Film Compression — new Dehancer tool

Great news for all Dehancer users!

The long-awaited update now covers most products and contains new tools and improvements:

  • Film Compression tool
  • Print Toning in Color Head tool
  • Histogram and Clipping Indication (iOS)
  • Exposure Clipping in Monitor tool (Dehancer OFX 6.2.0, Dehancer 1.1.0 for Final Cut Pro)
  • Presets redesigned (Dehancer 2.3.0 for Ps/LrC/C1/APh)
  • Built-in Factory Presets (Dehancer 2.3.0 for Ps/LrC/C1/APh)
  • Multiple fixes and optimisations

Film Compression tool emulates the film-like compressed tonal range. It lets you adjust the redistribution of the highlights. The resulting image looks more analogue and becomes more flexible for further manipulation with exposure, contrast, film/print profiles, etc.

Read the article about Film Compression tool

Print Toning is widely used in photography and movie production to give a special character or atmosphere. As a natural evolution of the CMY Color Head tool, it’s based on split printing through color filters, where you can control the color temperature separately within three equally quantised ranges – in shadows, midtones, and highlights.

Monitor tool (formerly False Colors) in OFX and FCP plugins now includes Clipping Indication which allows you to perfectly visualise critically underexposed and overexposed areas.

Dehancer OFX 5.3.0

We have made significant changes to the Film Grain tool:

1. The dependence of the optical resolution on the resolution of the timeline has been fixed. Now with a timeline size less than 4K the image no longer has a blurry look, and the maximum value of Film Resolution = 100 provides full detail of the source footage.

2. The distortion, which could slightly change the scale of the image and cause it to shift by a few pixels, has been fixed.

3. Added Negative / Positive processing mode switch.

An improved grain algorithm. The grain is more pronounced in the highlights and the image has a slightly higher microcontrast, which is more typical for negative films.

This old algorithm, slightly improved, reproduces a softer grain, which is less pronounced in the highlights and more typical for reversible positive films.

4. A new grain type and the corresponding Analogue / Digital mode switch has been added.

The ‘legacy’ type of grain. Requires more processing power.

Digital (Experimental)
Additional (new) type of high performance simplified grain. It can be useful for dithering tasks (for example, to eliminate the posterization of 8-bit videos from drones), as well as for low-resolution projects, rendering for Youtube, etc.

Compatibility of the plugin settings with different Dehancer OFX versions:

Starting from version 5.3, the default setting is Negative mode. To get the grain look as close as possible to older versions of the plugin (4.0 – 5.2), use Positive mode in combination with your existing grain settings.
