Hi,

I shot some footage on '79 Vision 500T stock in failing light. The first few shots of the scene are fine but an important two shot is very very grainy because if I remember rightly I was 3 - 4 stops under, wide open when I shot it.

What can I do?

Can I maybe add 'grain' (in a post house) somehow to the footage that's fine and then use a grain reduction filter or something for the footage that's really grainy?

Do I have any options apart from getting the editor to cut around the footage and not use the shot?

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

Ideally you should do this in the telecine suite with noise/grain reducer.
When under-exposing 3-4 stops you should not really try to grade for DAY but accept its night!
