    Email 17 Shares For many of us, presets in our software are a great way to get started with processing our images, get an idea of where we might like to take an image or create a consistent look to a collection of images. While they can be extremely useful, the quality of many presets sold online is questionable. Really Nice Images have made a name for themselves by producing high quality presets that emulate the look of many classic film stocks.

    This is especially true of their most recent pack, All Films 5. I had the pleasure of test-driving All Films 5 for Lightroom back in and much of what is true about that pack stands for the Capture One version as well. If you are unfamiliar with what All Films 5 is, I recommend reading that review first. In addition, all the photographs here are one-click edits.

    I adjusted exposure, white balance and then clicked the preset for each of these. None have any further refinement of colour so you can see a close representation of what you will get by simply using All Films 5. How does All Films 5 work in Capture One? These allow a preset to completely take control of every aspect of the image processing pipeline and affect the way a raw file is interpreted.

    However, Capture One does not allow this and, thus, RNI had initially stated that it would be difficult to port the presets to Capture One while maintaining the level of quality they demanded. This works in a similar way to the existing camera profiles that Capture One has built-in. Still, RNI have managed to create a quality set of styles using these.

    Unfortunately, these two features cannot be implemented in Capture One. When it comes to fading, RNI has provided a similar feature by producing each style in four different strengths. While not as nuanced as the Lightroom method, it does provide us with a way to taper the effect of a given style.

    I have found myself looking at these values as weak, medium, strong and very strong, rather than their numerical equivalents. This helps me to judge how much the style will affect my images. You might be thinking that by including four separate versions of each style, that RNI have created a very large pack of styles. You would be right. The pack already includes over films, with everything from infrared to slide film included, and this needs to be multiplied by four and then doubled to include grainy and clean versions.

    Thankfully, RNI have organised these into folders by film type and then strength. This simplifies the process of finding the desired film somewhat, but I have still found that it can take a while to dig through.

    When it comes to highlight roll-off, this has to be handled by us now. Fujifilm specifics Capture One, necessarily, handles Fujifilm X-Trans files in a slightly different way to other cameras, and thus RNI came up against another hurdle with this.

    I have included some of the same images from my Lightroom All Films 5 Review here, so it might pay to open that in another tab so you can see the differences. There are also Fujifilm Film Simulation versions of the images in that post for comparison. Overall, I would say that the looks are similar between the two applications. As with most things in Capture One, the initial results can be a little too punchy for some tastes and may need to be toned back.

    Anything above that produced a much too contrasty and saturated image for my taste. While RNI recommends the use of Film Standard in order to get the best results from their styles, I have personally found that Film Extra Shadow provides a more natural-looking result in some cases.

    For example, colour negative films are known to be lower contrast than slide films. In conclusion RNI has taken on a mammoth task here and done quite well in creating a lot of pleasing styles.

    While not everyone is going to make use of the sheer volume of options here, there are certainly useful styles for everyone.

    RNI ‘Really Nice Images’ Review – and some wider thoughts on film simulation

    Presets can make for a great way to start your post-production and give your images a headstart before you even get into detailed post-production. All Films 5 offers a way to get your digital colours looking a bit more filmic from the get-go. Before we even begin looking at the presets available in this pack and how they affect images, one thing should be clear. This is a look at All Films 5 as what it is. What is All Films 5? All Films 5 is a collection of film-like presets that aim to bring a little bit of the analogue magic back to digitial photography.

    Two versions are available, Pro and Lite. The Lite version is a smaller selection of presets from the Pro version. Most of what is omitted are the variations on the main films, but I often find that those are the ones I like best!

    Overall, the pack is broken up into five main categories, black and white films, instant films, negative films, slide films, and vintage films. These all have clean and grainy options, which gives you plenty of one-click ways to start your images off on the right foot in Lightroom.

    How does All Films 5 Work? It also allows them to be synced to Lightroom mobile and used on the go! Fujifilm Equivalents One of the things that interested me most when RNI asked me to test their new pack was actually how it would stack up to my beloved Fujifilm Film Simulations. So, I wanted to see if there would be any benefit to using the similar options available in All Films 5. These are just three of the Superia options included with All Films 5, but I feel like they all contain elements of what I love about the Superia stock.

    The faded blues are there, the shifted greens, the gorgeous contrast and skin times. There are definitely some good options. I always felt it looked more like a high contrast negative film than a positive film.

    Be the judge for yourself, but I feel like the RNI emulations of both films here give a much greater feeling of looking at a slide on a light table. The contrast and colours are much more vibrant for both films without blowing out highlights or washing out the brighter tones. Neither is objectively better or worse, but it is certainly nice to have options!

    Fading One of the interesting features enabled by using the camera profile approach is the ability to fade the preset between 0 and per cent strength. As a simple example, I have included a shot with All Films 5 Superia set to both and on the amount slider. This shows the subtlety that is possible with this system.

    The major differences here are in the greens, but small shifts are also visible in the oranges. In Conclusion While this pack, like all preset packs, is not for everyone, it does offer some great starting places for developing your Fujifilm raw files. Unlike many other offerings, the All Films 5 presets are subtle and nuanced. They operate at the raw level, which means they work well for all camera models and will give similar results across brands in a single click.

    I loved being able to fade back the strength of the presets, especially with the instant films which can get overbaked really quickly. Though I loved the extensive collection of presets available in All Films 5, I would have liked to see a couple of additional black and white films like Acros or TMax P and perhaps a few more off-beat colour negative films. These are small gripes, however, as the pack has a style for nearly every image you might want to process.
