Assimilate Announced the Immediate Availability of Scratch 5.2

Assimilate announced on November 18, 2010 the immediate availability of SCRATCH 5.2

This new version adds exciting new features that enable increased productivity and creativity in both the grading and finishing of complex projects as well as the dailies workflow.

Here are the new features for finishing artists:

-Improved stereo 3D-specific features, such as:

An S-Lock feature that allows artist to keep a left eye/right eye dual view configuration while interactively selecting which stream to grade, sync or visually manipulate. This unique feature brings a far more intuitive approach to stereoscopic color grading.

Convergence, scaling, and versioning that enable a streamlined, highly efficient 3D pipeline

Supported output to any one of the available stereo patterns: side by side, over/under, line interleave, checkerboard, or anaglyph. This new plug-in enables post production facilities to be more competitive by offering a broader range of output options to their clients.

A Consolidate function that seamlessly archives only the conformed media elements of a project into a centralized directory, even when the original files exist in different locations across a network. This function not only saves time when retrieving archived project elements, but dramatically towers storage hardware costs.

New features for dailies production and viewing

-New additions for RED based productions allow Directors, DP’s and post artists virtually unlimited creativity and flexibility in the dailies process.

These features includes:

The association of meta-data based on shots rather than tracks

The ability to easily update R3D settings across multiple clips at once

Support for the REDlogFilm Gamma

Support for auto-sync of Broadcast Wave files (including calculation of slip values) to significantly improve the efficiency of the dailies workflow.

Software download and licensing information

For existing clients on valid software maintenance, please note that 5.2 is NOT backward compatible and loading a 5.2 project back into a previous version might cause loss of data. You do not require a new license when upgrading from version v5.0 or v5.1, but when upgrading from a prior version, you will. Please send your log file and old license to
