    Posted by Pepijn Klijs on September 25, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    I am interested in buying a grain package to spice up some short films I’m grading that were shot on RED (2K). So far I am considering two options: Cinegrain (personal edition) and Crumblepop Grain35.

    Is anyone able to give me some advice on these options? Like one more then the other?

    I’ll be happy to hear you!

    yep, cinegrain is pretty great. If you want a cheaper solution then rgrain also makes some very decent stuff for 1080p finishes only. Also look into downloading the RGB stills directly from Nuke’s website and making your own grain based on the actual stocks. I’ve done it a number of times now and have gotten good results for VFX matches etc.

    I also like what Craig Herring and the guys at Rubber Monkey are doing with their application Film Convert.

    or find shake on some old machine and render out different kodak stock grain on what resolution you want.

    work like a charm.
