I've heard a bit about the grain reduction capabilities of the Spirit and DaVinci 2K.

The colorist who did the Uncompressed 1080p transfer on my last film mentioned it to me but I said no when he told me that the image would be a little softer.

The next film I'm shooting will be on 35mm, probably 200T and 500T, and the mood of the film calls for slick and "pretty" images.

Is the "Scream" grain reduction function worth using?

Any opinions or past experiences you'd like to share?

Thanks a lot.

I shot a movie on Super 16.. getting it transfered to HD-CAM SR using a Spirit Datacine and Da vinci...

I didnt know this feature existed, is it better than the grain reduction tools found in shake/toxic/flame ect ? Those are usually pretty bad IMO.. they either make the picture blurry or give it an annoying "paint by numbers" quality.
