Daylight is designed to handle the end-to-end requirements of your dailies workflow, from ingest and review through to the generation of material for editorial, VFX and other deliverables. The application makes use of the core technology from full Baselight systems, but in a macOS software-only package that you can deploy into your near-set environment.
Daylight is also offered as a complete bespoke Linux workstation that you can deploy into your near-set environment; contact [email protected] for more details.
If you are working with a post-production facility equipped with Baselight or Baselight Editions, the full grade from Daylight can be encapsulated in a completely portable, cross-platform BLG file. No amount of additional GPUs or CPUs can be as fast or as flexible as this renderless workflow.
Daylight also makes use of over 10 years of accumulated Baselight development to provide comprehensive support for all camera and deliverable formats—including audio and retiming capability. Support for sophisticated rescaling, filtering, masking and burn-in operations, alongside Truelight Colour Spaces for accurate colour transforms, means that all of your deliverable requirements can be met by one application.
