Faithful Print Film Emulations

Brendan Bellomo is an award-winning film and commercial Director that also works as a VFX Supervisor, having overseen over 3,000 VFX shots for film, television, and commercials.

In 2021 Bellomo founded InviziPro, the company behind InviziGrain – advanced film grain simulation plugin for DaVinci Resolve. According to Bellomo, InviziGrain doesn’t just simulate grain with overlays, it actually transforms your digital files into film.

InviziGrain achieves this by offering you control over 7 different features which help you achieve a true celluloid look. At the heart of InviziGrain, naturally, you will find faithful print film emulations in the form of precise 3D LUTs.

InviziGrain used fylm.ai Colour Match tool to build these 3D LUTs out of a match between real film scans and digital materials

Colour Match

Bellomo shared his experience working with fylm.ai Colour Match with us.

fylm.ai colour matching is phenomenal. The ability to match digital footage to analog film and capture the organic character of real celluloid in a LUT with just a few clicks is a game-changer. The cloud-based fylm.ai system is fast and accurate and makes it easy to create beautiful LUTs from reference stills, quickly match cameras, and leverage AI to add a whole new dimension to color grading.

To use fylm.ai Colour Match, one should first save a reference shot as a match. Before a shot can be saved as a Match it first needs to be correctly colour managed by selecting the appropriate ACES Input and Output Device Transforms as fylm.ai uses ACEScct internally to colour manage the workflow.

Your ACES Input Device Transform should match your source material and your ACES Output Device Transform should match your monitor. For example, if working with Alexa’s footage, your ACES Input Device Transform would be “Arri Alexa Log-C EI800”.

InviziGrain used high quality film scans as their reference shots hence, ADX10 and ADX16 were used as ACES Input Transforms.

Explore fylm.ai advanced features.

With features such as AI Colour Extract, AI Colour Match, AI Auto Correct, Subtractive Colour model, ACES Print Film Emulations and much more, fylm.ai makes colour grading a breeze.

By default, fylm.ai calculates 2 colour matching results using Correlative 1 Pure and Correlative 2 Pure algorithms. These colour matching algorithms are heavily biased toward colour transfer only, without affecting contrast or exposure of the source material.

By default, fylm.ai uses these two algorithms so that it can preserve your original exposure and contrast intent transferring mostly colour information from the reference image.

More options, more choices

If you need additional options, using the ‘More Options’ button will calculate eight additional results, each one offering a different colour matching algorithm. Each and every one of the colour matching algorithms can be manually tweaked for even more accurate results.

Specifically, you can control the following options:

  • Further Matching Iterations – The number of additional calculation passes the algorithm will do. Increases accuracy at the expense of additional calculation time. In some cases though, it is advisable not to use additional iterations as these may introduce artifacts.
  • Match Saturation – the amount by which the saturation of the reference shot will be matched
  • Match Exposure and Contrast – the amount by which the exposure and contrast of the reference shot will be matched
  • Amount – Overall intensity or strength of the generated look. You can think of it in terms of opacity as well.
