A powerful dailies platform for shot management and high-performance transcoding. Daylight can be purchased as an annual or a three-month subscription.

Daylight 6.0 is now available.

All shots can have full Baselight 6.0 grades, with the application of pre-authored looks from Chromogen, or the creation of targeted looks using X Grade along with the range of other powerful new operators.

If you have a current v5 licence and would like to upgrade to 6.0 before it ends, contact daylight‑[email protected].

The web store allows you to try or buy the macOS Daylight application, which will run on any Mac system equipped with macOS 12-14. Alternatively, as your throughput requirements increase you can upgrade to the Linux version of Daylight, which supports multiple Nvidia GPUs: contact daylight‑[email protected] for more details.

14-Day Trial gives you access to a fully functioning version of Daylight for 14 days.

3-Month Subscription allows you to access a full licence for Daylight for three (3) months.

Annual Subscription allows you to access a full licence for Daylight for one (1) year.

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.

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.
