[Michael Gissing] "The article is notable for not mentioning the real reason. Resolve has totally dominated the grade market over the past six years. I got CS6 and looked at Speedgrade. It was not well implemented and the pace of developments at BM shot Resolve into a handy lead. Given the Resolve free or not much pricing, I think Adobe gave up long ago and did the sensible thing of improving Pr by importing the IP from Speedgrade with Lumetri grading.

As grading only needs to be good enough for many, it is a wise move to bury Speedgrade now that parts of it have migrated. Send to round tripping is rapidly becoming a thing of the past."

Agreed. Speedgrade quickly turned into a strip it for parts project because there's no point in trying to compete w/a app like Resolve when it's free.
