--------------------------------------Baselight for Avid
seamlessly incorporates the world’s best colour correction system directly within your Avid Media Composer and Symphony edit suites. It provides a comprehensive subset of the powerful grading tools and features available on full Baselight systems, giving you an intuitive, high quality and flexible colour correction solution.
Baselight Editions provide the same core toolset as full Baselight systems, with the same graphical user interface but as a software-only package which can be incorporated into an existing NLE or VFX workstation. This approach delivers the high quality grading tools of Baselight and Truelight colour management directly into your workstation, and as the Editions share the same data structures as the full Baselight systems, projects can be seamlessly transferred and shared between users and facilities.Key Features

• Renderless Workflows for Ultimate Efficiency & Flexibility
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. 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 tracking information and even keyframes so no manual adjustment is needed.
And the workflow is fully bidirectional—the grade can be changed in Avid and exchanged with a Baselight system or even another Avid suite just as easily, with all edits intact.Baselight Grade File (BLG) support
As well as modifed AAF files to exchange grades, Baselight for Avid supports the FilmLight BLG file format—which can be used on its own or embedded in an AAF file or Avid project. The BLG file is a small and portable data file that enables looks to be exchanged with all Baselight systems including Daylight and FLIP.
Baselight for Avid allows you to view—or to render—grades passed between departments with the BLG data encoded in AAF files - without purchase. It’s the perfect solution 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, which can be purchased directly from the software or from the web store, allows you to modify the grade with the power of the Baselight core toolset if you need to.Rendering support for Baselight features
While the Baselight for Avid effect doesn’t need to be rendered for playback and review, the software provides advanced rendering support for 99% of Baselight features - allowing final delivery of jobs (which may have been graded via a grade exchange with a full Baselight system) directly from your Avid suite.
The beauty of rendering from Avid means the Avid project is updated with links to the rendered shots automatically.Read Grades & Write Them - Without Delay
The Baselight Lens can change the way you work—for the better. With less time and increased creative demands, it’s easy for the grading process to feel squeezed. But the Baselight Lens gives you back that time without compromising results.
The Lens sits in an Avid effect layer above the sequence; just point it at a directory of BLG files and Baselight for Avid will apply the right grade to each clip automatically.
Not only that, but you can adjust the look in Avid and save it back to the grade directory so that all edit stations—and the colour suite—are working from the latest version all the time.
The Lens is real-time—scrub or play through the sequence and Baselight for Avid will follow the cursor to apply the latest grade at every point based solely on metadata.
• Familiar Controls
Baselight for Avid operates in its own window but also provides a full-screen user interface with exactly the same look and feel as full Baselight systems. If you’re not already familiar with Baselight, you’ll find the intuitive and friendly interface quick to learn and a pleasure to work with.
Baselight for Avid also supports the Slate control panel, along with the Avid Artist Color and the Tangent Element and Wave panels, for more precise, hands-on control of the Baselight grading tools.
• Layer Blending
Blend the output of a previous layer into the current layer easily by any amount you choose.
Using any of the available Photoshop-style blend modes, such as Mix, Add, Lighten, Darken, Overlay, Screen and so on, you can:
- Blend the original image back into the graded image.
- Select any layer as the blend source.
- Add another image to use as a blend source.
- Copy a grade from the gallery and blend it with your current grade.
• Unlimited Layers of Colour
The Baselight effect can be applied to any or all clips in your sequence and allows you to add multiple grading layers to each shot. Each layer can act either as an overall primary colour correction or as a secondary grade restricting the effect to selected parts of the image. There is no limit to the number of layers you can ‘stack’ so you can build up complex corrections to obtain the exact look you require.
• Automated Tracking
Baselight’s automatic tracking system provides several options to track objects throughout a shot: one-point, twopoint, or the area-based tracker. The area tracker allows you to define an area in the image rather than individual points and Baselight will accurately track the translation, rotation and scale of the object. As with the point trackers it is possible to track forwards or backwards, and also specify new references or add offsets during the track.
• Unrivalled Colour Space Management
Baselight for Avid even includes Truelight Colour Spaces, which allow colour space conversions to be performed with the speed, accuracy, and dynamic range permitted by native floating-point GPU functionality.
No external LUTs or Truelight Profiles are needed but, of course, you can use these if you prefer. No matter which solution you choose, Baselight ensures that you see the most accurate preview of the final deliverable.
