HOLLYWOOD — Colorfront (www.colorfront.com) is at Cine Gear Expo 2013 with Express Dailies 2013, its high-performance on-set dailies system for commercials, motion picture and high-end episodic HD television production. The release is now shipping and delivers a new set of productivity features that meet the demand for streamlined end-to-end dailies workflow. Cine Gear Expo is taking place at Paramount Studios this weekend.
Express Dailies 2013 is built on the image-science technology, color grading and management tools featured in Colorfront’s On-Set Dailies system. It serves as a compact, easy-to-use, high-performance on-set, look-creation and data wrangling tool. Express Dailies 2013 features tools for playback and sync, QC, color grading, audio and metadata management.
On-Set Live! provides an end-to-end production workflow with live grading that is fully compatible with dailies, and streamlines color pipelines. It can work with live SDI feeds from multiple cameras, and enables the DIT or on-set color grader to create and manage looks, preview footage and grade on a live RAW camera signal.
The new Copy Central capability accelerates dailies and deliverables production by offering simultaneous checksum-verified copying to multiple destinations, including LTO archiving, and produces PDF manifest reports. Users can also easily manage media and metadata with a new Bin tool, which includes creation of bins and timelines, advanced sort and search based on all metadata, and file export for easy project management.
Express Dailies offers extensive camera format support of releases from Sony, Arri, Canon, Red, Phantom, and Go Pro, as well as DSLRs. Control options include support for Tangent’s popular Element grading panels. The new 64-bit software runs on Mac Pro tower and retina MacBook Pro workstations. Support for AJA Kona3 and Io XT cards deliver realtime HD video playback and high-quality RAW image de-Bayering, including ArriRaw and F55Raw.
