SCRATCH Lab: Unleashing the Power of Advanced Dailies at MEWShop


Manhattan Edit Workshop, the authorized digital training destination, in cooperation with ASSIMILATE, INC., will present a FREE demo on the most comprehensive production dailies tool for digital workflows, SCRATCH Lab: Unleashing the Power of Advanced Dailies.

On April 23, 2013 you'll learn why SCRATCH Lab's power and reliability have been the heartbeat for the production dailies tool used by DITs in thousands of commercials, episodic TV shows, and feature films. NYC-based Tiffany Armour (Men in Black 3, The Carrie Diaries) will demonstrate how Lab helps you streamline your dailies process with support for the widest range of camera formats, flexible audio sync, world-class color-grading, and the power of GPU-accelerated background rendering to give you the utmost confidence to meet today's demanding schedules and shrinking budgets. You'll learn how SCRATCH Lab helps you efficiently organize and securely manage your data, as well as how you can collaborate on-set with the DP and director to experiment and create looks.

Sherif Sadek, an ASSIMILATE support engineer and SCRATCH expert, will also be on hand to discuss the latest tips and tricks of SCRATCH Lab.
