Filmworkers Club upgrades da Vinci Splice systems
Chicago-based post-production house Filmworkers Club has upgraded two of its facilities with three da Vinci Splice post-production systems, which enable its existing da Vinci 2K Plus systems to be used for nonlinear, in-context color grading.
Because Splice accesses digital images directly from SAN, DAS or internal storage, it eliminates the need to search rolls of film or to cue up video to find the right shot. The 2K user interface synchronizes and controls Splice so it can move instantly to any scene or rearrange shots on the timeline, while also adding alternative shots.
Built with the same Transformer II technology as the da Vinci Resolve digital mastering suite, Splice shares Resolve's basic conform and I/O features. Its session and operational compatibility with Resolve accelerates film, TV and commercial workflows. Splice is also available with object tracking and can handle 4K files.
