Rubber Monkey has been busy updating Filmconvert, it’s digital film emulation tool, which alters the colours of digital video to closely replicate film stock. Today they announced support for the GoPro Hero3 and Blackmagic Cinema Camera.
We spoke to Lance Lones of Rubber Monkey who explained that creating the profile for the Hero3 was difficult. He told us that “even though it was in fact the simplest camera. For us, the simplicity worked against our tools, so we had to invent a whole new way of profiling a camera that changed underneath us as we profiled it”
I’m very curious to see what the results for these two cameras look like, having recently purchased both of them. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to try them soon.
Here’s the press release from Rubber Monkey:
