This digital version of a pin-up space is absolutely an improvement to my workflow. The input is so robust. What you do with it is where the magic happens. This program is best suited for team collaboration. It helps to discuss how/where the team will contribute information to it--whether that is discussing the templates or a plan of action. Otherwise, the workspace can tend to get messy. I like the idea of having a presentation mode, where some of the markups could be hidden. The idea of a working session with consultants or clients sounds appealing, but at the same time, there is a desire for a cleaned up, clear shareout.Incentivized
Even for a small business like mine, Yamdu really felt like a one-stop shop for everything. It's hard to find a comprehensive software for film/video productions, but Yamdu has everything we need. The only thing that really held us back was the cost, ultimately. If anything, I would love a storyboarding feature that let you set the time per shot and build out a sequence in pre-production. I used Storyboarder for this currently and it's very helpful, especially for music videos, to be able to build out a storyboard, set a music/audio track to it, then play it back in real time and see the pacing of the shoot.
Allows for a high volume of images and sketches to be put into the canvasLets you drop in text, freehand sketching, and shapes quick and easyCan connect images and texts together using connectors, which can be customizedIncentivized
You can use Zoom with Bluescape but it requires solid bandwidth and memory by users.A breadcrumb trail would be nice to watch students performance.I would like individual user analytics for each of my students to see where they’ve been and what contributions each has made.Incentivized
More specific financial management reports.Creation of some instant messaging software for the team.
This is one of Yamdu's strongest points.
We have Workware installed on different computers in our office that were supposed to be great for presentation but we had issues after a user connected their laptop then they no longer had access to our server. If they had files they needed for the presentation they had to save them to their desktop to make sure they were accessible.Incentivized
At the time, there really wasn't anything else like Yamdu. Especially as, in Celtx's case, at that time they weren't doing Excel/CSV exports of shot lists in the A/V format, something we required for what we were shooting. I understand that StudioBinder has increased its featureset the past few years, but Yamdu always felt like the most robust option and more familiar with the film/tv world.
Especially in a remote work environment, Bluescape helps us continue collaborating without missing a beatIncentivized
Positive impact, centralized place with some good tools for film productionsNegative impact, not that flexible and as expected and strict pricing policy with little flexibility
