London, United Kingdom – Image Systems continues to move its colour grading software technology forward, increasing creativity and productivity in DI by delivering a flexible file-based workflow. Nucoda 2011.2 is now a 64-bit only application giving increased performance particularly when using memory intensive tools such as the industry standard DVO image processing toolset. The software includes a number of enhancements and refinements to the user interface as well as new features for the Precision grading panel. The introduction of a project storage feature speeds up project handling and enhancements to the backup process gives increased confidence to users. There are also updates for file import and export, including support for the ProRes codec from Apple. In addition to the existing support for importing ProRes, Nucoda now allows users to export files in any ProRes resolution, particularly benefiting workflows utilizing the ARRI Alexa camera and Final Cut Pro. For a complete ProRes workflow, Nucoda provides an end-to-end solution without the need to encode on an intermediate workstation. Nucoda users can also now select any layer to create intermediate caches. New tools available directly from the Precision panel manage and replace cached material on the timeline when the original material has been changed or updated. The software’s stereo workflow includes greater control over the monitoring of tracks. New assignable Left, Right and mono tracks allow stereo compositing and flexible monitoring options to ensure the user only sees what he needs to.
