FilmLight To Showcase Baselight For Avid At IBC 2017

News Image
FilmLight is to showcase the latest release of Baselight for Avid, its high-productivity plugin that brings colour control and preview to editing workstations, at IBC 2017 (Amsterdam, 15 – 19 September, stand 7.F31).

With Baselight for Avid and FilmLight's render-free, metadata-driven workflows, editors always see the latest grade, and can make their own adjustments to it without leaving the Avid environment.

The new release, while still providing sophisticated, professional colour grading within the familiar Avid environment, brings even greater efficiencies from the Baselight platform. A new visual timeline allows the user to see and move easily between shots. Combined with the new relational navigation tool, which allows users to narrow down material very quickly and move between shots with the same clip or tape name, navigation is both seamless and simple.

The Baselight workspaces tool is also available in Baselight for Avid 5.0, allowing users to customise their screen and arrange panels within the Baselight UI according to their individual needs and preferences.

Beyond navigation and layout, the addition of relational grading replicates Baselight’s powerful multi-shot grade application, by allowing grades to be copied and imposed on shots defined by the same category, such as clip name, bin name, camera and so on.

The latest version also brings the new grading tools introduced in Baselight 5.0 into the Avid workspace. This includes the revolutionary Base Grade concept from FilmLight, which gives the artist access to a set of controls that accurately mimic the way the eye appreciates colour, rather than the traditional lift/gamma/gain approach. Also featured is the texture equaliser, which can be used for skintone fixes: giving the editor the ability to clean up skin issues without handing the shot off to a colourist is another huge productivity boost. Other new functionality includes perspective tracking for grading windows, gamut tools for moving between colour spaces, and denoise.

Baselight for Avid is part of FilmLight’s unique unified approach to colour management. The raw images are retained throughout, with the grade captured in metadata in the FilmLight BLG format. Any device, from Prelight ON-SET or the Daylight dailies tool through Baselight for Avid to the full colourist suite, will interpret the BLG metadata and impose the latest version of the grade in real time.

FilmLight will be showing its full range of grading and colour management systems on stand 7.F31 at IBC, and will be highlighting the productivity gains of the BLG render-free workflow. Baselight for Avid can also be seen on the Avid booth, 7.J20.
