    This tutorial demonstrates how to cleanup 8bit DSLR footage, render to a 10Bit codec for more freedom during color grading and how to apply film grain. This workflow uses After Effects, Neat Video, Synthetic Aperture Color Finess, Colorista II and ProRes. You can adapt the workflow using your own tools and codecs, this technique is the one we used for all our examples. Applying film grain on top of ISO noise and compression macro blocking will only make your footage dirtier.* Use this workflow or something similar to cleanup your footage before applying any film grain. *If you are using the latest DSLRs like the Canon 5D MKIII or the new Nikons their encoders are a bit better than the older models and require less cleaning, sometimes none. Under-exposing any DSLRs will result in compression noise. Visit us at www.rgrain.com

      Recently, Stu Maschwitz sat down with a friend who wanted to learn about color and why his 7D stills look so much nicer than his video. He had some 7D stills and video from a food prep shoot. Stu helped him match the video to the stills and used almost every feature of CII. This is their story.

        I don't know if it's right to create art out of this experience, yet. I don't know what the time limit is. But I have created something that I hope people can appreciate. And art always helps. "Eternal Storm" was shot on location in Far Rockaway, Staten Island, Coney Island and Astoria about a week after Hurricane Sandy hit. The intent was simply to create something beautiful out of something disastrous. In a sense, it's a conceptual follow-up to my 2010 short film "Idiot with a Tripod." https://vimeo.com/18312392 Photographed with a Sony FS100 & Canon 7D Lenses were a mix of Zeiss and Nikon Edited with Premiere Pro CS6 Graded with Colorista II "Drug Police" appears courtesy of Moby.

            Testing out the raw hack from magic lantern. I graded the first half in After Effects and the second half in Lightroom. Next video I do I will transcode them into cinema dngs and grade them in resolve. When the film grade is added it doesn't look so great because of the online compression so if your trying to pixel peep download it instead. Shot with the Canon 70-200mm 2.8L II, Canon 50mm 1.4, and Canon 24mm 2.8 and a glidecam hd 4000.

                Just a little something I threw together. I shot this while my little sister was being photographed by my girlfriend. Had some pretty random shots while she was trying to get inside an old tool house. It's called hummingbird because that's how we call my little sis. canon 60d 50mm 1.8 Colorista II Final Cut pictures below by Jesy Almaguer for more info go to http://sugarflower-photography.blogspot.com/ for more amazing photographs www.marioverastegui.com www.twitter.com/marioverastegui www.twitter.com/jesyesy
