Enabling Fan-out

You will be prompted to enable fan-out when a deliverable is assigned presets. Presets tell Creative Force what specifications the final assets require. For example, a deliverable may have one final select, but the campaign requires two different output dimensions for that one select: a 4x5 and 1x1. When fan-out is enabled, Creative Force creates the new files with respect to the specifications defined in the preset.

To enable fan out, click the three-dot menu next to the Internal Post step and select “Enable Fan-out”.

Once fan-out is enabled you will see an icon next to the step where one arrow splits to two

Enabling Collation

Enabling collation gives a user the option to send multiple images through to the post-production step. These images can then be used by retouchers to create composite images by combining elements from multiple assets. You can read more about collation in the article: How to Use Hue for Editorial Projects.

Collation can be enabled in both the internal and external post-production steps. To enable, simply click the three-dot menu next to the desired step and select “Enable Collation”. If collation is mistakenly enabled you are able to disable it via the same button.

When collation is enabled you will see a small icon next to the step where two arrows merge into one.

When both collection and fan-out are enabled you will see an icon next to the step where two arrows cross paths.
