Still images captured from the live image can play an important role on set as well as in post production – the saved camera images document the daily production activities. For example
- the DOP uses collected stills as a reference for the visual composition and look of a scene, and
- the DIT stores still images for simplifying the matching of looks and clips during dailies creation.
With LiveGrade you can save image files from the captured live signal at any time. The new settings in LiveGrade let you choose between different formats (JPG, TIFF in 8bit and 16bit) and enable to use current look metadata for the filename. When these settings are chosen once, you can continuously create new still images with just a keyboard shortcut.
