Key The Pixel Farm PFClean Features
The Workflow Manager
The Backbone of your Restoration Project
The Pixel Farm reworked the Workflow Manager. To explain, it allows even bigger projects to be constructed and managed in a flexible. By the same token, the easy-to-use Workflow manager allows for greater feedback and control of batch processing.
Re-invented Media Restoration Toolset for Artists and Archivists
The Pixel Farm replaced the Edit Panel, the heart of PFClean, and the restoration engine, with The Workbench. The Workbench, which is even more powerful in use, makes users more productive. Apply in-depth, per-clip, manual, and automatic restoration effects in The Workbench.

In our products the vast majority of the effects processing etc is carried out on the GPU. The CPU (central processing unit) administers the background operations within the application, therefore when choosing a processor we would recommend a lower core count and faster cores.
In PFTrack It is important to provide enough RAM to perform processing tasks as well as caching a clip you are working on. In addition RAM will also dictate how much footage you can playback, the longer the clip and or higher the resolution the more RAM that will be required to cache the entire clip. The two amounts will need to be added together to give you the total amount of RAM required.
Both PFClean and PFTrack can utilize more than one GPU to obtain some fairly significant performance benefits. In the case of PFClean multiple GPU’s will yield faster effects processing and PFTrack can use a second GPU for background processing.
It is recommended to store your project files etc on a fast drive such as an SSD as these are optimised for input / output operations. Especially useful when reading and writing metadata and loading media into your projects as it makes the application more responsive and increases your productivity.
