FAQ

What are the different versions?
das element - standard

The standard version is the software that helps you organize your digital media assets. You can configure your pipeline and render templates, create libraries and ingest files into your folder structure. The AI feature helps you with the tagging of elements.


das element - lite

The lite version is used by an artist to browse the library. Multiple libraries can be loaded. No creation of libraries, no ingest and no AI.
Getting only this lite version won't be very useful. You will at least need one standard version in order to setup a library


das element - cli

The CLI version is the command line software (no GUI) that returns a prediction of labels for a given media file. This can be used in a post render process to label a rendering.

Do you provide floating licenses?
Yes, there are only floating licenses available. They have proven to be the best fit to use in a production environment.
There are no node-locked licenses. That means you always have to setup a license server.
Is there an offline version?
Yes, das element is a complete offline application that can be used on-premises. No internet connection is required.
What is powering the auto tagging feature?
Most regular AI models can recognize cats and dogs. That is not very helpful for Visual Effects.

das element uses a handcrafed machine learning model that is specially trained on VFX elements.
For example, it recognizes a main category like smoke, but also the child categories e.g.: fume, wisp, steam ...

How well does the AI work?
The auto tagging feature will assist you with the labeling process of you media file. You still need to double check all the labels that the AI predicted for you. In some cases the result might seem like a bogus assumption for a human user and we can not guarantee you a perfect labeling of all elements. The number of categories however will constantly increase and the model will get better over time.
Do I always need to get the standard version?
Yes, the standard version is the core software that manages all the libraries, the pipeline configuration like naming convention and the proxy generation templates. You will use the standard software to ingest new elements into your library.
What can I do with the lite version?
The lite version should be used by your artists to browse the element libraries. Multiple libraries can be loaded.
If you however want to create a new library you need the standard version.
Can we deploy the AI feature on our render farm?
Yes, there is a standalone command line tool (cli) especially designed to be used on a renderfarm node.
This can be used in a post render process to label a rendering. The machine learning features are all running locally on your workstation.
Can I run the license server on a virtual machine?
Yes, you can run the license server on a VM (virtual machine)
Are there any educational licenses?
Yes, please contact sales@das-element.com for further information.
What types of media are supported?
The focus is on media files like images, movie files and sequences of images.
The software supports all common image and movies file formats like: OpenEXR, DPX, PSD, QuickTime (.mov) ...
Currently 3D file formats are not supported.
