Dailies. Versioning. Conform. Color. Finish.
The SCRATCH® digital workflow sets the industry standard. Again.
Are you an independent feature film-maker who needs a comprehensive, end-to-end post-production DI workflow with uncompromising quality? Or are you a artist who needs a dailies, conform and color-grading tool ideal for the unique requirements of episodic and spot television production? SCRATCH is so flexible and comprehensive it's actually been called a post house in a box. And ASSIMILATE was the first DI partner to natively support RED, so it’s no surprise that SCRATCH is the most mature, reliable tool you can buy for digital workflows. Period.
If you’re a DIT or video engineer creating production dailies for a feature film, or in a visual effects pipeline at a high-end VFX house, SCRATCH Lab is the workflow tool for you. SCRATCH Lab is the industry's first and only comprehensive end-to-end digital lab system designed to bring playback and review, advanced metadata handling, intuitive color grading, seamless integration with databases and compositing applications and wicked fast background rendering all into one incredibly cost effective tool.
SCRATCH is the real-time DI platform for post. The added RED 4K tools, 3D capability, and enhanced compositing and finishing tools give me and our team the ability to work at the highest creative levels within fluid, streamlined workflow. It’s almost a magical experience – we have all the needed DI tools at our fingertips to bring out the best in imagery, no matter the format or size of the project. We truly would not be where we are today – in a new 10,000 square foot studio, cranking out the work – without SCRATCH.
