Assimilate rolls out virtual production tools

Integrates colour grading and compositing for live workflows

Assimilate has revealed new integration of its software solutions for live colour grading and compositing in virtual production workflows.

The company announced that its Live Looks, Live Assist and Live FX solutions now support integration with Brompton Technology’s Tessera S8 and SX40 LED processors.

This integration is currently available in the new v9.4 releases of Live Looks and Live Assist, as well as the open beta of Live FX.

Users working in LED volumes can send 3D LUTs in near-real-time to Brompton’s Tessera S8 and SX40 LED video processors, powering live on-set colour grading on the LED screen.

Assimilate’s Live Looks and Live Assist tools work in tandem with real-time rendered environments from game engines such as Unreal Engine or Unity, according to the company.

Live Looks provides the live grading solution and Live Assist offers record and playback, including in multi-camera setups.

Live FX plays out plates and pre-rendered scenes and enables live on-set compositing for LED wall virtual productions, from previsualisation to final pixel in-camera VFX.

Assimilate CEO Jeff Edson said: “Virtual production workflows are complex and still a pioneering field with the highest requirements. We’re happy to have collaborated with Brompton to create an amazingly straightforward and powerful workflow for DITs as well as VP operators.

“As the traditional DIT role has evolved, they can now use Live Looks and Live Assist on-set with the 3D LUT control in Brompton’s LED video processors to easily handle live colour correction in the LED volume.

“Integrating remote control functionality for the Brompton LED video processors into Live FX further streamlines the process on-set. Together we are enabling the most efficient virtual production workflows at the highest levels.”
