Filmlight has opened up their beta program for Prelight, their tool designed for use by both DITs and DOPs to create, apply, and change looks on set, on the fly. If you’ve used Baselight you know the toolset. It is a 30 day rolling beta (meaning if the program is still open after 30 days, your beta license will renew)
Here is a rundown of the feature set from James Milne:
The free version of Prelight allows you to create looks using all the grading tools and colour science available in our Daylight dailies software and Baselight grading software.
The commercial version of Prelight, called Prelight On-set, is designed to support all the hardware required for on-set colour correction, namely LUT boxes, and SDI interfaces.
Looks can be exchanged between the free and commercial versions of Prelight. The on-set DIT using Prelight On-Set can exchange looks & images with the DOP using the free Prelight. The DOP using free Prelight can then create new looks and give them back to the DIT to use on-set. You can also exchange looks with the upstream colourists, and use Prelight to provide look information for dailies.
Prelight supports all the Truelight Colour Spaces and Baselight grading tools, and is also compatible with CDL grades, and can import/export CDL data in CCC, ALE, EDL, etc, and 3D LUTs in a variety of formats. Truelight Colour Spaces is a powerful basis for dealing with the new challenges presented by HDR production.
