3sixtymedia has installed a Baselight Two grading system along with 20 Baselight for Avid seats for its editing stations and Pro Tools dubbing suites.
3sixtymedia senior colourist Neil Parker said the set-up allowed the MediaCityUK-based facility to show production teams the latest graded images in their dubbing theatres or finishing suites without waiting for projects to be transferred or pictures to be rendered.
He said: “Producers and directors have always expected to see the best pictures wherever they are. If they see something in one room, they expect to be able to see it across the entire facility.
“It also means when we set a grade in Baselight it isn’t locked down. If the shot gets re-edited – which it often does – they can see the changes to the grade in the edit suite.
“If they extend a shot, for instance, the grade will follow. The producer does not need to wait for the grading suite to be available to finish it. That is a great bonus and a huge time saver.”
The facility has just delivered the second series of Robson Green’s Tales from Northumberland (pictured), which was shot with a Canon C300 and then graded using the Baselight workflow.
