Post Perspective by Randi Altman
LONDON â€” FilmLight has launched its Windows version of Baselight for Avid. This is part of the Baselight Editions range, which delivers the key elements the Baselight color grading software as a plug-in for existing post tools.
Baselight Editions puts the Baselight user interface, along with its color processing, into a standard AVX plug-in. It provides unlimited primary and secondary grades in a single layer, including mattes, automatic object tracking and full keyframe animation.
Baselight for Avid supports AAF-based round-tripping with full Baselight systems, meaning that no rendering time is needed to export grade metadata back into Media Composer. That includes carrying over sophisticated grading data including secondary color correction, shapes and tracked objects. Since the exported grades are fully modifiable, workflow efficiency is improved, as corrections and last-minute changes can be made directly in Media Composer, with no need to return to the full Baselight suite.
Color information can also be exported in the FilmLight BLG file format, for seamless exchange with any other FilmLight system including other Baselight Editions. read more...
