Post Production has become complicated. What used to be an easy process of cutting film negatives by hand has spun out of control. There are a million manufacturers, OS’es, codecs, applications, and ways of doing things. While technology has made just about anything you want to do possible, it has also placed us all in a paralysis of choice… forever wondering whether we bought the right thing, whether we got a good deal, or whether there’s some cool way of doing things that we don’t know about.
Lumaforge Systems is fixing that. Our goal is to go sort through all of these different elements that make up content creation, and create products that integrate together in a way that, no matter what you want to do, you can make the content that you wanted to make in a clean, as pain-free-as-possible way. We test everything in our lab so that our customers don’t have to, and we only build products that we would want to use ourselves.
We envision a world where no matter what OS, application, or gear you use, there’s a platform and infrastructure built around it for you to work the way that you imagined. At Lumaforge, we are building that platform, and our first product is the SHARESTATION.
We have looked at group workflow, for so long hidden behind an iron curtain of terminal code, loud server rooms, and tech speak inaccessible to human beings, and we have built the SHARESTATION for real, actual people to plug it in and work with it easily and efficiently together, whether they’re working in FCPX, Resolve, the Creative Cloud, Nuke, Pro Tools, or just about anywhere except Avid (and we’re working on that). It runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux, is quiet enough to live in the room with you (or will make your server room a place you can hold meetings in), and delivers uncompromised, blazing fast performance for Creative Professionals, whether they’re video editors, colorists, sound designers, VFX Artists, or blazing a trail in the world of VR.
The SHARESTATION is designed by Creative Professionals for Creative Professionals, and we look forward to helping you all get back to doing your jobs and making cool content.
