What’s new in Livegrade Studio 6.0?

Optimized for HDR:

  • Output Colorspaces: For streamlined handling of looks with different output colorspaces, e.g., with HDR-SDR dual monitoring setups:
    • Set your look’s output colorspace manually or automatically for pre-installed LUT presets and ODTs
    • Read and export the output colorspace of custom LUTs in the comment of the LUT file
  • Output Colorspace Attribute: Inspect the output colorspace attribute of looks in the shots table and the info tab, and include the output colorspace token in wildcards
  • Output Colorspace Smart Group: Filter your shot library using the output colorspace smart group
  • HDR/SDR Video Scopes: Set the appropriate color primaries (Rec.709/Rec.2020) for your video scopes manually or automatically based on your look’s output colorspace
  • False Color Preferences: Choose to force the false color filter to be applied on your “Graded”, “Bypass”ed or “Original” video signal for appropriate quality control of HDR video signals
  • YCbCr Color Conversion: Set the YCbCr Color Conversion Matrix (Rec.709/Rec.2020) for LUT boxes and video I/O devices and pass on the appropriate attribute in recorded QuickTime movies
  • Color Profile Tagging: Enable/disable color profile tagging for still images and apply the appropriate color profile for most common colorspaces (Rec.709/Rec.2020/Rec.2100 PQ/Rec.2100 HLG/sRGB)

ACES:

  • ACES v.1.3: Support for ACES version 1.3.0 including Reference Gamut Compress parameter for improved accuracy with extreme color ranges
  • Load CLF in LMT: Load Common LUT Format (CLF) files in LMT node for convenient round-tripping in ACES workflows
  • ACES Look Metadata: The metadata fields “ACES Input Transform”, “ACES Input TransformID”, “ACES Output Transform”, “ACES Output TransformID and “Reference Gamut Compress” allow inspecting ACES look metadata in the shot library and communicating relevant info via reports

Color Grading:

  • Knee Curve Node: Create simple “knee” and “toe” curve adjustments to quickly modify contrast range and limits of highlights and shadows

Virtual Production:

  • Brompton Processors: Fine-tune the color balance of LED systems by controlling the 3D LUT in connected Brompton Tessera processors
  • Unreal Engine Integration: Connect to Unreal Engine systems via the Pomfort Virtual LUT Box plugin (in beta) and color grade the content on LED video walls

Playback Controls:

  • Jump to Thumbnail Frame: Jump to the Thumbnail Frame of your recorded movie
  • Loop Playback: Loop playback of your loaded movie in the viewer window
  • New Player HUD: Buttons for “Set Thumbnail Frame” and “Jump to Thumbnail Frame” and enable/disable “Loop” playback directly in the player HUD of the image viewer

Media Management:

  • Add Media Folder and Import Media: Add a directory with media as a media folder and import its containing reference media directly (without copy process)
  • Duplicate As Shot With Still Image: Duplicate your shots with movie recordings as a shot with still image at the thumbnail frame’s position
  • Delete Shots And Media Independently: Delete shots and their associated media files independently to avoid conflicts with shared media folders or for transforming shots with hi-res media into “look only” shots
  • Reveal Media In Finder: Reveal media files in their associated media folder directly from a contextual menu item in the shot library

Share Still Images:

  • Airdrop Stills: Instantly share graded still images via Airdrop to other Apple devices directly from your shot library

Sony VENICE 2 Integration:

  • Interactive Grading: Color grade on connected VENICE 2 cameras in real-time via ASC-CDL compliant nodes in the grading mode “CDL + LUT”
  • Look Upload from Shot Library: Upload looks from Livegrade’s shot library onto connected VENICE 2 cameras as User 3D LUT
  • Manual Look Upload: Upload the look from your current slot to connected VENICE 2 cameras as “User 3D LUT”
  • Look Exchange: Benefit from auto-generated look metadata in recorded camera files

Capture Devices:

  • Use All Connectors as Inputs: Use all SDI-connectors of half-duplex capture devices as inputs (e.g., AJA Io4K Plus)

Tetrahedral Interpolation:

  • LUT Interpolation: Choose between different interpolation methods and benefit from tetrahedral interpolation for improved color accuracy on video output and still image export

Project Preferences:

  • Project Settings: Labels and custom fields are now project-dependent
  • Custom Fields: Assign titles for Custom fields for using individual names for your custom metadata fields

Look Library:

  • PFLA Export / Import: Exchange your look library or a section of look presets with other users or Livegrade systems

Fully Native:

  • Apple Silicon M1 Support: Application runs natively on Apple Silicon M1 machines*

More Features:

  • Camera Metadata: ARRI and RED cameras connected via network can be added as a metadata-only source in all grading modes (with grading disabled)
  • H.264 Record Format: Record movies in the space-saving H.264 video codec
  • HEIC Still Images: Create still images in the highly-efficient HEIC format (8-Bit only)

* IS-mini device support only using Rosetta

A detailed list of all changes can be found in the Livegrade Studio 6 changelog.

Output Colorspaces

Output Colorspaces

Easily Manage Color Pipelines With Multiple Outputs.

Livegrade’s Output Colorspaces let you inspect and manage looks depending on their output colorspaces for streamlined processes in color pipelines with multiple outputs (such as HDR/SDR dual monitoring).

Output colorspaces are detected automatically for all built-in LUT presets and output transforms, allowing clear overviews for multi-monitoring pipelines and automated colorspace-dependent configuration of the video scopes.

Choose the appropriate output colorspace value for custom LUTs on import and benefit from automatic colorspace-tagging on LUT export for round-tripping with other Livegrade systems.


Sony VENICE 2 Remote Grading

Interactively Grade via ASC-CDL and Upload Looks as In-Camera LUT.

Livegrade integrates with the remote grading features of Sony VENICE 2 cameras.

You can configure the camera as interactive grading device to grade via ASC-CDL compliant grading nodes in real-time, or as non-interactive grading device to upload looks as User 3D LUT onto the camera. Furthermore, you can benefit from a streamlined color workflow using automatic look metadata in recorded camera files.

Virtual Production Integrations

Virtual Production Integrations

Interactively Grade Content on Led Walls and Fine-Tune Image Processing.

Livegrade Studio has built-in integration for Unreal Engine and Brompton Tessera processors, extending your established digital imaging workflow to virtual production environments.

By connecting to an Unreal Engine system via the Pomfort Virtual LUT Box plugin, you can support the image composition of virtual production shoots with high-quality real-time looks. Additionally, you can modify the color balance of your LED systems by controlling the 3D LUT in connected Brompton Tessera processors. Finally, a Knee Curve grading node lets you equalize the appearance of foreground scene and video wall in no time with simple contrast curve adjustments.
