Reverator’s Film Lab Processing, Textures and Details Enhancer, Aperture Corrector, Texture Pitch, Resizer, HDR Compensation, Highlight and Shadow Soft Clips all converge into a multi-GPU accelerated Single-Node Cinematic Film Looks OFX Plugin.

Reverator’s Film grain emulates ISOs and EIs from slow to fast film stocks. Grain Size, Granularity, Softness, Shape, Density, Strength, Orientation, and Motion can be independently set on each color channel at any resolution, making your grains truly resolution independent. And if you’re unsure as to how much Film grain to add, Reverator generates the smallest possible grain to be just noticeably different at any resolution.

Using off-the-shelf Resizing, pixel averaging dramatically compromises image Textures and Details. Not so through Reverator’s acclaimed Resizer, used by VFX Studios worldwide, and now – for the first time – available as a plugin. A single global slider fades, preserves, or enhances Textures and Details, or Details only. Optionally, Reverator’s Resizer can generate the smallest possible cinematic-quality grain minimally detectable at any resolution, reinforcing the presence of finer details and greater depths in outputs. Reverator’s Texture Pitch controls the amount of local de-emphasis or emphasis of Textures in each one of six spectrum bands.

Reverator works in over 45 Camera and workspace gamuts. For best outcomes, Reverator’s Log, Gamma, Hybrid Log-Gamma, and Linear processing is LUT-free. At 32-bit GPU floats per channel, Log clips can be processed in Linear, and Linear clips processed in Log. Through highlight and shadow soft clips, hard clips roll into soft clips.
