SANTA CLARA, CA — Assimilate (www.assimilateinc.com) has introduced Scratch VR Suite, a realtime VR toolset for dailies work, conforming, color grading, compositing, finishing, and mastering in any format, at any resolution. The virtual reality toolset enables the highest level of quality and productivity, and is affordable for everyone. Assimilate will showcase Scratch VR Suite at its booth in the VR Pavilion at NAB 2016.
The Scratch VR Suite includes the latest features of Scratch V.8.4, and content creators will automatically be upgraded to Scratch 8.5 when it’s announced. Scratch VR also includes Scratch Web, and creative tools that are specific to the VR suite. Scratch Web enables realtime, online collaboration and review via Google Cardboard and Samsung GearVR headsets.
“It’s clear that high-quality VR content is really taking off in real-world applications – science, technical and vocational training, education, and of course entertainment – and Assimilate is at the forefront of this next revolution in visual content,” says Lucas Wilson, VR producer at Assimilate. “While the excitement is in the content, it’s the behind-the-scenes software and hardware that give filmmakers and content creators the needed tools to make quality VR happen. Working in a new technology like VR can be complex, and the Scratch VR Suite simplifies the workflow so that creators can stay focused on the content while maintaining high levels of productivity and quality.”
For a limited time, the Scratch VR suite is being offered for $995 (a $1,995 value).