• Built-in Keyers & Matte Generation
Separate grading or filter effects can be applied ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ of a matte, within any layer of a Baselight grading stack. Mattes are generated using a combination of builtin luma/chroma/3D keyers, bezier shapes and various modifiers allowing full adjustment including roll-off, softness and choking.Fine-tuning
Variable shape feathering allows shapes to have differential softness but without ever suffering from the folding and edging that occurs with other solutions. Edge artefacts won’t creep in as the shape animates—Baselight ensures that the feather is always smooth no matter how complex the shape.
In addition, the Matte Tool simplifies matte manipulation by combining the separate functions of filtering and refining. Filters available include blur, erode/dilate and the Sander, which removes speckles and holes without modifying the geometry of the matte.
Threshold and curve functions can also be applied to fill holes, adjust choking and further refine the matte.
• Customise the Grade with Ease
Baselight for Avid provides options to subdivide the grade. This feature is especially useful if you want to use a single instance of Baselight to apply an overall grade to a group of shots very quickly and then, when you are happy with the base grade, subdivide it so that it can be adjusted for individual scenes.
• Additional Effects
As well as our renowned film and video style grading tools, Baselight for Avid also provides RGB and HSL curves,
selective hue shift and a set of simple filters which can be used to further enhance the image. Advanced effects such as ‘bleach bypass’ or ‘faded film’ can also be applied using a set of look filters based on our powerful Truelight technology. All filters can be used in conjunction with colour grades as an overall effect or within an inside/outside layer.
• Easy Grade Comparison with Scratchpad
The enhanced Scratchpad makes it even easier to compare grades. View captured grade stacks applied to the current shot or in their original context. You can even view the sideby-side comparison on the client monitor.
The Scratchpad is designed for fast and simple saving and retrieval of looks (or grade stacks) that can be directly accessed with keyboard shortcuts or from one of the supported control surfaces.
Grab versions of stacks, cycle through Scratchpad slots, compare two versions or show all versions for a quick, at-aglance view of the Scratchpad contents.
• GPU Scopes
Baselight includes built-in Vectorscope, RGB Parade, YCbCr Parade and Luma Waveform displays plus a high-precision histogram. Accurate levels are displayed along with an indication of ‘illegal’ colours. Each scope can be displayed within the Baselight UI.Live Measurements
When the mouse pointer is clicked within the main image display a live readout appears on all scopes plus the histogram indicating values for the currently selected part of the image. A key advantage of built-in scopes is that they are not restricted to a standard video signal format so they will work with material at any resolution.
• Shot-to-Shot Navigation
Navigate through your Avid timeline with ease, without having to close the Baselight user interface to change to a different shot. You can use the F5/F6 keys on the keyboard to move to the previous or next shot that contains a Baselight filter while the Baselight UI is open, making that shot available instantly for grading.
• GPU Rendering
Baselight accelerates rendering performance using the system GPU, where available. Baselight for Avid is a realtime plugin, so most colour corrections can be played directly on the Avid timeline.
• Display Options
At the press of a button, toggle your display to wipe your graded shot with the raw version, or view the two images side-by-side. You can also compare the image against a snapshot grabbed from another part of the Avid timeline. An easy-access menu below the image allows you to toggle through different matte display options, such as B&W and overlay.What's new in v4.4.7725:Licensing Changes
- Baselight for Avid no longer requires a licence to scrub, playback or render Baselight effects in the Avid timeline - a licence is only required to open the Baselight for Avid UI to create, examine or modify grades.
This allows an operator on full Baselight to produce an AAF file containing Baselight for Avid effects which can be loaded and rendered on an Avid system simply by installing Baselight for Avid.
Similarly, an operator using Baselight for Avid to create Baselight effects can have those effects rendered on any Avid with Baselight for Avid installed, even the same machine after the licence has expired. This allows a freelancer to install a temporary licence on a machine to grade a timeline with confidence that their client will be able to render their timeline at any time in the future. [bug 33719]
- Floating licensing is now supported - Baselight for Avid can connect to a FilmLight Licence Server running on either Linux or Mac. See the Baselight for Avid User Guide for details.Miscellaneous
- The Alt+l keyboard accelerator now toggles the current Scaling/Clipping mode on & off. [bug 33863]
