Sample images, chart comparisons, and node tree info below
CinePrint16 is a film emulation PowerGrade for Davinci Resolve. More than a LUT or a plug-in, CinePrint16 is a full node-based image-processing pipeline that allows colorists and cinematographers to recreate 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm celluloid film looks. The PowerGrade contains a variety of built-in looks and options, while also being fully customizable to suit the needs of any project.
UPDATE – JAN 2022
CinePrint16 V2 is now included in the download.
CinePrint16 V2 contains numerous incremental upgrades and improvements including more accurate halation, updated white balance color science, improved highlight response, and workflow efficiency improvements.
The PowerGrade is compatible with any camera through the use of Resolve’s Color Space Transform OFX. All cameras are converted to Arri LogC and Alexa Wide Gamut, graded in this space, and then output as Rec. 709.
All components of the grade are 100% native to Davinci Resolve. No additional plug-ins or resources required.
The PowerGrade is compatible with both the MacOS and Windows versions of Davinci Resolve.
FEATURES AND BUILT-IN LOOKS
The grade implements visual features of celluloid film such as halation, rich and nuanced saturation, subtractive color mixing, highlight rolloff, gate weave, grain, and dust. Every feature within the node tree is fully customizable.
Built-in looks include a Cineon negative telecine look, Kodak 2383 and Fuji 3513 print film looks, and a vintage 60’s film look. The looks can be further customized with adjustments to halation, subtractive color density, CIELAB color separation, and CIELAB color matrices.
POWERGRADES VS LUTS
CinePrint16 is more flexible and customizable compared to a LUT or LUT pack. LUTs, whether they are technical or creative, are singular, defined, and destructive transformations, meaning input data is clipped to a restricted range of output data, and the look is baked in, not adjustable.
As a PowerGrade, CinePrint16 is node-based and parametric, so non-destructive adjustments can be made to each individual aspect of a look according to taste or need.
