I have been finishing on Avid Symphony since Version 1.0. I love it, i haven't found a system faster or more productive than Symphony.
Here is the catch and my question.... Since I am so verse on the AVID system and I need to finish at 4k, what grading system do i need to upgrade to?
I have heard a lot about Resolve, Scratch, Baselight and lustre, but being so used to grading on AVID symphony, what do you all recommend would be the easiest transition to go to?
I also have an AVID MEDIA ENGINE/ISIS and the system would need to integrate into this as we finish a lot of tv commercials and AVID DNX-185X.
This new system would have to be able to finish feature films at 4K and we would have to have the ability to deliver to the distributors in what ever format they require.
We currently finish features at 1:1 uncompressed AVID codec at 4:4:4 and output to HDCAM SR with 8 track audio. But we are starting to get requests to finish at 4K.
Sorry forgot to mention that the new system has to be fully compatible with RED and EPIC as I have 1 rocket card at the moment but I don't mind buying more.
Thanks in advance.
