Hi Dennis,

I look forward to following up on this after you've snooped around in Las Vegas.

If money was no issue, Baselight would be a top choice. But I'm not convinced the plug-in will be useful for serious grading under time-pressure. I haven't used it but I imagine having to select the clip and effect to tweak the parameters. Then select the next clip and the effect, and repeat. That would be the same as grading in FCP or Premiere right now. Except with maybe a better tool. The big advantage would be the portability of the preliminary grades done by the editor into a full Baselight setup. But if that's out of the budget, I don't see much use for the plug-in.

I have been working on Scratch for a couple of years now. I'm very happy with it, but if I was shopping around today, I'd give Resolve another close look - just because it's 'free' - or almost. That said, I tried Speedgrade a while ago and the interface wasn't for me. So even though I'll get Speedgrade with my CS6 I'm not about to ditch Scratch for it.

If Autodesk blends Lustre into Smoke - that might be the most complete NLE/grading/finishing combo, and one I'd seriously look into. But I don't see that happening, with Lustre part of Flame 2013. And I'd want to see a new MacPro or a port to Windows to get the needed power.

Anyway, it'll be fun to continue the discussion. Kind of wish I was there with you to unhinge bathroom doors and stroll the floor.
