    Job - I agree that relational color correction has a lot of value in quick turnaround - but that really is a metadata play that "could" be applied to any AVX type architecture if Media Composer were developed to be a platform. Relational should be available based on any relationship you want to give it, and change as needed when needed. The relational color correction today was based on "tape" sources as well as a handful of other columns like clip name, but could have easily been extended to Scene, Slate, location, KeyKode prefix, etc. And today, with file-based formats, some of that source linking needs to be improved (same for multicam). BaseLight has a view in its application where all the shots from "same source" pop up like a 9 split etc. where they can all be corrected as a whole while looking at them, or individually while in the same view. If AVX handed top level clip metadata for the sequence, there is reason to think it could be done via the AVX interface as well. Then there is Universal Mastering, and you were generous to give that a .5. :)

    RT gradeing with Baselight inside MC;

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipqfoGMMJ-0

    add in fast fast 3D comps inside MC with Digital Fusion, and the Avid news really came from outside Avid...

    Both of these will be running in DS as well, and that's resoultion indipendant - has had RED 4K project presets for a few years now

But the demo I saw, it was very responsive and of course the amount of control you have is great... finally in Media Composer! ;)

    I am sure other vendors will look to the same AVX plug-in to offer similar functionality, but for $995 it's a no-brainer. How many here would buy this rather than the crossgrade to a Symphony for the same money? Makes for an interesting discussion.

    External monitoring a big key for me. Hopefully they manage to get that in.

    Avid DS is what you're thinking about, I think (the one that is a different app).

    Having to use that tiny uncalibrated viewer window and no scopes goes against the two primary things I've been told about CC. Namely, you need to use a calibrated monitor and you should use scopes.

    I agree with MichaelP. Performance on the Baselight plugin was VERY impressive. Sure it was a demo, but those smart folks at Filmlight understand a thing or two about performance Look forward to test driving it, and yes external monitoring is a must; But in terms of workflow to get away from round-tripping (via different sets of media) on the grade will be worth every penny, and save huge amounts of time and head scratching...

    Not sure what I can say (probably not much) but you will probably be happy. :-)
