Keeping It In The Box

Back in the good old days when I was grading footage from a telecine and everyone had lots of money for everything doing the final conform and reframing in the grade was never even a consideration.

There were rooms full of Autodesk Flames and Smokes that would do all the resizing, flipping and flopping.

Us colourists could focus on one thing.


These days we need to make the pictures look as amazing as possible but also make time to do the final conform on a lot of projects.

This is normally down to budgetary reasons but is becoming more and more popular every month.

      Any chance I can get the download link for this?

    • Jack Li

      Can you make the download button alive pls? The online playback is so blurred.

    • Pat Inhofer

      We’ve fixed the download link. RE: Blurry Playback – You can always use the controls at the bottom of the streaming player to force playback at a video’s highest resolution. Within 10 seconds you should see the change.
