At first, I dismissed Daylight as I thought it was only intended for dailies grading. Once I worked with it more, I realized it accomplished so much more than that. And when Filmlight released a free version of their Avid Baselight Editions Plugin (render only), I could see the potential of using it on my jobs. The majority of my sequences originate in Avid, and I wanted the flexibility reviewing with clients in Avid while grading in Daylight. Clients I work with have established workflows and staff that depend on Avid to deliver their projects. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to export an EDL and Quicktime out of Avid, slice it up and grade it in Daylight, generate the grade files (BLGs) associated with the clips, and link them back to the sequence in Avid. The result is a fully renderless workflow back to the Avid. Fully enabled versions of the software used in this tutorial are available: Avid Media Composer Filmlight Baselight Editions Filmlight Daylight * Note: thanks to Pepijn Klijs for noticing that "scale legal to full range" in the export window was on. It should be "keep at legal range"
