FilmConvert has released a camera package for the iPhone 12 Pro for its popular software FilmConvert, FilmConvert Nitrate and CineMatch.
Mobile filmmaking has become part of the indie filmmaker’s DNA. Much like apps like FiLMiC Pro, it allows developers to take advantage of robust tools like manual focus and iris control, log recording, and more. FilmConvert and CineMatch are software that take the guesswork out of color matching video sources.
The company has now released a camera package for the Apple iPhone 12 Pro that allows filmmakers to match the footage from their smartphone to our favorite mirrorless footage. DSLRand cinema cameras.
FilmConvert has been around for quite a while and we’ve covered it extensively in the past. The original version has been updated to FilmConvert Nitrate with better tools, but the company continues to support both with the latest updates. The software allows you to quickly color-adjust videos by overlaying more than a dozen different footage emulations on your timeline.
With CineMatch you match the protocol profile of different camera sources. For example, suppose you are shooting a Sony S-Log3 with one camera and a Canon Log with another. CineMatch allows you to apply the S-Log3 profile to Canon Log footage, which emulates the Sony protocol for further classification. Not only does it create a great starting point for working with two different cameras, but you can also use it to completely change the profile of your footage. For example, when you are taking a picture Canon C300 Mark II but in the post do you prefer the look of the ARRI Alexa? Easy. Apply the ARRI Alexa picture profile and start rating.
Now that the iPhone Pro 12 camera package is available, you can theoretically customize the iPhone Pro 12 to work with ARRI, RED, Canon, Sony, and dozens of other camera profiles that FilmConvert makes available. Or at least pretty close. In fact, the company has already created a test to match the iPhone with ARRI. Listen:
Although the test is not perfect, you can still get fairly accurate results.
