Mistika Boutique now equipped with Dolby Vision and accessible to an even wider audience with Blackmagic Design DeckLink I/O support


SGO has pre-released a new version of  Mistika Boutique, its full-finishing solution for Windows and macOS, bringing users upgraded HDR workflows, expanded hardware support, exciting new features and many other enhancements.

Dolby Vision Support

Being officially certified for Dolby Vision color grading and mastering, Mistika Boutique now empowers creatives and post-production facilities with the dedicated HDR workflow required for the latest industry standards. “Dolby Vision certification gives users total confidence in Mistika Technology products and workflow solutions,” shared Geoff Mills, Managing Director at SGO. “With HDR becoming more accepted and a requirement as a final content deliverable, we are delighted to offer Mistika Boutique and Mistika Ultima customers future-proof solutions that help optimize demanding HDR workflows, allowing them to be ready for projects that come their way.”

Blackmagic Design DeckLink I/O & Precision Panel Support 

Another significant highlight of this latest version is newly integrated Blackmagic Design DeckLink I/O and Precision Panel support. “We were receiving truly overwhelming demand from the global community asking us to integrate Blackmagic DeckLink video boards ever since the launch of Mistika Boutique,” expressed Miguel Angel Doncel, CEO at SGO, adding that the implementation is now complete and went very smoothly due to the support received from Blackmagic Design. “Providing more hardware options will always be a commitment to our users, as it importantly contributes to the accessibility of Mistika Technology software solutions.”

Enhanced Render & Media Management 

Mistika Boutique users can now manage their Render workflows with greater efficiency due to external render farm integration.  With the new “Add to Render Queue” feature a batch of Mistika rnd files can be sent to an external render farm or passed to user-defined scripts, such as those created in Mistika Workflows. The Path Translation Tool provides improved media management and enables the moving of projects between different operating systems.

New Subtitle Interface with expanded Configuration Options

In addition, the latest release brings revised Subtitle Import Configuration. Subtitle files can now easily be dragged-and-dropped into Mistika timeline, with users being able to choose between different fonts, adjusting the size, word spacing and other text layout parameters.

Mistika users can now customize Tangent grading panels by their own preference with newly added Tangent Remap functionality.

Currently in Open Beta, further developments in this latest upgrade of Mistika Boutique include new RED SDK support with many other stability improvements made throughout the software. The complete list of the enhancements made to Mistika Boutique 8.10 Upgraded Open Beta can be found HERE.

20 August 2014, Beijing, China – Mistika and Mamba FX will be showcased at the SGO Booth 8B09 at BIRTV held at the CIEC in Beijing from 27 – 30 August.

Mistika’s diverse and versatile creative toolset is not restricted to 4K and is already able to provide for 8K post production pipelines. SGO will preview the new Mistika version 8.2 software at BIRTV which includes many new and unique features such as their in-context node based compositing capability and the incredible Spatial Isolation Toolset, which was unveiled for the first time at NAB in April this year.

Customers visiting the SGO booth 8B09 will witness Mistika’s stunning performance with mixed resolution raw camera files on the same timeline in real-time. Also on show will be Mistika’s next-generation colour finishing functionalities supporting the Precision Grading Panels. Other new features include support for Dolby Vision, improved ACES workflows, enhanced AAF support, Dolby Atmos DCP generation and support for an even wider range of image codecs such as Canon’s RMF, Sony’s XAVC and ProRes 4:4:4:4. To meet high customer demand for the new toolset, Mistika 8.2 will also be launched this August, prior to IBC, with a preview of the next version 8.4 being demonstrated at IBC.

Redefining VFX, Mamba FX provides unlimited compositing layers in a resolution-free, node-based environment, running on Windows, Linux and now also on Mac. Main headlines for Mamba FX 2.0 include the Layer Route Effect for working with multi-layer EXR files; a “Spatial Isolation Keyer” interfacing with metadata and the high-speed, “point cloud” shape tracker, enabling compositors to speedily track 2D roto-shapes to shots.

“SGO is delighted to attend BIRTV again this year in an exciting and vital market, and we continue to make our customer requirements a priority focus in the region and abroad, in order to provide the best creative technology that the industry demands.” says SGO’s CEO Miguel Angel Doncel.
