If your camera or preferred profile is not included on the list above doesn’t mean your camera is not supported. The open 3D LUT format of ImpulZ allows for any kind of image manipulation before and after a specific LUT is applied. The generic LOG & Rec709 profiles are a mathmatically derived average of a large number of cameras and people have been using these same generic profiles exclusively with our highly popular OSIRIS LUTs – the results should speak for themselves!


ImpulZ is all about flexibility which is why we’ve included multiple output gamma and color response profiles for each individual film stock. These are not just your average constrast curves that re-map luminance values but the results of complex non-linear functions that distribute brightness and saturation across the tonal range similar to what you would see in a photographic lab-print. The richness of color that we associate with photochemical film is exactly what we’ve been missing from existing film emulations which is why we’ve developed an alternate approach. These are our babies!

Output Gamma / Color
Basic
Pro
Ultimate
Film Contrast
Film Print
VisionSpace
CINEON® LOG

 

Film Contrast: Non-linear distribution of image saturation with a film-like gamma curve.

Film Print: Industry standard Vision 2383 film print. Medium contrast/saturation print stock.

VisionSpace™: Our custom gamma response which is ideal for starting your grade. Just enough contrast to get you started in the right direction without blowing out highlights or shadows and the same non-linear saturation as our film contrast profiles.

Cineon® LOG: Industry standard Cineon LOG compound gamma (95-685). This output emulates the gamma response of the DPX scans from the film scanners (Hasselblad Flextight X5 & ArriScan 4k btw). Resulting negative emulations are compatible with all film print emulations that expect a true cineon curve as input and provide a perfect starting point for fully fledged color grading.

  Additional Conversion LUTs (Ultimate only):

  • Cineon to Vision 2383 (D50) FPE (Rec709) [medium contrast/saturation]
  • NEW: Cineon to Vision2383 (D60) FPE (Rec709) [same as D50 with different white point]
  • Cineon to Vision Premier 2393 (D55) FPE (Rec709) [more silver in emulsion – rich blacks/high sat]
  • Cineon to custom 35mm Fuji  FPE (Rec709) [color positive still film with custom print gamma]
  • Cineon to Film Contrast 01 [Non-linear saturation / print gamma – preserves negative colors]
  • Cineon to Film Contrast 02 [Bleach characteristics similar to profiles from another developer]
  • Cineon to VisionSpace

All conversions are optimized for Rec.709 2.2 viewing gamma while simulating DCI P3 white point (projected).

Kodak Vision3 500T 5219 negative emulation processed through a custom Fuji Print LUT with a 4k film grain overlay. Notice how the entire color palette is subtlely remapped and the final image looks nothing short of a 35mm scan with rich colors, beautifully smooth contrast and the image texture we associate with high-end productions.
