FilmConvert now with BMCC and GoPro Hero3

Wellington, New Zealand, April 8, 2013

Today sees the release of Rubber Monkey Software's latest update to its' FilmConvert digital film emulation tools. Extending the ability of filmmakers to deliver accurate, quick film looks for their projects, this release includes a significant new set of camera profiles. With specific support for the GoPro Hero3, and the Black Magic Cinema Camera, the new profiles also include additional custom picture styles for the Canon DSLR range of cameras.

“We're hugely excited to be able to give filmmakers support for cameras like the Black Magic Cinema Camera. FilmConvert complements these remarkable technologies, giving filmmakers more choice and flexibility to explore their creative vision.” said Lance Lones, head of research and development at Rubber Monkey Software, “The only curious problem that we experienced with the BMCC, was that everyone wanted to use it, so it was quite hard to keep in the lab for any length of time.”

“We were also hugely impressed with the simplicity and capability of the GoPro Hero3,” Lones continued, “even though that very same simplicity required us to invent an all new profiling methodology, as the camera would adjust itself underneath us.”
