Production Technology Survey, 2015 Back to Reports & survey Listing

Avid remains the strongest brand in the compositing market with the DS system being used by 20% of users - even though it has been discontinued by the manufacturer. Smoke and Flame are used by 8% and 7% of respondents respectively. Many also told us that they composited with Adobe After Effects. However, 75% said they didn’t composit.

The majority of respondents say they grade using plug-ins or tools within their editing systems, reflecting the move by manufacturers to add more grading tools to their editing systems.

DaVinci Resolve emerges as the most used standalone grading system with 34% saying they employed it, while FilmLight Baselight followed with 14%.

Remote editing
The ability to edit remotely is becoming ever more possible, yet very few programme makers have either done it or even plan to. Some 55% said they had no plans to edit remotely.

However, 31% said they had not opted for remote editing, yet planned to in the next 12 months.

Of the technologies available, the most popular to date is Avid Media Composer | Cloud, cited by 6% of respondents, followed by Avid Media Central | UX and Adobe Anywhere.
