Colourlab Ai just released a v1.1 update for its artificial intelligence based color correction tool. This update includes several new key features and improvements, including direct integration of the Look Designer plug-in for DaVinci Resolve, a new Frames of Interest tool, and support for Apple's M1 computers. Let's take a closer look!
If you are new to Colourlab Ai, this software allows you to color-match your footage based on the appearance of a reference image or a graduated clip, and also easily adjust the color image between different cameras. We already had the opportunity to learn more about this color grading tool with CEO Dado Valentic in an exclusive interview that you can watch here.
Colourlab Ai is promising software that was launched in November 2020 during a "beta test period". The team has worked hard in the meantime, collecting feedback from users, to refine and improve Colourlab Ai in version 1.1, which is currently available.

Colourlab Ai v1.1 – What's new?
The Colourlab Ai team has invested a lot of energy in bringing new and improved features to this version 1.1. For DaVinci Resolve users, you now have a direct integration of the Look Designer plug-in into Resolve. According to Colourlab Ai:
This plugin combines revolutionary subtractive color processing with film negative and substrate emulation that allows users to create original show looks in a color pipeline that truly emulates the appearance of celluloid. The Look Designer plug-in is well established in high-end post-production and, with Colourlab Ai, is now also available to a larger number of filmmakers.

There is also now another AI-based feature called "Frames of Interest". This tool shows you the lightest or darkest images within a shot and the closest and most dissimilar colors for evaluation reference. This feature can be useful for speeding up your workflow and quickly seeing the things that you need to tweak to make your grade more consistent.
On the improvement side, Colourlab Ai v1.1 is now natively supported on Apple's latest M1 Macs, and offers color-controlled support for iPhone 12 Dolby HDR and footage captured in the FiLMic Pro iOS app.
Last but not least, there are some other improvements in Colourlab Ai v1.1:
- Support for tangent control surfaces.
- Gamut limit controls.
- Enhanced color-managed workflow for DaVinci Resolve 17.
- Avid AAF import.
- New look presets library created in collaboration with Lutify.me.
