Coronation Street Implements New Grading Workflow

News Image
ITV's continuing drama series, Coronation Street, has implemented a new grading workflow based around FilmLight technology.

As well as a Baselight ONE grading system with Slate control surface, five of the productions edit suites are equipped with Baselight Editions, putting the creative grading toolset directly inside Avid.
Coronation Street moved to its new home in MediacityUK, in the northwest of England, at the beginning of 2014. This location includes external streets, practical sets and studio space, together with all the post-production required to deliver completed programmes on a fast turnaround. With the drama transmitted 5 times a week, the production team are creating the equivalent of a full-length feature film every week.
HD camera outputs from multiple simultaneous shoots are captured as files and immediately loaded onto an Avid ISIS shared storage system. The Baselight ONE grading suite sits on the ISIS network and performs a master grade without having to render a single frame — grading information is passed to the edit suites as metadata in the AAF files, including tracking information, windows and keyframes.
By working on the same media in its native format, metadata exchanges between the grading and editing suites are very fast and there is no loss of quality — or time — through rendering or file conversion. Baselight for Avid allows editors to make changes to the grade if necessary, and also the lead colourist can pull edited shots (and their adjusted grades) back into Baselight to make further changes in the master suite. Baselight Editions include the same core toolset as full Baselight systems, with the same graphical user interface, but implemented to run as a plugin on the editor or effects workstation.
