I was assisting a cinematographer. I have seen lighting assistants inserting 'cutted' diffusion filters(two numbers) into the scrim holder of a Tungsten Junior. Filters are of the same size of the lights front opening. I could see 'Garware' is printed on the side of the diffusion role.
From my understanding from this forum,
there won't be a softness to the light in the above setup because diffusion filter is of the same size of the light's opening, but there will be a decrease in the intensity.
Is my observations are correct?
Whats is a Garware?
Also he used Garware taped in the bandoor of 4 bank(4') Kinoflo. Apart of changing the 4 tubes into one source and decreasing the intensity, would there be any increase in softness of the light?
