Free RedCine-X Film Look for Scarlet and Epic

I’ve finally decided on a look for our interior shots, for the feature i’m working on at the moment. A look for on-set preview and a good base for the style and look we’re after in post; inspired by the (in-)famous orange and teal look (Tony Scott and others). I hold back on the exaggerated orange skin look. Blacks are black, but low-midtones and shadows will appear teal. I personally don’t expose to the right (ETR) but expose skin @ around 50%, since we have controlled lighting on the set. If you shoot ETR or on maximum sensor exposure, adjust the Shadow and Mid Gamma Raise controls in RedCine-X, or adjust the FLUT value. The look uses three different curves for R,G and B. Touch the latter and you’re on your own…😉

The pictures below are not the best demo, but apply it to your own footage, play with it and feel invited to discuss and/or upload your variation on this theme.

I show you before and after pictures, but don’t forget that the source is a 4K raw image that can look like anything “before”. Click on the images for the full 4K picture, although with 80% JPG compression. You can download the RedCine look file below.

Before… 4K@24fps 35mm@f4 Redcolor-3 Redgamma-3

After… Orange and Teal. Exposed skin @50% avg, 60% max peak

You can download this RMD file for free here: http://mediatube.marvelsfilm.com/METERED_ORANGETEAL.RMD

You can use this file to import in RedCine-X Pro (download free from Red.com) or put it on your SSD and import it into your Scarlet-X or Epic camera.
Cheers!

    Very cool! Thanks for posting. One question though: how do I import the file into RedCine-X Pro?
