IBC: FilmLight adds Baselight plug-in for Nuke and 3d tools

Filmlight has revealed on overhaul of Baselight’s stereo 3d toolset at IBC. The “completely rewritten” 3d tools “take a lot of the pain out of posting stereo 3d,”says head of marketing Mark Burton. “We’ve added one-click auto-geometry correction and put the left and right eye into the same timeline so they can be graded together.”  There’s also a new stereo grade for depth grading of the 3d image.

The company also announced speed improvements to the full range of Baselights, brought about through a free software upgrade, which, in terms of performance improvements is “akin to moving on a generation in hardware,” says Burton.

Additionally, FilmLight showcased a plug-in software version of Baselight running within The Foundry’s vfx compositing staple Nuke. The company already has a Baselight plug-in for Final Cut Pro (which was introduced at NAB and starts shipping in late November at a cost of US$995 - pictured). The Nuke plug-in will be ready for NAB next year.

Both the FCP and Nuke Baselights work in a similar way, providing editors and vfx artists with everything the Baselight colourist has access to, enabling colour adjustments to be made at different stages of the production process. FilmLight says an Avid plug-in and possibly one for Adobe Premiere is likely to follow.

Finally, Burton says the Blackboard 2 control surface FilmLight revealed at NAB is now shipping, although he added that the first production run of it – around 20 panels -  have already sold out.
