Tiger Technology has announced stoneGate, a virtual file system that enables raw image sequences stored on the Autodesk Media and Entertainment Stone file system to be manipulated using standard graphics and animation workstations over a regular LAN connection.
Tiger Technology stoneGate exploits the Wiretap API to convert the hierarchical structure of stone’s clip library into a virtual file system that maps as a local drive on the client’s workstation.
Users can remotely browse through multiple machines, volumes, projects, libraries and clip folders to access the individual frames. These are exposed as standard graphic files (RAW, BMP, TIFF, DPX and Cineon) that can be read or written using standard graphics, animations, paint, editing and compositing applications.
