Hi, I’m Stefan Ringelschwandtner
Welcome to MONONODES
“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 look, but at the same time I want to keep the node tree minimal and clean.
In my Blog I talk about observing Film Grain, Halation, Lens Characteristic. I share my thoughts on Courses, YouTube Channels, Codecs, and so on. The latest update is about “Why I build LUTs“.
Under “Tools” you will find useful things such as test charts, a blanking generator, a skin tone indicator LUT and much more.
Have fun discovering the site.
