FilmConvert has added a custom Cine support for the DJI Mavic 3 Cine to its growing list of camera profiles for both Nitrate and Cinematch. The profile will enable drone users to not only apply a cinematic film grain to their aerial footage but also improve the film look of the image while color grading.
The DJI Mavic 3 Cine captures 5.1K video at up to 50fps through its 20MP 4/3” image sensor, and a 24mm Hasselblad camera module. It is capable of capturing footage in ProRes 422 HQ and also DJI’s D-Log codec.
If you’re unfamiliar with how FilmConvert works, the plugin essentially overlays a set film grain over the video, giving it an emulsion-like appearance, and therefore, making it more cinematic. The suite can also create custom LUTs, which can be installed for shooting directly from the camera.
The film grain is duplicated from film emulsion scanned at 6K, allowing authentic Film Stock looks across a wide range of cameras and settings.
FilmConvert is able to analyze the camera sensor data and then applies their custom-made profiles during the matching and film look process.
Then, with the use of FilmConvert’s plugins, the image will be able to harness the most color latitude during the color grading process.
There are custom camera profiles, known as camera packs, available for download at the FilmConvert Nitrate website.
Users just go to the camera packs site, select the make and model of the camera (or drone in this case) and then select the operating system, and the nearest geographical region. Then the camera pack can be downloaded.
Cinematch, by contrast, enables a film production to take different camera footage and match them so that the overall emulsion and color information are consistent from camera to camera and scene to scene. Users must update their Cinematch software to enable the DJI Mavic 3 camera profile.
Individual plugins can also be downloaded for Adobe Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, or Final Cut Pro. And right now is a good time to pick them up, with FilmConvert’s annual 20% off summer sale, which can be applied to both Nitrate and ColorMatch.
FilmConvert and Cinematch also have free trials. For more details or to give it a try, visit FilmConvert.com.
