Baselight for Avid enables you to add high quality colour corrections to your shots quickly using a comprehensive set of the powerful grading tools and other features available on full Baselight systems. If you’re not already familiar with Baselight, you’ll find the intuitive and friendly interface quick to learn and a pleasure to work with.
verything you do within Baselight for Avid-or a full Baselight system-is saved within the project and can be embedded in an AAF file. The grade can be exported from a full Baselight suite and imported into Avid so you can apply a full, complex grade in a matter of seconds-without rendering. It includes all tracking information and even keyframes so no manual adjustment is needed.
And the workflow is fully bidirectional-the grade can be changed in Avid and exchanged with a Baselight system or even another Avid suite just as easily, with all edits intact.
As well as modifed AAF files to exchange grades, Baselight for Avid supports the FilmLight BLG file format. The BLG file is a small and portable data file that enables looks to be exchanged with all Baselight systems including Daylight and FLIP. Not only that, but with the Baselight Lens you can auto-load grades from a directory of BLG files – based solely on video.

Baselight utilises the system GPU, if available, to accelerate rendering performance. Baselight for Avid is a real-time plugin, so most colour corrections can be played directly on the Avid timeline.
