Rounds of Review

Supporting the natural decision-making process in creative production, Creative Force lets you do multiple rounds of review within the same production step. Include the right stakeholders at the right time, automatically send review reminders, and keep production moving without bottlenecks.

“With Kelvin, I'm processing out on set as we go and people in the studio as well as clients have access to all those files in real-time. QC can give feedback and say, hey, we need to make some capture adjustments, and we’re able to do those before moving on.”

Kelvin in device

Capture One Integration for On-Set Teams

Integrated with Capture One and compatible with any capture software you use, Creative Force comes with a specialized, easy-to-use tool – the Kelvin app – for on-set image selection, instructions, and transfer. Digital style guides tell your on-set team exactly what's needed and predefined workflows dictate whether final selection can be made by the photographer, or if multiple options should be transferred for review.

Photoshop Integration for Post-Production

Whether done internally or externally, Creative Force offers a specialized tool – the Hue app – for retouchers, directly embedded as a panel in Photoshop. Formatting requirements, style guide references, and detailed instructions will automatically appear alongside the right images as your post-production team is working on them. And when they're done, your images are automatically moved to the next step in your workflow.

Customer Testimonial

Making Thoughtful Selects

The Line Studios in NYC work with many different eCommerce clients – all with different creative needs. Before implementing Creative Force, The Line Studios found their capture and selection processes to be too prescriptive to encourage the kind of creativity that really makes their clients shine.

Creative Force eliminates all the noise, so you can focus on making thoughtful selects.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Creative Force, and how does it work?

Creative Force is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that helps brands and retailers accelerate their eCommerce creative content production. It simplifies the process of planning and producing eCommerce content, improves cross-team collaboration, and ensures more transparency across every stage of production. With Creative Force, companies always deliver the highest-quality content on time and on budget.

Built on “flow production” principles, our platform utilizes intelligent automation to streamline workflows, resulting in consistent and repeatable processes. Creative Force also integrates seamlessly with existing systems, like Capture One and Adobe Creative Cloud, and features an intuitive interface.

How does flow production work?

In traditional batch production, all assets go through a single production stage before moving to the next step. This approach can lead to bottlenecks and delays. 

Creative Force simplifies content production through a continuous process called "flow production." This process involves moving individual assets through various production stages as soon as they are ready, resulting in an efficient and scalable content production workflow.

Who can use Creative Force?

Creative Force is for brands, retailers, and commercial studios with in-house or external teams that produce and manage eCommerce content, such as photography, video, and copywriting.

Creative Force provides intelligent workflow automation, enhanced production visibility, and a range of collaboration tools that benefit all teams, including studio intake, styling, capture, post-production, marketing, and more. By choosing Creative Force, you can scale your content production, gain better operational visibility, and speed up time-to-market.
