Quantel’s Pablo Rio Races Ahead With Eighth New Software Release in Just One Year

Quantel has released another major software upgrade for its Pablo Rio high quality color and finishing software and Pablo PA workflow assist software – the eighth in the space of just one year. The new release focuses on integration into all post pipelines, adding Apple ProRes 422 import and export, enhanced Avid conform and many more useful features and facilities. It also adds support for yet more file formats, including 4K XAVC export as well as support for the latest RED Cameras.

Apple ProRes 422 support includes encoding to ProRes 4444, ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (LT) and ProRes 422 (Proxy).

The new software also supports conform of Avid DVE metadata. This means that any DVE picture flips, flops, resizes, rotations etc made during Avid offline will now transfer directly into Pablo Rio and Pablo PA, freeing up valuable time in the online session to do more or to produce a more polished deliverable.

The inclusion of the latest RED V5.0 SDK also enables support for DRAGONcolor and REDgamma4.

The release includes many other new features which add capability, simplify operation and speed everyday tasks, including: Mocha Tracker DVE Homography – the ability to track an object and pin the tracking data onto a shape that is changing over time; Blur normalization – automatically taking account of image resolution when applying softness or blur; and single button access to the Multi-layer timeline from the Neo Nano color panel.

“Pablo Rio continues to race ahead with yet more new developments that maintain its pre-eminent position as the color and finishing system of choice for 4K and beyond,” said Steve Owen, Quantel Marketing Director.
