Technicolor announced the launch of version 1.5 of its Color Assist video color correction and grading software package. Key improvements of version 1.5 include compatibility with Adobe After Effects and support for AVCHD video and still images.
Color Assist 1.5 draws on Technicolor’s heritage in color science to bring studio color grading and color correction tools to users who want professional-quality results.
“The professional postproduction tools Adobe offers enable our customers to create high-quality productions,” said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. “Now Color Assist 1.5 builds on its existing support for Adobe Premiere Pro by adding compatibility with Adobe After Effects, therefore giving the postproduction community more choices in the tools they use in their workflow. Creative professionals are always squeezed for time, and Color Assist 1.5 is quick and powerful.”
Version 1.5 also includes important workflow improvements that make it easier to learn and use.
“Over the past five months we’ve listened intently to our customers and responded with a plethora of enhancements – like our Pixelmeter, improved bin and browser navigation, and workspace customization – that improve efficiency and expand creative options,” said Alejandro Guerrero, senior vice president, general manager of Technicolor CineStyle.
Color Assist 1.5 is currently available for both Mac and PC users for $99. In addition to Adobe After Effects, the system supports Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and higher.
