    SCRATCH does not require you to select an "input color space" as such - you would be working directly on whatever the RED SDK gives you. If that is Rec709, or REDWideGamutRGB, Rec2020, etc. is totally up to you πŸ™‚ . You can set this per clip, or for the whole timeline, or all clips in your project. So if all clips are set to REDWideGamutRGB, this is what you're then working on (your "input" format if you want). From thereon out, there is an output color space on the main output node, that "unifies" everything - to e.g. Rec709 2.4 gamma. This obviously is applied after any grade - same as for any display transform, which you can set for UI and preview screen separately. Greetz, Mazze

    Blackmagic Micro Panel vs. Tangent Wave 2

    What Jeff said. The Micro is well manufactured, but has mainly two disadvantages imho: It only works with Resolve and it is quite heavy, which can be a disadvantage if you have to carry it around (i.e. on-set). The Wave2 is lighter, due to its plastic chassis and works with almost any application, incl. Resolve. The downsides of the Wave2 are basically, that it's plastic (very robust plastic, though) and that it has master dials, instead of rings. That is more a question of taste, I guess - but at the same time, it's also a reason why the Wave2 is more affordable. Cheers, Mazze

    Hi Andres, the upcoming SCRATCH 9.1 will ship with quite a big update on its color management, allowing you to work natively in various camera color spaces (such as REDWideGamutRGB and Log3G10). So when loading RED footage into SCRATCH, you'd debayer it to those REDWideGamutRGB and Log3G10 using IPP2 and then work your way off from there. You can do so by either setting the display transform to Rec709 (or anything else) and basically work before the transform to Rec709, or just work on the log image as-is and grade from there. As for roundtripping from other applications: SCRATCH allows you to dynamically set the reel-id of any (or all) shots to different formats: I.e. just "A004", or "A004C012" (to stay within the 8-character limit of EDLs), or even the full clipname: "A004_C012_XDFIGFN". Depending on how the editing app interpreted the reel-id and put it into the XML/AAF/EDL you are conforming in SCRATCH, you are able to accommodate for this. Let me know if you need anything else. Cheers, Mazze
  4. Hey everyone! As the title states - 20% off black aluminium rings until end of NAB πŸ™‚ . I'll be in LA the week before NAB and obviously also at the show, carrying a bunch of sets around with me, if anyone is interested in trying them out before buying. And obviously, if you wanna save some shipping cost, let me know and I can just deliver them in person πŸ˜‰ . Cheers, Mazze

    SCRATCH Essential Training

    Hey Tom - it depends on how you define high-end . A lot of studios use it for review sessions and screenings, vfx houses use it as vfx reference player and asset management system in combination with FTrack, Shotgun and NIM. As a finishing system it's mostly used by smaller boutiques (which doesn't mean it's not high end, though πŸ˜‰ ) and some bigger companies, which use a so-called site-license (annual all-you-can-eat). And then obviously we have a pretty big DIT community that use it for dailies. Lastly, when it comes to high end live streaming (more specifically high end VR live streaming), I think there's nothing else out there that lets you stitch incoming camera streams, do the geometry conversion, grade, comp, add OFX-plugins, Matchbox shaders and output through SDI, DisplayPort, LiveStream (to Facebook/Youtube/Custom server) and Headset at once and it realtime on a single GPU. πŸ™‚

    Scratch 9 asking for openCL drivers

    Cool πŸ™‚ . Let me know if you run into anything else! Best, Mazze

    Scratch 9 asking for openCL drivers

    Hi Bruno, SCRATCH mainly works on OpenGL (i.e. all color transforms applied inside the app, etc.) . However, debayer (for all raw formats), YUV-conversion, scopes and blurs (from a certain threshold onwards) are calculated using OpenCL. You do not need specific "OpenCL drivers" as such. I assume this is what happened: Windows Update broke the Nvidia driver (it loves to do that) and as such, OpenCL support is missing. If you start SCRATCH and click into the upper half of the screen, an info chart should fold down and show some details. Amongst those you'll probably read "OpenCL: not supported" or something along those lines. SCRATCH will obviously run without, but then revert back to CPU for all OpenCL tasks - which makes things rather slow. Fix is fairly straight forward: Download and install the latest Nvidia driver (or any older version you prefer) and install that. After a reboot, all should be good. Cheers, Mazze
  10. Hi folks, almost forgot to post this one - a new tutorial that shows how to setup the Python bridge between SCRATCH and Nuke πŸ™‚ .

    Calling all FCPx editors

    Pretty stable I would say. Not much growth from what I can see, but solid user base and happily chugging along... πŸ™‚ . However, I don't see it being used for edit much (which you can do inside Flame perfectly fine), but really more for online (conform, comp, finishing).

    Lustre ACS Panels (2x)

    Hi everyone, we have once again two sets of Lustre ACS panels in stock. Both sets are fully functional, ship with power supplies, Wacom grip pen and keyboard stand. Overall condition is good, although they do have their marks and scratches on the soft coated surface. Sets are located in Germany. Please PM me for pricing and/or more information and pictures. Set 1: Set 2: Greetz, Mazze
  13. ... and as per popular request, here's a darker shade of grey. We might actually go with that, after all πŸ˜‰ .
  14. Here's a little update. I was wondering wether I should also offer the rings in silver - had two prototype sets made. One in plain silver: The other one in a somewhat darker shade (for the sake of fancyness, lets call it 'spacegrey'): Here's black, spacegrey and silver in comparison: What do you all think? What'd be your preference and why? Thanks! Mazze
