Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A new upgrade of Mistika 10 is now available for Mistika Boutique and Ultima, providing Blackmagic RAW support, brand new color tools and other improvements that greatly enhance the creative process and improve color workflow productivity.

This release is already available in the Downloads section of your Online SGO Account.


New features:

  • BRAW Codec Support: The Blackmagic RAW codec is now supported on Mistika Boutique, both for Windows and macOS, and Mistika Ultima for Linux, fully supporting ACES workflow with BRAW.

          *The Blackmagic Design Film curve is not supported in this version.

  • New Hexagon Mixer tool: New Hexagon-shaped vectorscope added to the Fixed Vectors tab allows precise control of Hue and Saturation of the R, G, B, C, M and Y chrominance and hexagon sliders controlling the luminance. Every modification made in the Hexagon Mixer is also reflected in the Sliders to avoid any redundant operation. This functionality has been added to the Trackballs of Tangent Panels. Both of the hexagon mixer tools can also be displayed as a floating window and can be resized at users preferences.
  • New Channel Mixer: Another tool added in the Fixed Vectors tab, enabling ultimate control of the R, B, B channels values in R, B, B, C, M and Y chrominance. Every modification made in the Channel Mixer is being reflected in the Sliders as well. This functionality has been added to the Tangent Panels, being set on new banks of the Knobs. 
  • New Corner Pin in Comp3D: New tool added to the Comp3D node, allowing much easier and faster use of the Corner Pin to adjust the corners of an image to any background.
  • Mistika Workflows Watchfolder added to the Add To Render Queue options. Mistika Workflows is capable now to act as the main background render manager of Mistika Boutique. Users can now send RNDs from Mistika Boutique to a Watch Folder in Mistika Workflows, enabling to render the media directly with the Mistika Render node.


  • New Parameter added in the Import Media Options of the SetUp. The default framing mode can now be set in the “Default result size” option when importing media: Project, Input or Live.
  • Improved responsiveness of the Tangent when two or more scopes are opened.
  • New preset pivots added: New presets are added on the Pivot Scopes, for selecting automatically the Shadow, Midtone and Highlight pivots. Available and added in the Tangent panels.
  • New parameters added on the Color Grade Set-Up:
  • 1. Trackball Color Information: It can be decided whether to choose the RGB Values or a Color Box.
  • 2. The Saturation of the Color Grade GUI can be modified at user preferences.
  • New preset ranges added: New presets are added to the Ranges, for selecting automatically the Shadow, Midtone and Highlight ranges. Available and added to the Tangent panels.
  • Updated FFmpeg and SDK Nvidia libraries for Windows. The latest Nvidia drivers for your graphics card model must be updated for the Mp4 Nvidia codec to work properly.
  • New effects and Macros functionalities available in the Tangent Mapper application. Most used Macros are now assigned to the Framing menu of the Bt1 in Tangent Control Panels.

Fixed bugs & minor improvements:

Known issue:

  • Mistika Workflows does not render Title and Vector Paint effects included in Mistika Boutique’s RNDs.
  • Labeling with the White point in the Pivot scope of Primaries.
    When navigating between shots, the label shows 50, even though it may be another value. However, the feature works correctly regardless of the labelling issue.
  • Tangent: Out of the security purposes, the latest mapping used is not overwritten when a new version is installed. In order to obtain the latest improvements in the mapping, the selected mapping has to be changed to the “Default mapping”, locked in the Tangent Mapping software. We also recommend creating a New user with this latest new version update.
  • Tangent: sometimes a double tap is needed to properly navigate between the Color Grade modes.
  • DVO tools:

    Sapphire FX does not work when combined with DVO Tools
    DVO Clarity does not refresh new color gradings changes properly
    DVO Effects turn Alpha Channel Completely Black

    These three issues can be fixed with the following workaround:

    Go to configuration file:

    Windows: C:\ProgramData\Digital Vision\Ofx\dvo.config

    Linux: /opt/digitalvision/ofx/dvo.config

    Mac: /Library/Application Support/Digital Vision/Ofx/dvo.config

    Look for the parameter Allow Merge (m), remove the # before the m and set it to 1.

    The lines should look:

    # Allow merge - normally it would be enabled, but disabled until fully verified
