Autodesk Lustre 2007 digital colour grading solution launched

The launch of the Autodesk Lustre 2007 digital colour grading solution has been announced.
Lustre has shaped hundreds of films, including 'King Kong', 'Clerks II' and the upcoming films 'Macbeth' and 'The Black Dahlia'. There is also growing demand for specialised digital grading tools like Lustre in the TV industry and for films shot in high definition (HD).
Lustre 2007 is based on a non-linear, data-centric software architecture. Its GPU-accelerated grading provides real-time playback of primary colour grading and key secondary grading capabilities. Melbourne-based Digital Pictures was beta testing Lustre 2007, and used its Lustre 2.7 system on Macbeth.
Macbeth Director Geoffrey Wright commented: "Working with Digital Pictures and colourist Justin Heitman gave me progressive confidence that the creative process would be an exciting one. The grading process is now, like editing, another chance to rewrite some elements of the movie, to inject a mood or feeling that may not have been considered before."
Pamela Hammond, Head of Post at Digital Pictures, said: “Macbeth was the first HD project to be digitally graded in our state-of-the-art digital grading theatre. Autodesk Lustre gives us the freedom to use numerous creative tools for primary colour correction and secondary colour correction, window isolation and keying."
Autodesk anticipates that Lustre 2007 will be available in September 2006 for the Microsoft Windows operating system.
