SGO has upgraded its Mistika platform to Mistika 10, elevating the efficiency of colour-based workflows and providing greater finesse in colour-grading processes.
“With a brand new colour interface being in the core of this revolutionary upgrade, Mistika has started to shed its skin, initiating a new era of Mistika Technology,” said Miguel Angel Doncel, CEO at SGO. “Mistika 10 offers its users a facilitated way to unlock the exceptional power of our technology, provide them with more control and boost the productivity of the colour-based workflows.”
“The availability and development of colour tools in the market has been significantly decreasing over the past few years and many colourists and finishing artists are looking for a differentiating solution that takes colour to new levels,” adds Geoff Mills, Managing Director at SGO. “We have certainly been listening and Mistika 10 both confirms and demonstrates our total commitment to existing users and the many new ones who are looking for alternative solutions and want to join the rapidly growing community of Mistika Boutique and Ultima creatives.”
When planning the new layout of the Colour interface the main goal was to facilitate operativity without discarding any of the existing features nor limiting Mistika’s colour corrector, says Adrian Gonzalez Diaz, Mistika Expert and UX designer who works closely with the SGO development team defining this substantial upgrade.
“Once we achieved that, we added new functionalities we believe would bring an extra value, such as scopes integration to primaries and bands, new system in primaries to control offset and contrast with a trackball, quick access in curves and qualifier to add points and choose tones, reorganised RGB curves… and so much more!”
In this upgrade available for Mistika Boutique and Mistika Ultima, users will also find many other new features and enhancements boosting their overall productivity, such as completely redesigned visual editor, metadata embed for RAW media, embedded scale parameters for all clips, quick access to shapes, new common shape presets for all FX and reorganized menu for histories, among others.
