Our friend Denver Riddle over at colorGradingCentral has come up with this FCPX plugin that will appeal to many of our HDSLR readers – it does a quick bang up job of creating a cinema look and feel for your DSLR video footage! Here’s what cineLook for HDSLRs will do for you:

Tired of your HDSLR footage looking like video? Add a clean film look to your HDSLR footage with this plugin for FCP X.

The plugin was purpose built based on years of experience color correcting HDSLR material and client request for a clean film like look.

It includes support for Technicolor Cinestyle and basic noise reduction.




Here’s what it does:

  • Easily imitate the color and look of film
  • Add “S” curve similar to Technicolor LUT for CineStyle
  • Basic noise reduction
  • Add 2.35:1 Letterboxing
  • Add film effects like grain and dust
  • Add customizable vignette

What do you think?

So, doesn’t cineLook seem useful? As a guy who’s never done any color grading (yet), this looks like it is one handy way to do that work without having to learn all the details… or is that just taking the easy way out?

I can’t wait to get my hands on cineLook for HDSLRs.
