Solving Film Emulation with FilmConvert
Today our guest is Sam Wiles, a Color Engineer at FilmConvert. Since the very beginning of digital cinema, people have been trying to get video to look like film, and that’s a very difficult thing to get right, at least at a professional level. It’s not a matter of applying a color filter, response curve, dynamic range, highlight roll-off, grain, and so many other traits of a film image have to be taken into consideration too. FilmConvert is trying to simplify this process by designing film looks tailored to specific digital sensors and log profiles, which entails a ton of testing on various cameras and film stocks. Sam and Ryan talk about how this testing contributes to a more accurate film image and how CineMatch, FilmConvert’s new project that more easily matches color between pieces of footage shot on different cameras.
