Andrew Singara, CoFounder, NIM Labs, comments: “With NIM 2.8, in addition to some much-needed quality-of-life changes, we focused internally to lay the groundwork for new features to come in NIM 3.0 and beyond.

NIM is a complete studio management solution, incubated in production and designed to effectively measure and visualize production studio workflows, from production planning to project management through financial analysis. It is the only solution of its kind to track financial information alongside project progress. This enables deep business intelligence for creative studios both large and small.
NIM 2.8 key features
Studio-wide media browsing NIM 2.8 now displays all studio media items logged across all jobs, enabling faster, deeper insight into ongoing work. Media can be grouped by any column header to organize by job number, type, owner and more.
The scheduler UI has been updated to simplify visualizing many events at once. A zoom function has also been added, enabling users to widen out to get the big picture, or focus on the items of interest.
New filters have been added to allow users to sort through large numbers of users when viewing timecards in the day view. NIM now provides multiple options to view the items you need to see.
NIM 2.8’s API comes with a variety of additions and enhancements that enable deeper, more focused customization of the NIM platform. Studios can use it to further define how NIM works, tailoring it to the bespoke needs of their studio.
New Job Actuals exports
NIM 2.8 provides users with additional Excel export options for Job Actuals. Actualization and Tasks tabs can now be exported as Excel documents with separate sheets for each table. Shot actualization is now grouped by the show, along with the show totals, to provide in depth reporting and insight.
Dailies Format Options
NIM 2.8 makes Dailies more streamlined by removing the resolution restriction and the need for OGV and WEBM format conversions. The max width and height for dailies can be defined using NIM’s administrative tools. Uploaded movies in the mp4/h264 format and below the max width and height will not be re-encoded, saving time and server processing power.
Other improvements and fixes NIM 2.8 comes with a host of other updates including new events hooks, custom fields on files, job field updates for better clarity, and enhanced Chinese character support.

About NIM Labs
NIM Labs was founded in 2014 by Ntropic founder Nate Robinson and creative director Andrew Sinagra. Robinson and Sinagra first developed NIM ten years ago at Ntropic, when it was a small post-production shop. Having an internal management tool helped their creatively-driven minds manage the post-production process from start to finish. Realizing they had developed a one-of-a-kind tool, Robinson and Sinagra stripped down the internal build and rebuilt NIM from the ground up as a flexible tool for other studios to utilize. nim-labs.com
