Quantel has released a major software upgrade for its Pablo Rio color and finishing software and Pablo PA workflow assist software – the eighth release in the space of just one year. The new release focuses on integration into all post pipelines, adding Apple ProRes 422 import and export and enhanced Avid conform. It also adds support for new file formats, including 4K XAVC export as well as support for the latest RED Cameras.
Apple ProRes 422 support includes encoding to ProRes 4444, ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (LT) and ProRes 422 (Proxy).
The new software also supports conform of Avid DVE metadata. This means that any DVE picture flips, flops, resizes or rotations made during Avid offline will now transfer directly into Pablo Rio and Pablo PA, freeing up time in the online session.
The inclusion of the latest RED V5.0 SDK also enables support for DRAGONcolor and REDgamma4.
Other new features include Mocha Tracker DVE Homography – the ability to track an object and pin the tracking data onto a shape that is changing over time; Blur normalization – automatically taking account of image resolution when applying softness or blur, and single button access to the Multi-layer timeline from the Neo Nano color panel.
V2.0 rev9 software for Pablo Rio and Pablo PA is available now.
