The good folks at CineGrain have sent us a set of their film grain effects for review, but we thought we'd give you a taste of what they can do before we have the review in a few weeks.

  2. wow! it’s an exciting time to be an indie filmmaker. downloading their sample clips now

  3. Bought the drive on Friday, already got it. Looks amazing, the perfect Mojo

  4. Yesterday Color Grading Central released an update to their CineLook plugin for FCPX that allows you to add real 35mm film grain to your footage, from within the application (no need to composite footage in the timeline). It’s pretty slick, and you can either get the stand-alone plugin for $69 or a combined plugin that adds filmic looks controls (vignette, 2.35:1 masking, etc) for $99.

    I’ve posted a review with some sample footage here:
