Sneak Peek: Colorway from The Foundry

The Foundry is just giving us a sneak peek at their newest software COLORWAY!  We don’t know very much, but they’re having a free live event online to reveal more about it. Here’s what they had to say:

“The work never stops at The Foundry and we have two brand new products due for delivery before the year is out. We announced NUKE STUDIO at NAB and last week revealed our teaser video for COLORWAY – an application that aids creativity and focuses the decision making process. We’ll be revealing much more in our live event on Thursday at 7:30pm BST.”
