In this video on the MasterGrade, you’ll learn about the Printer Lights shortcuts in the Flame 2019.2 Update.

For those of you who may not know, Printer Lights go back to the old photo-chemical days before digital colour.

They were measured in points and the idea was that you could add or subtract exact amounts of red, green and blue light in order to change the colour balance within a given shot.

With celluloid film, technicians used filtered red, green and blue light but now days, you perform the same operation digitally within an application.

This may be considered as a basic grading tool but it is very powerful because of the adjustment precision…

That is more accurate than using the mouse or a pen and tablet.
