OT: Is Speed Grade in line to get the ax?
on Jul 6, 2016 at 9:05:40 pm

Was looking at some posts in the other "A" company forum to find this of interest:

What does this mean for Premiere Pro users going forward? Could it be Adobe taking the same path Apple did five years ago? Are they now integrating part of a color grading software package into the editor side of the equation?

I'd guess with the level of metrics Adobe collects on their apps they surmised almost no one was using Speed Grade. And the ongoing dev costs weren't justified.

I think that Adobe and Ablackmagic (ha!) are both looking to eliminate round tripping by combine powerful color and editorial tools into a single set, but are approaching it from opposite ends.

BM is giving away a 95% fully functioning version of a an industry leading color grading application for free. Hard to compete with that. I love the way Adobe has integrated PPro and SG (It's what I always wanted when I used FCP and Color), but once the Lumetri Panel made an appearance in PPro (and SG didn't get a mention) I had a feeling SG wasn't long for this world.

Tangent Elements support is one of the best things in the latest release. Editing faster everyday.

I floated this question at NAB and was told that no decision had been made. SGCC is still in the line-up, but not updated in the latest round. The general explanation I received was that the landscape for color correction tools and SpeedGrade in particular has changed between the time Adobe acquired SG and now. Much of the SG technology has been integrated into Premiere Pro CC. I'm sure Adobe can track the usage and they probably don't see SG on the radar for any newer users. So, draw your own conclusions.

Back when Adobe bought IRIDAS in 2011, Resolve had no editorial toolset and Resolve Lite was still feature-limited to two color correction nodes.

Ditto.
