“FilmLight is probably one of the companies that follow and help their clients the most, and they have a very important support system. They don’t abandon their clients once the system has been bought. Baselight is my Rolls Royce.”

Yvan Lucas, Los Angeles

“I love the fact that there are so many ways to achieve a look. I’m always discovering new techniques. And Baselight also gives me the ability to manage colour workflows so specifically, which makes it easier to work seamlessly alongside VFX.”

This release includes many improvements to boost control throughout the grading process, such as Partial Conform and T-CAM v2, with even more new features that keep the system at the cutting edge of creativity, including Lens Distortion and an expanded Look Library. New features to improve confidence and collaboration with other departments are also included, such as improved trackers, wildcards for sequence versioning, improved export facilities, and more.

Export with ease

With an ever-increasing array of file export requirements, we’ve made Baselight’s Export functions even more powerful and efficient.

T-CAM v2

While T-CAM already ensures the best image quality possible, T‑CAM v2 improves appearance matching between viewing conditions, and also includes better shadow definition and improved skin tones, with less noise in underexposed images.

Partial conform

Conform new media to existing shots in the timeline via the Shots View, rather than needing to load an AAF, XML or EDL.

Improved trackers

Baselight is already renowned for its tracking capabilities, but in Baselight 5.3 we’ve made tracking even easier to use and more powerful.
