Today we released Play Pro - an improved version of the old SCRATCH Play.
Play Pro now supports SDI-output, pretty stellar h264/h265 encoding, as well as ProRes encoding on Windows.
It's a nice tool to have handy for e.g. dailies review, or simpler transcoding jobs (e.g. for delivery).
Starting at 19 bucks a month, it's pretty affordable as well 🙂 .

I came across this Scratch tutorial about beauty retouching. In still photography, retouchers often tend to use cloning, healing and B/D techniques. What is your approach to beauty work?

In a blockbuster film or tv series what is the average time of color correction?

Sometimes I think we run so much due to the term of the channels and producers here in Brazil.

How do you work when you receive a material to create the look?
