Baselight STUDENT Enhanced With Creative Advances

News Image
Baselight STUDENT, FilmLight's free macOS application, has been enhanced with the innovative and creative advances from the core Baselight v5 software.

Baselight STUDENT v5 will allow those developing their skills as a colourist to have the full range of creative features, based on the same platform as every Baselight system.

Central to this is Base Grade, which brings an innovative new approach to colour manipulation, imitating the way the human eye works. Together with Base Grade, users can combine other new v5 grading tools such as Boost operators, as well as beauty tools such as Texture Equaliser, Paint and Grid Warp. Baselight STUDENT v5 also includes FLUX Manage, a powerful new media management system introduced with Baselight version 5.

Baselight STUDENT is an accessible way for colourists to learn Baselight, whether to move into grading or to make the transition from other grading solutions. It is a comprehensive, software-only version of the industry-leading Baselight system, running on supported Mac hardware with GPU rendering. It is designed as a platform for skills development rather than commercial work, so the outputs are restricted to H.264 movies and JPEG still images only. To get the full user look and feel, the software can be controlled by FilmLight’s Slate control surface. Since its launch in 2017, thousands of users have downloaded the Baselight learning tool.

Justin Tran, colourist/finishing editor, commented: "Having access to the same amazing toolset and colour science as used in Baselight hero systems is invaluable. As a freelancer, Baselight STUDENT allows me to keep up to date, develop and improve workflows.

"With the release of v5 across our product line, we've had many requests from our Baselight STUDENT registrants to move up to the next level," said Steve Chapman, Co-founder of FilmLight. "Baselight STUDENT v5 enables both professional and budding colourists to master on the latest advances in colour tools within Baselight, as used by the world’s leading creatives."

Initially available as a 90-day license for individuals who register as part of the Baselight Learning Programme, colourists can apply for a license review to extend the length of use, for example, to work on a short personal project, to start a career as a professional colourist assistant, or to create academic-year projects. For the duration of the license, the FilmLight training team are available to answer any questions from users to ensure they get the most out of the application.

Users also have access to a range of supporting material, including Baselight manuals, a media training package and training videos. One-on-one training is also offered from in-house experts in the London, Los Angeles, Munich and Sydney offices, to help ensure professional practices when students reach the job market as colour assistants and colourists.
