A Plugin for DaVinci Resolve™ generates film grain based on frame content and embeds it directly to the native camera log. The result is a texture that is more realistic and closer to the look of real film grain.
Grain generated by the content of the frame
All existing grain simulations work on a principle of texture overlay of scanned or digital grain texture.
Grainlab generates grain based on the frame’s content, making its appearance closer to the real film grain.
Deep Blend with Digital Camera Negative.
Grainlab is designed to blend grain deep into the texture of the digital camera negative. The resulting image is behaving to film scans as it has texture applied before any color correction.
Select from 16mm 200 and 400 and 35mm 200 and 400 ISO textures.
Fine Tune Grain Appearance
Complicated algorithm controls have been simplified to only three base, body, and Sparkle. They are giving you the ability to fine-tune grain appearance and blend further.
All of the processing is GPU accelerated and real-time in HD and 4K.
Film Grain in age of streaming
The next most obvious step in successful film look emulation is the use of texture or film grain. In today’s age of streaming, using grain correctly can positively affect encoding codecs and lead to better image quality.
Using texture to improve image appearance seems to be counter-intuitive at first. Still, when done right, a grain blended deeply into a digital camera’s surface has anything but degrading effect.
