Getting started with Baselight Look

Getting started with Baselight Look



There is a lack of Baselight knowledge in the industry at the moment, and learning Baselight has generally been challenging because most of the systems are only available at the high-end post production facilities. Fortunately, Filmlight have released Baselight Look which is a free Mac-only "student version" that includes the same interface, color science and features as the full Baselight system.

However, as Baselight Look primarily is a learning tool there are some restrictions.

  • Rendering is limited to 8-bit H.264 files only.
  • Projects created in Baselight Look can not be imported into a full Baselight system or into Baselight Editions (and vice-versa).
  • Some color panels are not supported.

Get started quickly

Getting started with Baselight can be time consuming, and requires new users to go through hours of online tutorials. We know some just want to download the software and quickly get in there to see what it's all about. That's why we have challenged our Baselight instructor @Josh Petok to create one single 20 minute long video that includes everything you need to know for setting up a project, importing media, doing a simple grade and exporting a file.

The video is only available for premium members, please login or subscribe to gain access.
