Baselight Editions extends the capabilities of a high-end colour grading system directly onto the Avid timeline in a powerful, flexible, and tightly integrated workflow. This AVX plugin features unlimited layers of colors, grading inside and outside mattes, variable feathering, point tracking and area tracking — all live and fluidly interactive on the Avid timeline, minimising and even eliminating the need to go back into the colour suite with last-minute changes.
Everything you do within Baselight for Avid – or a full Baselight system – is saved within the project and can be embedded in an AAF file and/or saved to the FilmLight BLG file format. The grade can be exported from a full Baselight suite and imported into Avid so you can apply a full, complex grade in a matter of seconds – without rendering. It includes all grading layers, tracking information and even keyframes so no manual adjustment is needed.
And the workflow is fully bidirectional – if the grade is changed in Avid it can be exchanged with a Baselight system or even another Avid suite just as easily, with all edits intact and without needing to conform.
Baselight for Avid allows you to view – or to render – grades passed between departments via BLG data encoded in AAF files – without purchase. It’s perfect for collaboration with colleagues or facilities that don’t have Baselight, or that don’t need complete creative control of the look.
The full licence for Baselight for Avid allows you to modify the grade if you need to – with the power of the Baselight core toolset and without leaving Avid.
