I used my coffee break today to look into grain plates. Initially i just wanted to share which offers i found but i'm also interested in your experience. Do you use them yourselves? And if yes - which ones? How do you use them, how frequently, do clients ask you for re-graining, what's your personal taste and so on... Anyway here's what i found. First some free offers - as little there might be: Gorilla Grain offers a medium dirty Grain Plate in 720p and some burns in 1080 all encoded h264 (http://gorillagrain.com/features) HolyGrain gives away one 35mm dirty Grain Plate (http://holygrain.com/free-film-grain-download/) Vegasour has one free 720p download on vimeo(http://vegasaur.com/free-35mm-film-grain) VisionColor gives away a full package of different Grains, Burns, LightLeaks and Noise for just a facebook-like (http://vision-color.com/free-stuff/) Here are some offers i'd call affordable: HolyGrain offers a bundle of different 35, 16 and 8mm plates as well as some dirt for 49$. They've also got 4k scans for extra charge (http://holygrain.com/products/). Vegasour also has different bundles ranging from 30-50$ and one 4k scan (http://vegasaur.com/film-grain). The bundles by rgrain range from 50-100$. They also offer one 6k scan. (http://rgrain.com/buy/) GorillaGrain also offers different bundles. Their "super pack" goes for 99$ (http://gorillagrain.com/products-2) And there's of course filmconvert. They take a different approach. Instead of just scanning film and rendering out plates they sell plugins which are supposed to completely emulate certain film stocks. Sounds too good to be true and probably is but there are lots of fans out there and they just released a new OFX plugin for Resolve10. Costs 199$ (http://www.filmconvert.com/purchase/default.aspx) So finally the premium offers: CineGrain - huge package - supposedly very high quality. They've got an indie package for projects with budgets up to 100k for 500$ (http://cinegrain.com/indie/) - if you want to have the full package with the unlimited license you'll have to invest 3000$. Last one i've found is indieScans. The've got a 35mm, a 16mm and one 8mm pack for 1000$ each(http://www.indiescans.com/35mm-film-grain/). Let me know if i missed or confused something. Would be also nice if you could share your experience with the whole re-graining topic.
