About CineLook 2
CineLook is popularly known as the software that “makes your video look like film.” The new hand painted custom user interface gives the user all the control they need to create a unique or standard film look. “We’ve made CineLook 2 even easier to use by including hundreds of presets that allow the editor to quickly apply a film-look to their work.” notes Kendall Anders, creative director of DigiEffects. “Our customers asked us to increase the rendering speed of CineLook, and we’ve done that with CineLook 2. It’s seriously faster. With the advent of dual-processors and CineLook 2, our customers will be very happy.”
CineLook 2 makes your video look like film 11 times faster than version 1 and is resolution independent - ready for hi-definition. Render times are even faster on Apple’s Macintosh G5 computer with the Nvidia graphics card. CineLook 2 incorporates FilmMotion seamlessly for 24 frames per second simulation in one step, eliminating the need to do a 3:2 Pulldown pass.
The CineLook 2 package has well over 100 presets and Film Stocks and allows the users to save their own. A gradient is built in to allow post-production addition of a filtered lens effect. CineLook 2 allows for color correction as well as StockMatch and ChromaMatch. Users now have a choice of color space for grain - HSV, RGB, CMYK and YUV Film Grain.
FilmDamage is part of the CineLook 2 package and allows the user to make modern video look like old damaged film with scratches, dust, hair, stains, gate weave and frame jitter. Other effects include Vignette, Duo, Tri and Quad-tone, Solarize, Acid Wash, Soft Focus and Bleach Bypass. CineLook 2's digital video production tools include Grain Reducer, Letterbox, Reduce DV Compression Banding and Reduce Interlace Flicker.

CineLook 2 for Macintosh OS X version 10.2.8 ships with a CD-ROM and a quick reference card for an estimated street price of US$895.
