One month ago we posted about Rgrain, a new product that gives you the ability to add film grain to your digital footage. You can read the original article with video examples and full details here: Rgrain – Film grain clips to make Digital Video look like Film.
Rgrain has recently expanded its offerings by adding new 16mm and Super 8mm packages. They have also added a new 35mm “Ultra Fine” plate to their regular package for an even more subtle look.
New “Complete Pack” Bundle - Coupon Code
The new 16mm and Super 8mm packages are also available in a “Complete Pack” bundle that includes every Rgrain packages plus three “Micro Dirt” loops for those who want to add more damage to their videos.
The developer has provided a coupon code (for limited time) to get $10 off when purchasing the Complete Pack. In our opinion, it’s a great option to get ALL current packages at a very low price. Check it at www.rgrain.com/products. The coupon is: 10S83750
Because Rgrain plates are digitally created they have a very nice uniform quality and still add the natural and organic feel of real film grain. This may be a very big advantage over scanned stock film options.
It is important to mention that Rgrain does carry some plates with a lot of character specifically within the Super 8mm and 16mm packages.
Why Adding Film Grain to Digital Footage?
This is a very important point that not everyone clearly understand. Many HDSLR shooters confuse grain with noise, but in fact they’re completely different.
Adding film grain can do a lot more than just make your videos look like film. It also helps with dithering smooth gradients improving the quality of your videos on video sharing websites like Vimeo. It also helps removing the sharp digital video look by adding a subtle and organic feel to your video projects.
Rgrain made this nice video demonstration to show some of those benefits as well as a comparison between ISO noise and film grain with Rgrain. There are also color graded examples at the end of the video.
