What are your favourite tools in Baselight?:
“…I love the Texture Equaliser, and the simplicity of Base Grade within the ACES workflow.”
Doug Delaney, Technicolor LA
Long interview, about “Captain Marvel”. Doug doesn’t mention ACES specifically, but we know from Michael Maloney (Manager of Image, Color and Lab at Marvel Studios) who presented in the ACES booth at Cine Gear recently, that all recent Marvel Studio movies (including Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther and more) used ACES.

What tools from Baselight do you use the most and why?
“I’d say I use a 50/50 mix of Video Grade and Film Grade as my primary on most broadcast jobs; for drama or comedy I prefer to use the colour transform pipeline and work in ACES, with the Film Grade and curves being more prominent.”
