Mark L Just did my first offical Lustre session. Mixed resolutions, some film, some video, mixed bit depth, lots of timeline speedups, video in boxes and crops, six layers of stuff going on in short a real nightmare…What could go wrong!!??? and Lustre NAILED IT. Loaded it all in, graded it rendered it back to Smoke. NOT ONE SINGLE PROBLEM! AMAZING! Client is happy, I am relieved and management is happy. It looked better and saved me a ton of time if I had to do it in the Smoke. Thanks Cedric!
