Posted on January 19, 2022
Today we’ve updated both the Visual Language for Media Creation and the Ontology for Media Creation with new files, which are available on MovieLabs.com. These minor releases add some additional functionality and are part of a regular program to expand their coverage and to keep them up to date. Below is a summary of the changes we have made.

Visual Language for Media Creation (v1.1)

We’ve added a new shape for generic “things” that are sometimes required in documents but fall outside of the formal shapes like Tasks, Participants, Assets, and Infrastructure.

We’ve also added 36 new original icons including 5 Context Icons (Costume, Set, Concept, Reference Material, and Storyboard), 25 Infrastructure Icons, and 6 Security Icons (General Security, Authentication, Authorization, Dynamic Security Policy, Policy Enforcement Point, Protected Asset, Unprotected Asset).

The latest version of the Visual Language asset package can be downloaded from our Specifications and Resources page.
