FilmLight, The Pixel Farm partner on end-to-end restoration workflow

LONDON — FilmLight and The Pixel Farm have formed a strategic partnership to jointly market FilmLight’s Baselight color grading system and The Pixel Farm’s PFClean restoration software as a complete, fully integrated workflow for digital cinema restoration. 

A branded OEM version of the PFClean restoration and remastering suite equipped with the Baselight integration option will be available to FilmLight customers to purchase directly through the company’s worldwide reseller network.

FilmLight ( and The Pixel Farm ( have been working together to achieve seamless integration between the Baselight grading system and PFClean, a film restoration software. The integration allows, for example, images to be graded in Baselight while simultaneously being restored in PFClean. The integration includes support for all DI workflows, including those using the ACES format.

“Baselight [pictured, right] and PFClean [pictured, left] together form a clean and precise workflow that allows post production facilities to conduct restoration projects with unprecedented efficiency,” says The Pixel Farm managing director Michael Lancaster. “Grading and restoration can proceed in parallel with an ease and simplicity no other restoration system can match.”

“Post production operations seeking to add restoration to their service offering, or to enhance existing capabilities, can now do so via an end-to-end solution based on best-of-breed technologies,” adds FilmLight technical marketing manager David Stroud.

The Baselight-PFClean combination is already in use at a number of  post houses engaged in high-end restoration work such Sony Imageworks, Culver City, and  Reliance Media Works and Kodak Cinelabs, Romania.
