To access the Workflow post-production, navigate to the main menu in the top right corner and click on 'Workflows'. Then choose Post-production.

Right under Post Production is where all the production types you have set up for this workflow.

Types of post-production

  1. Outsourcing: Post-production completed entirely by an external vendor.

2. Outsourcing with exception handling: An outsourced post-production model, with the option to divert images to an internal post-production team for finishing touches as necessary.

3. Outsourcing (External -> External): An outsourcing post-production model, with images, initially sent out to one external vendor prior to being finalized by another external vendor.

Note: You cannot use the same external vendor twice.

4. Hybrid (External -> Internal): A hybrid post-production model, with images initially sent out to an external vendor prior to being finalised by an internal team.

5. Hybrid (Internal - External) with exception handling: A hybrid post-production model, with images initially sent to the internal team and then out to an external vendor, with the option to divert images to final internal post-production for polishing.

6. Hybrid (External -> Internal -> Internal) A hybrid post-production model, with images initially sent out to an external vendor and then brought in for two rounds of internal retouching.

7. Hybrid (Internal ➞ External ➞ Internal): A hybrid post-production model, with images, initially sent to the internal team and then out to an external vendor. After that, images are brought back to the internal team for final retouching.

8. Overflow: A Post-production model focused on an internal team, with the option to manually select products to be sent out to an external vendor.

9. Internal post: A Post-production model focused on an internal team, with the option to manually select products to be sent out to an external vendor.

10. No post: Selected images are sent directly to the final asset delivery destination.

External Post-Production

Depending on the type of post-production you have set up, except when you choose Internal Post or No Post which means that you won’t have External Post-production for this workflow, you will have the following options for External Post-production:

  • Bypass External Post QC: External Post QC can be skipped on a product level

  • Separate mapping for Vendor Provided Images: A separate folder will be created to store the vendor provided images

  • Maintain filename for the final delivery: When this option is checked, the system will maintain the output filename applied at the External Post step and it will not apply the Asset Naming structure as defined on the Style Guide upon Asset Delivery. In cases where External Post is bypassed, the system will use the Style Guide Asset naming as a fallback.

You can also have more than one post-production vendor. To change between vendors, please read more here.

Internal Post-Production

Depending on the type of post-production you have set up, except when you choose Outsourcing or No Post which means that you won’t have Internal Post-production for this workflow, you will have the following options for Internal Post-production:

  • Allow Auto QA override: The retouching team can still upload the images without matching all the specification in the preset

  • Bypass Internal Post QC: Internal Post QC can be skipped on a product level

Variant Creation

Depending on the type of post-production you have set up, you can define at which step image variants are created. Read more about setting up image variants here.

Note: If you choose to have the fan-out step at External Post-Production, you won't be able to bypass External Post-Production.
