D2.1 Report on Extension of Digital Asset Types and Reuse Scenarios [M3]
The following document aims to define the rationale behind the need for a domain specific search, recovery and reuse system in the vfx industry and to define clear use cases for the partners to verify their solutions in work package 4 against.

reusing assets

5.1 Initial Report on Environment Adaptation [M12]
A key element that will allow for the reuse of smart assets will be tools which can transform between the many varieties of assets that fall under the wide net of creative media production. While there are many such transforms which have already been developed and successfully implemented in various production software packages, many incompatibilities exist between assets. This often results in unnecessary manual labor for the production to make new assets or convert older ones through some manual process. For transforming assets between different color representations, gamut and tone mapping methods are in development. For the purpose of personalizing assets to the display, viewing conditions, and perceptual behavior of the observer, methods for determining optimal system gamma, compensating for induction effects, and correcting for inter-observer perceptual variability are also being researched.

D7.1 Asset Store Design [M24]
This report describes the asset store design and shows how the asset store and its API’s allow integration from other
SAUCE project partners. The design addresses the requirements for a type-agnostic, versionable, distributed, replicated asset store with high redundancy and high availability.

D5.6 Demo of Transcode Mechanism [M27]
One of the key aims of SAUCE is to create multiple versions of the same asset that are appropriate to its (re)use scenario. To do this requires a transcoding mechanism. This task will develop a scheduling system to trigger the appropriate transcoding mechanism. It will also allow the different types of the same asset to be linked via their associated descriptors. The development will allow efficient generation of assets via multiple transcode applications for use globally and for re-purpose in different sectors (e.g. a low-polygon model for VR or games and a high-polygon model for film)

D5.7 Report on Environment Adaptation A [M30]
This document covers the topic of the Flix extension to be useable in new contexts, for different post-production tasks
and purposes. Covering Flix as an asset store and Flix workflow extensions enabled by interoperability with other pipeline tools.

D5.8 Report on Environment Adaptation B [M30]
This deliverable presents a color management pipeline which can be used to translate image appearance between viewing scenarios which differ with regard to various relevant parameters.

D7.2 Prototype Asset Store [M30]
Currently assets are stored local or cloud-only. FO bridges the gap between cloud and on-premise storage, depending on user requirements. Task D7.1 planned out the design to cater for the different types of assets and the load- sharing between local and cloud servers, focusing on redundancy and availability. This deliverable revisits some of those key points, describes how USD and light fields can be integrated into the store and demonstrates a simple plugin to show how an external application can be written with relative simplicity to interact with the Flix Server Storage API to retrieve assets stored in the asset store. We use this plugin to demonstrate key high availability features.
