First Light video demo

First Light will be available as a Beta release on both Windows and Mac sometime the week of April 27.

In the mean time First Light was received quite enthusiastically at NAB. Dave Basulto from Filmmaking Central did a great interview and demo with David Newman.

Absolutely spectacular. Talk about added value.

Just one question - what if you cut a single clip on the Premiere timeline and you want to invoke different grading on each clip? Does the single clip need to be separated into multiple files?

Perhaps David will have more specific info to share, but in talking with him at NAB, I got the impression that the Prospect real time engine is chasing API changes that'll occur in the late May Adobe update. So unfortunately don't be surprised if it takes a couple more months before the complete Prospect products are ready. Hope not, but that's what I got from the conversation.

Pete, I saw the Adobe announcement on the CS4 update, but where did you see the info on the "late May" release? Doesn't seem like Adobe to announce an update so far ahead...

This thing looks really awesome!! Can't wait to see if I can get it--surely looks like it'll beat applying normal color balance on the clips in PPro, especially when you need the effect applied to all cuts of a monolithic clip!

Thanks,
Matt

David, will First Light be part of all Cineform releases?
And will those who purchased NEOHD v3 recently get a free update to NEOHDv4 with First Light?

First Light

David,
Loved the video demo. Seems a great product if you've captured all your scenes as descrete files.

What about a work flow where you import one large file, and during editing keep dividing it into many clips. Can these be brought back into first light easily?
Is there any way to get multiple clips up in First light to match clip to clip grading?
