FilmLight releases Baselight 5.0 ahead of IBC2017

At IBC2017, FilmLight is celebrating the formal release of Baselight 5.0, as well as exhibiting the 5.0 colour tools across its entire product range.

Offering over 50 new features, version 5.0 has been comprehensively put through its paces over the last year on a variety of real projects with complex workflows. Baselight 5.0 has been at the heart of blockbusters, high-end television series and commercials. The feedback from colourists around the world has been very positive, and the results are stunning.

One of the key features in version 5.0 is Base Grade, a new primary grading environment for modern colour workflows and HDR.

Base Grade makes you so much faster in matching and creating stunning looks in a single layer, said Philipp Horsch, Senior Colourist and CEO at BFS Entertainment GmbH Munich. The new subdivision of dim/dark shadows and light/bright highlights, each with its own pivot and falloff, basically gives you four keys already integrated in the layer.

Version 5.0 aims to make grading for HDR even easier with the addition of colour space families, and the new Gamut Compression tool. It makes moving between colour spaces simple and seamless.

The new colour space families make delivering diverse masters really easy, added Horsch. With 5.0 I can now concentrate exclusively on the creative job and dont have to worry so much about the colour science.

Gamut Compression is so useful, especially when dealing with car commercials, where the LED brake lights often push the saturation too far, added Mick Vincent, Senior Colourist at The Mill, London. Baselight 5.0 has been so exciting already, and there are so many more tools to try out we have a great year ahead of us with this system at our fingertips.

The addition of many new creative features including Grid Warp, Paint, Perspective Tracker and Texture Equaliser have also proven to be very popular.

Baselight 5.0 has made finishing projects much faster and with less hassle which is key for television content with a demanding production schedule, said James Perry, Editor/Colourist on The Dr. Phil Show. Instead of having to send shots to our graphics department for wire removal or general touch-ups, I can fix them easily in Baselight.

Martin Tlaskal, Lead Developer at FilmLight, added, These are just a handful of many comments from talented colourists, who have collaborated with us on the testing and refinement of version 5.0. It is extremely gratifying to know that our ideas have proven so valuable in practice among the creative community.

With Baselight 5.0 now launched, the new features will soon be deployed across FilmLights other BLG-enabled products; Daylight 5.0, the dailies and media management platform, as well as Baselight for Avid 5.0 and Baselight for NUKE 5.0 in the Baselight Editions range, will enter beta after IBC, with Prelight 5.0 to follow soon. FilmLight is showing all of these products at IBC2017 on stand 7.F31.
