Colourlab Ai Officially Launches

Color Intelligence has launched a new color grading system designed to improve the process of color correction by leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI).

After two months of private beta testing with 500 industry professionals and enterprise clients including Company 3, Harbor, HBO and Technicolor, Color Intelligence is releasing Colourlab Ai.

“We are so excited to release this tool to the market and help accelerate the process of color grading. This will free content creators to focus their creativity on the unlimited artistic possibilities of color. It’s time to fall in love with color again,” commented founder and color scientist Dado Valentic.

Colourlab Ai uses AI models trained specifically for cinematic content to automatically color match footage and suggest variations from a user graded reference clip. It can use a reference still from any source image. This enables creators to instantly match shots across an edited timeline or hours of unedited dailies in just seconds or minutes. Integrating into existing post-production pipelines “without disrupting already established ways of working”, the application uses a unique patent-pending method to match clips using the same familiar controls colorists already use. Colourlab Ai is integrated with DaVinci Resolve and applications like Adobe Premiere, Avid, Baselight and Final Cut Pro.

It can work in SDR and output HDR content that displays correctly on Apple HDR-supported mobile devices as well as both professional and consumer HDR displays. The color managed pipeline features popular camera profiles that allow multiple camera types to be effortlessly matched in a single step.

“Colourlab Ai is the type of AI-powered workflow tool that reminds me why I love what I do. By significantly speeding up the tedious, but necessary process of matching clips, it allows me to spend more time with footage in the creative phase; reconnecting with that process has been a dream,” says Roberto Negron, Senior Colorist at Axis Studios. “Colourlab Ai truly is a game-changer for the industry.”
