Hello Everyone. 

I have never had a need for a 'dailies' type system, but with the quantity of work I have been doing, I am starting to think it might be worth investigating.  I was wondering what people on this list have used for dailies type playback lists. 

I know a little python, and would ideally like a system I could easily connect with.  There would be 2 things I hope this software could do.  The first and easier of the two would be to take a list of folders with image sequences or .mov or .mp4 files in them, and create a playlist on the fly to play those files.

The second thing I would love would be a way to automatically update shots into a timeline that shows the shots in the edit.  Ideally replacing slugs in a timeline with the correct shot so shots can be watched in context of the edit.

Is the obvious answer Hiero?  I have not looked closely into it, but I hear that is a good option.  Are there any other, preferrably cheaper options? Ideally would like a less expensive option.

Thanks

With scratch you can drop files and xml files in a folder and it will load the files in the way specified as the xml you dont have to re-write its live xmls.
With RV you can write out its data files to build your playlists.
Really depends on how you want to interact with it though a UI, live etc.

What platform(s) are you on?

Hiero is a nice product, but the price is depressing.

There is Generation via Blackmagic. Underrated, worth a look - especially if you're into the hot rodding thing.

An interesting budget/freeware option, since you asked, is Scratch Play from Assimilate. Very flame-desktop like interface (great for dailies) and there are some interesting things you can do with automation if you look into the xml files that form the "constructs," but I suppose this borders on hacking it. But hey, how is hacking all that different from any customization, really? The price is certainly nice.

Shotgun/RV is a luxury if you're into tying in the asset tracking thing. Highly customizable and it scales nicely as things grow - always something to consider.
