Dehancer OFX film emulation plugin

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys!

Dehancer https://www.dehancer.com/ is a film emulation plugin for Davinci Resolve, currently available for Mac users only. We working on Linux and Windows version at the moment.

For many years we are running a film laboratory in Moscow https://sreda.photo, where we sell, develop and print film, both for photo and movie. Last 8 years we spent developing a plugin that emulates the behaviour of a real film stock development. It's not the LUT, it's a much more complex set of tools based on precisely measured analogue processes.

Pro version includes

-Input camera profiles
-52 Film profiles
-Expand tool
-Print options
-CMY Color Head
-Film Grain
-Halation v2
-False Colors
-LUT Generator
-ACES support

For our friends from Cinematography.com, we offer a 10% discount promo code PROMO10 for any product in our store.

You can download a full version with watermark of our plugin on the website without registration.

If you are a professional colorist and would like to receive a two weeks full trial to check on a real-life project, please contact us by email marketing@dehancer.com

Watch the video to find out how the synergy of these variables can create a rich and sophisticated image.

Hello guys!

As you know, Dehancer was created based on the analog photography principles and we invest a lot of time and effort into the research and development, so that all our features and tools are as authentic as possible. Grain is one of these tools that required a profound understanding of how film works.

Film grain imitation usually comes down to one of these approaches:

  • Scanned grain overlay;
  • Grain generation.

In this video we'll take a look at each one of them and explain why Dehancer plugin allows to achieve more authentic results. Enjoy!

We're pleased to introduce our new film profile - Cinestill 800T!

Cinestill 800T is a modern photographic film based on the Kodak Vision 3 500T. To allow development with the standard C-41 process, this movie film is treated by removing the anti-halation layer and stabilizing the emulsion with a special solution. Because of the differences between the C-41 and the original ECN-II processes, Cinestill recommends to expose the modified film as ISO 800 (instead of 500).
Cinestill differs from the original, untreated film in grain, obvious halation, higher contrast, cool shadows, and red-orange colors in the midtones. The film is best suited for evening and night scenarios with point light sources in the scene. Cinestill 800T profile becomes especially expressive and authentic with Halation, Bloom, Grain and Vignette effects.
To get this new film profile, click the Update button within your Dehancer Pro, Lite or Photo Edition plugin. You can download Dehancer plugins for DaVinci Resolve on our website.

Hello everyone!

We just published a new video about the halation effect, where we explain what it is and why it's so important to use when imitating a film image. 

At the end of the video, we will demonstrate how this can be done using Dehancer plugin, but we believe that information about its nature will be useful to every photographer or videographer, not just for those interested in film emulation, for a couple of reasons:

•Halation is much more complex and doesn't only appear around the light sources.
•Halation can make skin tones more attractive and natural.

Hello everyone!

The final part of the video-course by Pavel Kosenko is out on our channel.

Color wheel is one of the most popular concepts when it comes to color harmony. It is believed that, on this wheel, colors are located in a special way. And if they balance each other out and add up to a neutral color, then they are harmonious.

That's fake news.

In this video we're debunking the color wheel myth, and share the tips and tricks to actually harmonise colors. Take notes.

Hello everyone!

Retro vibe, huge grain and very specific color imbalance. All these are the characteristics of Adox Color Implosion film. And trust us, you can achieve very similar analog spirit with Dehancer plugin (even if it’s shot on iPhone).

Watch this experiment by Pavel Kosenko to find out how, and get inspired to unleash your creativity.
