If you’re after Pro Res encoding on a Windows machine, or 4k for the price of 2k, then Assimilate Scratch 8 might have the solution that you need. In the short interview above Steve Bannerman describes what Scratch can do and his take on the future of the 4k, 6k, 8k (and more) race, to Josh Apter from MEW and AOTG.

Assimilate Scratch 8 and  Scratch LAB are the two main products from Assimilate Inc. and if you’ve ever wondered what the differences are between them, then this quote will set you straight.

“SCRATCH Lab is designed for production and VFX dailies review & comment, conform, primary colour correction, set looks, create LUTs and output multiple simultaneous deliverables. SCRATCH is a full end to end DI system that starts with dailies, and adds full secondary color correction, compositing, finishing and mastering features. It is a full DI house in a box.” – Assimilate

With 90-day free trial’s available of both systems t’s worth it to give Scratch a whirl for yourself. They’ve also recently announced MyAssimilate which is their collaborative cloud based solution, to allow greater flexibility for freelance artists to work remotely. Check out the brief animation below to understand how it all fits together.
