Assimilate has announced the immediate availability of its new Digital Imaging Technician Pack+, a bundle of three tightly integrated applications that greatly simplifies the DIT’s day-to-day operations with the most efficient and streamlined workflow to date. The bundle includes Assimilate's Live Looks for live grading, Hedge for camera-media offload and back-up, and Assimilate’s Scratch.
The workflow starts with Live Looks for live grading content from any number of cameras in real time and even adding advanced effects like green-screen background replacement and texture effects, which can be carried over to dailies transcoding later in Scratch. Each time when saving a grade, all the metadata, either input by the user or delivered via the live SDI signal from all cameras, is saved in the form of a readable text doc and an XML that is suited for further pipeline scripting in visual effects/post. All grades and metadata are stored in an easy-to-approach folder structure that can simply be delivered to VFX/post.
Paul Matthijs Lombert, CEO at Hedge said, "When the Assimilate team reached out to us about an integration, it was a no-brainer. With Hedge as the starting point for many productions, it now elegantly hands off the media and metadata to dailies transcoding, greatly simplifying the process for those that use the tools day to day.”
“With DIT Pack+ we are providing the best, most efficient workflow from camera to post,” said Jeff Edson, CEO at Assimilate. “The demands in productions continue to grow, putting more and more work and responsibility on the DIT. Delivering the best-of-breed solution that optimizes the workflow and efficiency for the highest levels of productivity is what DIT Pack+ is all about.”
Available immediately, DIT Pack+ starts at $149 monthly and $899 annually, with a permanent license priced at $1499. Download at www.assimilateinc.com.
