Why don't you post a video of the elusive "film look" and then post a video you shot that you wish had the "film look"
Not that I know anything about film look, but try putting a master prime lens on the beast and then try shooting? maybe it'll fix your problem;)
Or just a 60 year old Angie... Or whatever glass you have and shoot and light for what you have...
Geographic and socio economic differences make your amen comment as clueless as your original unhelpful comment
This is not a site solely for professionals and maybe he is and shoots weddings, I say you get over yourself and add something useful
Or kindly find another thread to crap on... Owner operators, some of them first time camera owners, who ReDx thrives on, relies on
Forums like this for help - not to be insulted for your perceived lack of professionalism
To some extent... I stand by (the unfortunately) implied part of my comment, which is about understanding how photography and lenses work. There is tons of material out there that explains the effect on an exposure. And as that is pretty much physics, no plugin wherever can really fix that for you. Not anyone I have seen, at least.
Un derstanding the relation between shutter, framerate, aperture, contrast, the length of the lense and the size of the field the object is exposed to, is NOT a secret sauce given to some few gifted. It is pretty straightforeward, but is often mystisised to the extent that many don't bother to look into that.
Beyond that, it is kind of art and storytelling and personal preference.
But until you have some kind of concept about what affects the image (physically) in what way... It is rather hard to get beyond the surface.
Sorry if that was impertinent.
BUT I think it is AS silly to say that Magic Bullet makes a filmlook, as it is to suggest to get some masters and shoot constantly at 1.3
Things too often start on gear and metadata questions, instead of checking out how the lighting and exposure actually was done...
Someone obviously took a crap in Tim's oatmeal this morning.
- What is a filmic look? (yes, to some, a question is an answer)
- Lighting your set properly.
