testing right now, with a first “Pilot Program” limited to a small group of invited guests and just premiered the first animated content to utilize the platform 'Animal Fact #164', at Siggraph 2016.
