I am in the process of evaluating online systems, ideally something with 2k+ DI capabilities, proper luts etc.. and the ability to do RT Color Correction.
I want something like smoke/lustre combo, but I can't afford $500,000 worth of gear, and the RT desktop DI is getting very close to being a reality.
Pure CC's won't work for me like Speedgrade, since I need tools like repo, pan/scan, flip, flop etc..
I know a lot of people are content with the Scratch for film DI and CC, which can be a slower process, but what about broadcast? How are people working with Scratch on a SAN, so a motion graphics artist or compositor can work on DPX files that are read to be loaded into the Scratch?
Are people finding the Scratch a decent option to Lay off to tape?
Can you conform via a VTR with Scratch?
We are going to have one Apple Color/FCP Kona3 with Gluetools online station as well, so I know those systems can digitize DPX.
I'm just trying to get a feeling for people using a Scratch for Broadcast.
