For those of you who love old film and would love to emulate the old emulsions in your movie/corporate video etc., then FilmConvert is a great tool and they've just announced new camera support for the Canon EOS C100, and more!
FilmConvert for RedLogFilm, 6D, the brilliant C100, the venerable EX1, and more.
FilmConvert, the digital film emulation toolset from RubberMonkey Software has just been updated to include significant new support of an even wider variety of cameras.
“With the FilmConvert system relying on direct profiles of the color and exposure response of each type of camera, the current update is crucial to aid filmmakers in their quest for an accurate film emulation,” said Lance Lones, Head of Research and Development at RubberMonkey Software. “We've filled quite a few gaps in our tool set that have been requested by filmmakers. Significantly, this includes full support for Canon's C100, as well as REDlogFilm and REDgamma3 updates.”
In addition to the Red Digital Cinema camera updates with REDlogFilm and REDgamma3, this FilmConvert revision also includes direct support for Canon's 6D, the Canon XF300, the Canon C100, and the Sony EX1.
“We've also added in an older camera, Sony's CineAlta EX1, which is a brilliant workhorse that we thought deserved support, and which is still quite widely used. It was in fact one of the trickier cameras to profile owing to the vast number of options that Sony supports in its' signal processing path,” said Lones.
