Santa Clara, California – Assimilate, a provider of post-production tools for digital workflows, has shipped the 6.1 versions of its renowned Scratch digital intermediate finishing tool. This updated version offers new features designed to deliver higher productivity and creativity to artists working with Red and HDRx media, as well as those working in production grading and finishing pipelines. Scratch version 6.1 provides support for the upcoming Element control panel from Tangent, and includes the support for SDI output on the Mac via AJA KONA 3G cards first announced at IBC, 2011. Scratch 6.1 follows in the tradition of offering fast, intuitive access to the entire range of controls via a broad spectrum of control panels – from no panel at all, to the new Tangent Element. The Element will be available on the Assimilate Store as soon as it ships (expected in January, 2012). Scratch is Assimilate’s flagship data-centric DI system for the playback, conform, editing, color grading, compositing and finishing of high-end digital workflows. Scratch Lab is the industry’s first digital lab tool designed to meet the requirements of on-location workflows and VFX dailies pipelines. Scratch is available immediately and is a free upgrade for users who are currently on maintenance and support. New licenses are available for purchase either via Assimilate’s worldwide network of resellers, or online via the Assimilate Store at https://store.assimilateinc.com/.
