- 5thkind (old name Otc-productions)
- Helga – Open Source

- Compbase appears to be a database to track shots and assets. There is no real information on the site, only a PNG showing some of the forms.
- Shotgun is a system installed at a few big studios.
- Flowsmith is installed in at least one facility in San Francisco I know of. Sadly, their site has no information on it.
Digital Content Management systems These facilitate content management within a facility. They do a good job of cataloging assets, letting you search and preview assets, versioning files, and tracking metadata.
Workflow Management Tools These tools help organize the workflow, tracking the dependencies between source materials and work products, allowing versioning, and tracking approvals.
