A FilmConvert GH5 profile has just been released for the popular color grading and film emulation plugin.
FilmConvert have just announced that the profile for the popular Panasonic GH5 is already available. According to their official communique, they have had the camera for a few days now, and have already put out the new profile so its ready to go by the time you get your hands on that new camera. As usual, it is available to download for free.
This new FilmConvert GH5 profile comes with settings for all the different picture profiles that the GH5 has to offer, and even includes a setting for VLog-L – the optional picture profile available for $100 from Panasonic that allows you to capture an extended dynamic range with a logarithmic gamma curve.
In case you are not familiar with FilmConvert, it is a plugin compatible with most popular NLEs in the market as well as a standalone software that allows you to easily match the characteristics of various picture profiles from different camera manufacturers to different film stock emulations. In addition to speeding up the grading process, FilmConvert also allows you to match different cameras more easily by allowing you to bring footage from different sources to the same film stock, giving you a ballpark starting point from where to tweak further with the included controls.
Although using dedicated tools will always be more flexible, giving your footage that “cinematic look” can take a lot of time and knowledge of colour correction and grading. There are many editors out there who don’t have that level of skill or the time required to achieve it. A tool like FilmConvert can prove to be the perfect middle ground for achieving decent-looking results, with the added benefit of offering a certain level of control over just slapping on a LUT.
