Going to shoot a Music-video next week and thinking about grain-reduction in telecine.

We'll shoot 7218 rated at 400asa or 320asa for indoors and 7205 rated at 200asa or 160asa for outdoors.

is the grain-reduction word doing it? never used it before... how much will it soften the picture?

Hi,

Most telecines will use noise & grain reduction as standard. I always ask to see the pictures without any first, so I can set the amount required myself.

If you need more than 3dB then something is wrong with the processing,exposure or telecine.

Noise reduction and grain reduction in telecine can work fine on some shots and not at all on others. There's always the option to do a de-grain in post, which is a more severe operation, i.e. grain averaging (like a morph) over the whole sequence. Both of these things work best on static images and not to well on traveling or moving ones (except for the noise reduction).
