Ramón Verdugo, IRALTA VR

For me, there is a before and after the launch of Mistika VR and its integration to our day-to-day VR and VPX workflows. It is extremely fast and powerful and it has allowed us to speed up post processes and elevate the quality of optical flow stitching. The compatibility with the IMU metadata facilitates the stabilization of the shots literally in seconds and the optical flow, edge points and color management features offer a total control of the image that we need in order to deliver the best possible results. Another important thing that we highly appreciate is the constant and continued evolution and development of Mistika VR paired with SGO’s instant reply to the new VR cameras and rigs on the market.

Panicos Petrides, Fullmoon Productions

Flexibility might be the main reason that made me switch to Mistika Boutique as my main color and finishing system. Our work are mainly short and long feature movies, commercials, music video clips, and episodic. Mistika Boutique offers a unique Timespace, an infinite canvas and on the last episodic project was a true life-saver. It allowed us to perform multiple last-minute changes, re-conforming the new AAF, VFX conform and copy and match paste the tweaks across the new edit without any problems. Delivering a project from the infinite Timespace also makes your life easier, allowing you to create multiple deliverables with color space conversions from the same environment. Also, the color tools are exceptional! Superwhite control and Soft Clip are great to recover highlight details, Fixed Vectors are one of my favorite tools for fine-tuning the look and small changes in Luma and qualifier’s quick selection presets of certain colors and skin tones are simply a joy to work with. In addition, controlling Mistika with the Precision Panels is like playing piano in an orchestra of colors. Last but not least, the SGO Support Team is always there to help out and share the know-how!  I’m really happy to join the “Mistika way”!

Ilia Ivanov, Freelance Colorist

In the past year, Mistika Boutique has become my main color grading system and it is great for working on TV shows and films, as well as for smaller projects, such as music videos or commercials. What I like the most about it is the softness and accuracy of the color correction tools – Primaries, Fixed vectors and Qualifier have their own unique functionalities that help me with my everyday work, but the main discovery for me were the BANDS. They can be easily adjusted to any tonal range, gaining full control over the image, and the midtone contrast is like a magic wand for me. For me, Mistika Boutique shows its full potential when I am responsible for the final mastering of the project, offering me the ability to work with graphics, titles, and easily pasting the last-minute changes to different versions.
