Baselight for Avid Now Updated to Version 4.4. Here’s What’s New.

By in Tutorial Thursday, Video Editing

Baselight for Avid extends the capabilities of a high-end color grading system directly onto the Avid timeline in a powerful, flexible, and tightly integrated workflow. This AVX plug-in 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.

We’ve just released a brand new version (4.4) of Baselight for Avid with a host of new features:

  • Timeline navigation is greatly improved – the F5/F6 shortcuts seamlessly transition from one shot to the next without popping the Baselight UI up and down.
  • New subdivide functions make it easy to apply a base grade to a group of shots and then cut and customize that grade for individual shots.
  • The Baselight Lens is now read and write, so you can save versions of grades back to your BLG directory— without overwriting your original grade.

We invite you to take a look at our latest video tutorial and check out all of the new functionality:

Making sure everyone has a chance to check it out, we’ve wiped all trial licenses from our database – this means that everyone can now download a fully functional 30-day trial of Baselight for Avid, even if you’ve used your trial period before.

I am the lead developer on Baselight for Avid and one of the original Baselight developers, when the product started its life as an internal grading tool at The Computer Film Company in London. Before FilmLight, I undertook research into compositing algorithms and real-time computer graphics at Canon R&D in Sydney, Australia.
