IBC 2012: FilmLight, in association with Avid, has launched a US$1,000 (around £625) plug-in version of the complete Baselight colour grading toolset for Avid Media Composer and Symphony.
Baselight for Avid provides the means to apply the full features of the Baselight system during any stage of the post process, with grading adjustments being applied directly to shots in the Avid timeline.
The software includes a GPU renderer to provide real-time performance, and colour grading decisions made in Baselight for Avid can be exchanged between full Baselight systems and vice versa.
“Baselight for Avid will make high quality grading tools accessible in editorial suites resulting in a more flexible and efficient workflow, and a better way to communicate creative intent through the various stages of post production,” believes FilmLight founder Wolfgang Lempp.
Baselight for Avid is currently only available on the Mac and can be purchased through FilmLight’s online store
. A Windows version is under development and due to be released before the end of this year.
