16MM
OVERSCAN LOOK


INTRODUCTION

With this package, I have created an overscan-look that offers some freedoms that other packages do not offer. It was important to me to separate sprocket holes, dirty matte elements and edge codes. Only by separating those elements it is possible to correctly integrate halation and other effects. The halation only affects the image itself and edges of the matte, but excludes sprocket holes and edge codes. A separation of the sprocket holes also makes it possible to adjust gate weave and jitter individually, and also to integrate light leaks and grain correctly.

SPROCKET HOLES

PRESETS

Sprocket holes (Film perforations) are the holes placed in the film stock during manufacturing and used to advance the film. The perforation holes on 16mm are located on the frame line between two images. I’ve designed five presets with alpha channels for maximum flexibility.


EDGES

4 TYPES

I also designed 3 types of edges: thin, slim and thick.
Each in two versions. One slick edge style (A), and one more vibrant edge (B). Additionally, I also added some edges where the shape of the main rectangle is slightly twisted. (Corner-A / B / C)

– hole-edge-thin.mov (A & B)
– hole-edge-slim.mov (A & B)
– hole-edge-thick.mov (A & B)
– hole-edge-corner.mov (A, B, C)

These edges can be combined with the following “Edge Bleeding” templates to create custom digital sprocket holes.


EDGE BLEEDING

10 STYLES

I designed ten different “Edge Bleeding” overlays. Inspired by real 16mm scans. The alpha channel will allow you to mix and match any of the 10 different bleeding files, and you can stack these bleeding files above or below the “sprocket hole edge” files to create subtle or intense looking sprocket holes, depending on your liking. Each layer can be further modified using curves, lift gamma gain wheels, and so on.


EXAMPLE

CUSTOMIZED SPROCKET HOLES

Here is an example. Combining an “edge layer” with five different “edge bleeding” layer creates a new sprocket hole design that can be saved as “DNxHR.mov” file with an alpha channel. Every edge and bleeding style can be changed in color and modified with curves to increase or decrease the intensity.


EDGE CODES

KEYKODE

Edge codes, or KeyKode, are letters, numbers and symbols placed on 16mm film, appearing at regular intervals to allow for specific identification. Here are some references:

So far, I’ve designed seven different edge codes for this pack. DNxHR loop videos. These files can be completely modified. This image shows some unmodified and blurry/grainy modified examples:
