Prelight & Prelight ON-SET
Prelight is a macOS application designed to allow a Director of Photography (DoP) and other creatives to freely author, apply and modify looks. The commercial version, Prelight ON‐SET, extends these tools for the Digital Imaging Technician (DIT) for use during pre‐production, production and post.
Prelight and Prelight ON-SET v5 are now available.
If you had previously purchased an earlier version, you can upgrade for free. Go to Prelight Downloads to download and install v5.

The upgrade to Prelight ON‐SET is entirely optional.

- macOS 10.10‐10.13
- iMac, MacMini, MacBook Pro or Mac Pro with the following
