“Lance Maurer and his team at Cinnafilm developed the Dark Energy Suite, a revolutionary texture management system I used on Act of ValorThe Last 3 Minutes and The Ticket. It vaporizes compression, noise and artifacts from HD footage and adds textured film grain to it. This is how I was able to seamlessly cut film and the Canon 5D MkII together on Act of Valor. Killing the HD compression and using the same grain quality between the 5D and film was the recipe for success.

This was originally only available through a tower of power suite, but now this lightning in a bottle is more affordable via an Adobe After Effects plugin that supports footage up to 2048×2048 resolution. Dark Energy processes and neutralizes HD noise and compression and adds textured film grain to HD footage via two powerful modules: Anti Matter and Matter.”
