  • Film print look

    I'm experimenting to make digital files look like my film stock scans.
    Left: Log- 709
    Right: print film conversion + just curves.

    Let know whatcha think.

    Small image probably you upload png and forum compress it. If you want keep original file upload image to mgur or imgbb image hosting
    Wonder what method did you use to emulate highlights orange mask glow?

      Thanks for the tip, I'll upload when I have a chance.

      About the halation or glow, I didn't nothing. Just the Log conversion to film print makes by itself. Sometimes happen others not. I'm still experimenting.
      Just to clarify, I'm not trying make the digital image looks better or worse, only I'm looking for film print look as starting point to color grading.

          Digital and film do have distinctive looks and surely do not look alike.

            Getting close.

            Giving a try over Pocket 4K.
            Alexa camera is much more easy for this process giving very 3D colors, however Pocket looks more flat
            If I want shot as if it were film, I have to lit the shadows because digital haven't great latitude in highlights. I grabbed this frame from youtube because have it a poor cinematography, just to see how far I can go.

            Final look:
            I have to do more tests, I wanna make a Lut in camera of this. Forgive the compression artifacts, from Raw not look so crap

              Wow! This thread is a success

              One more test with my study of emulating film print.
              In this case a crop of P4K raw footage.

                    Not to hijack, but I've been watching the stuff from the "New" Orson Wells films. I just love the film stocks from the early 70's01.JPG13.jpg

                      I love those frames.

                      However all these looks depends of many factors, starting with telecine or scan... and for ending, film works ETTR instead of digital.
                      I'm not looking for a particular look, I'm just looking for the film negative himself look. Then it can go more green, warm, teal&orange... or whatever you want. What I'm trying to say is that film have his own characteristic so far from digital ways to capture images.

                      If I got what I'm looking for, all the film looks you want , could be much more easy to achieve.
                      Here is an example from a screen grab of Log P4K. What I did here was just emulate the process of film develop and print, not HUE or color grading work.

                      Here another test from 709 footage (forgive the so low resolution)

                        Only film looks like film, but with most digital these days the resolution is good enough that you really need to add imperfections and grain to make it look like film.

                          We all know only film looks like film. Ok! But your stills look great! Will you share the workflow?

                            What kind of imperfections?

                              I beg to differ.
