I'd really like to have a set of custom transformations (contrast, saturation, etc) in redcine that would mimic, not only film, but specific film stocks.
It strikes me, that there is an objective way to do this, and I dont know if its been done before. I take 2 test images, one with my RED and one with 35mm film (say, 5245) of some test patterns with lots of different swatches, and bring them both into the computer and view them on the same monitor, and match my RED to the film. Save the transformations and call it "5245". Theoretically, all I have to do is apply that transformation to red footage and i'd get a pretty good approximation on 5245, right? Bright, saturated blues, warm colors, mild contrast.
Do the same thing with some color reversal, some bleach bypass, etc. I could make a whole library.
The problems, I think, would lie in the film scan. Regardless, I think this would be a cool experiment. Plus, with nikons I could shoot with the same lenses, and remove THAT subjectivity.
