    Editorial Pipeline Conversion: Animal Logic's Transition to OpenTimelineIO



    We introduce Animal Logic’s editorial pipeline refactor from a rigid and overly complex in-house solution, towards a more modern, flexible approach, based on the open source technologies OpenTimelineIO and Electron.js. This upgraded design greatly increases flexibility over the previous effort, enabling cross-platform user adoption and further decoupling our tools from the editorial software of choice. The new pipeline is now rolled out onto our most recent productions and we are already starting to see the benefits of its extensibility and ease of troubleshooting.
