Why cineLook

Tired of your digital camera looking like video?  Instantly add a filmic look to your video!   I’ve created a purpose built Final Cut Pro X plugin for digital cameras that imitates the characteristics and look of film called cineLook™. And NOW featuring GORILLA GRAIN, film grain from real 35mm film scans. The plugin was developed based on years of working with digital cameras, my experience as a colorist and valuable user/client feedback.

Imitate the Color and Look of Film

With the cineLook™ plugin you can easily imitate the color and clean look of film including the gentle roll off of highlights, a key characteristic of film. Where video tends to clip the highlights harshly, film has gentle shoulder or rolloff. With the cineLook™ applied highlights have a gentle roll off and some detail is recovered.

Add “S” curve similar to Technicolor LUT for CineStyle

If you’re working with material shot with the Cinestyle picture style, there is a separate plugin where you can add an “S” curve that closely imitates the LUT developed by Technicolor.

Add GORILLA GRAIN from real 35mm film scans

Color Grading Central has entered into a unique partnership with GORILLA GRAIN to bring you authentic film grain to cineLook™. GORILLA GRAIN is tightly integrated into cineLook™ and features a wide variety of different film grains and adjustment for fine tune control of the film grain.

Add 2.35:1 Letterboxing

Add a 2.35:1 letterbox (cropping used) to get the look associated with anamorphic film. You also don’t need to worry about tilt positioning as the offset control allows you to adjust the video frame up or down for proper framing.

Add a customizable vignette

Let’s face it vignettes are cool! With this feature you can add a vignette to add depth and style to your imagery. The features are customizable to taste.
