Daylight as a dedicated Color platform

Recommended Posts

I have been digging into Baselight for Avid quite a bit and absolutely love it. The full baselight seems to be a bit out of my reach however I was curious to learn more about Daylight. Is Daylight basically Baselight but without the dedicated hardware? Does Daylight have all the functionality of Baselight Editions but as a standalone app with a media management and timeline viewer? Thanks.

Daylight doesn't have timeline so it's not like Baselight. It has all the tools but conforming is limited to one video track with simple transitions. Other than that is very capable.

Thanks Nikola. So would you say it isn't worth the extra cost compared to Baselight Editions? I will download the 14 day trial once I am a little more proficient with Baselight Editions so I can really get the feel for the software.

To be honest, I've never used Editions. I've tried once but I was so frustrated with Avid interface and lack of realtime playback so I gave up. Daylight is very capable software color grading wise. You should check that trial.
