Hi...I'm editing a low budget short that was all shot with a #1 Tiffen Pro Mist filter. They ran out of money at the end and couldn't afford to rent the matte box and filter for the last scene and I was wondering if there is any software that can make images look like the Promist ie: raising the blacks slightly, very slight soft look and a bit of a glow on any bright highlights. It is RED footage and I'm transcoding with REDcine X. I tried playing around with the Alchemy group but it didn't look the same. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Tiffen has software that emulates their filters.

Otherwise, you could try just pulling a luminance key and blurring the highlights only and then overlaying this back over a sharp layer.
