FilmLight Harnesses Machine Language with Baselight 6.0

FilmLight’s latest version of its Baselight grading software, Baselight 6.0 benefits from several years of machine language (ML) development and new features designed to bring gains in productivity and creativity to today’s increasingly demanding and competitive post-production environment.

Many of its beta testers are already relying on the new tools, which include an improved and modernised timeline, a new primary grading tool, X Grade, a unique new look development tool, Chromogen, plus a new ML-based tool, Face Track.

According to Martin Tlaskal, Head of Development at FilmLight, “We believe this release moves our technology forward significantly, and provides a platform that works in synchronicity with today’s colourist. Face Track, for example, has been proven to greatly reduce the considerable amount of time colourists spend in the grading suite on beauty work – typically the need to repeat processes and corrections for every appearance of each character. By harnessing cutting-edge advances in machine learning, Face Track will revolutionise this – allowing colourists to track faces, make corrections or enhancements, and apply them across multiple scenes.”

Using an underlying ML model, Face Track finds and tracks faces in a scene, adjusting smoothly as each face moves and turns. It attaches a polygon mesh to each face, which allows perspective-aware tools such as Paint and Shapes to distort with the mesh. The colourist’s productivity is further boosted by the ability to copy corrections and enhancements made in Face Track to the entire timeline ­– with a simple copy and paste, these previously repetitive corrections can be applied to the same face across an entire sequence or episode.

FilmLight’s Face Track technology has been developed from scratch internally, but the company has also ensured Baselight 6.0 is fully ML-ready. By developing a framework, which it calls Flexi, FilmLight is now in a position to integrate future ML-based tools into Baselight quickly and easily – allowing FilmLight and its customers to access the best grading tools and stay on top of cutting-edge technologies now and in the future.

In Baselight 6.0, colourists will also find the RIFE ML-based retimer, a reworked Curve Grade, integrated alpha for easy compositing, a new sophisticated Gallery for improved searching and sorting, plus a wealth of new and enhanced colour tools such as Sharpen Luma, a built-in Lens Flare tool, Bokeh for out-of-focus camera effects, Loupe magnifying for fast and accurate adjustments, an upgraded Hue Angle, and much more.
