    I while back I saw a 3rd party software that would read the r3d files and you would be able to choose a film stock profile. The plug in was about 400 bucks, I am trying to find the name of it again if someone remembers the app please let me know.

    Actually my favorite film look application is made by Kodak.

    It's called film.

    In my opinion everything else looks like something graded to look like it was shot on film, thus obfuscating its native advantages and never really attaining the look of film.

    But hey ... if it meets your creative vision. ;)

    Thanks that is the software I was looking for. I wanted to pass it along to another director as he was looking at another software that comes with multiple grains.

    Be aware that grain alone is not a "film look." To me, it also implies a specific gamma curve, how the medium deals with the "toe" of the signal, how it rolls off the highlights, what the motion artifacts are, and many other factors. Grain is just one part of it.

    Cinegrain is cool if you want to make it look 8mm-ish and stuff for which we used it a couple of times. but it doesnt really do anything like the density based grain algorithm. sounds great to me, as I've failed to reproduce that "effect" with cinegrain footage so far.
    Check out our short movie "Halbschlaf" (with subs) on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/39393474
    Shot on RED, of course ;-)

    CineGrain's being used over the new Total Recall among many other big budget hollywood stuff. Its main purpose is to add subtle grain texture to properly colored digital footage. It's not really designed for the 8mm stuff. It's a tool for post production and in the hands of a professional colorist is very versatile.

    Not to diminish Speedgrade, but is there any way that this can be used in Resolve? If it is limited to Speedgrade, I think you have norrowed your nich. But, on the other hand, it is adaptable to other grading systems, then your consumer base is expanded 10 folds. Do you offer such LUT conversions for Resolve/HDLink Pro?

    Please advise,

    Hey Luis

    Speedgrade is awesome but we realize there are color grading solutions. So you will be glad to know that we will be supporting Resolve very soon. Like us on Facebook at Looklabs and you will be the first to know. We will also be supporting Lustre and Baselight by September. Thanks for your interest!!!

    I will be posting some real world before and after examples tomorrow...check them out at looklabs.net
