LONDON — FilmLight (www.filmlight.ltd.uk) has released the latest product in its Baselight Editions line — Baselight for Avid (Mac). Developed in association with Avid, the $995 product makes the company’s powerful color grading toolset available within Avid Media Composer or Symphony.
A built-in GPU renderer provides realtime performance, and color decisions made in Baselight for Avid can be exchanged with full Baselight systems, and vice versa. Other key features include: multi-layer color grading; grading adjustments applied directly to shots in the Avid timeline; Truelight color management; multiple ways to adjust color (lift-gamma-gain controls, film-style grading, full RGB and HSL curve-based grading); automatic tracking via one-point, two-point or new area-based tracker; and secondary grading via built-in soft-edged Bezier shapes, luma and chroma keys or a combination.
Users can also perform secondary grading on the inside or outside of layers, and work with a number of Built-in filters. A Windows version is currently in development and is anticipated for release in Q4, while the Mac version can be purchased through FilmLight’s online store immediately.
The company will show Baselight for Avid at the IBC show this month.
