Hi, I’m Stefan Ringelschwandtner Welcome to MONONODES
REVERSE ENGINEERING THE GRADE
“Reverse engineering the grade” is a project where I collect stills from “behind the scenes” and compare those images side by side with scenes from the final movie. Furthermore, I try to match the grade using only 4 Nodes: Offset, Contrast, Saturation, Lift Gamma Gain. My goal is to get as close as possible to the final movie look, but at the same time I want to keep the node tree minimal and clean.
On my Blog I talk about observing Film Grain, recreating “orthochromatic film stock”, rebuilding the “Rec709 Kodak 2383 D55” LUT as a PowerGrade, talking about Halation, Gate Weave, Flickering, Glow, Film Damage and Colors in general.
Have fun discovering the site.
