Hollywood uses top notch Full HD and RED cameras. When you watch
clips of movies from “The Making Of” a movie, the picture is super
sharp. The final movie has a type of softness like Film and is a much
smoother picture and funner to watch.
I tried different filters in AE like Boris Looks but all they do is
give the picture some blur, contrast or sepia colors. I was wondering if
someone can guide me to how they get that movie look in Hollywood?
lower satation, reduce contrast – you can do it in any NLE.
Don’t reduce sharpness or undersample your clips (e.g. to 24p), unless you want to achieve a certain effect.
