The Workflow Manager is the organisational hub of PFClean. Using a node graph, it controls and illustrates the flow of clips from import in the Media Manager through Media Bins to exporting the final result in the File Out nodes. This overview serves both as convenient way of visualising large projects and a means of selecting and managing media in a project.
The Workflow Manager is the initial view when creating a new project. Whenever the Workflow Manager is not visible, such as when working on individual clips, you can press the Workflow Manager button in the top-middle of the GUI to access the Workflow Manager:
There is always at least one Media Bin and one File Out node, as well as the Media Manager present in any PFClean project.
The Workflow Manager is structured to represent the flow of clips from their external location through the Media Manager to Media Bins, and from there through one or more nodes into File Out nodes, where the final result will be written to disk.
Nodes types are organised in horizontal layers to indicate their connectivity. A node's output can only be connected to the input of a node in a layer further down.
The view onto the Workflow Manager is fixed and cannot be zoomed or panned.
