RNI Releases 39 Film Styles with ‘All Film 4’ Lite Pack for Capture One

By Justin Heyes on July 27th 2017

Going beyond the detail, sharpness, and exact color representation of digital photography; the certain allure of film can be unquantifiable. The allure of the bright and vivid colors of Velvia, beautiful skin tones of Portra, and the pastel-like Pro 400H, continue to draw photographers, both digital and analog alike.

Each stock had its own unite fingerprint that it left on our images. Either from our memories stored in shoeboxes and albums or the look of iconic images, film romanticizes our images with a delicate balance of color and tone, expressive power that digital lacks (without help).

There are countless presets for Adobe-branded products that promise the film-like look, we even have a few included in our Preset system; but those who venture outside of the walled-garden can be left wanting. A few weeks back Capture One released its own line of presets called ‘Styles’, and now the people at RNI (Really Nice Images) have released their All Film 4 Lite pack for Capture One.

Styles in Capture One are more closely aligned to presets as you may be used to in Lightroom. In Capture One a preset is a saved pre-made adjustment that pertains to only one tool and applied by that tool, whereas a Style is a pre-made adjustment for one or many tools.

Based on the color science of actual film samples, the London-based company has reworked their popular All Film 4 pack for Lightroom “to produce a beautiful and accurate match in Capture One”.

Styles Include:

  • Fuji Pro 400H
  • Fuji Velvia 50
  • Kodachrome 1958
  • Kodak Gold 200
  • Kodak Portra 160C

Using the styles is very straight forward and doesn’t require a Toolkit like Lightroom. The styles can be applied an individual image, batch process, and even apply them while shooting tethered.

The $59 pack contains 39 styles in both a clean and grainy variant with popular stocks, you can get them here. There is no word yet when the “Pro” version will be available.

    Wonderful. I can’t help but wonder how these different film emulations are different from, say, those from http://1styles.pro? I am thrilled to see the Capture One market for styles to finally pick up though

      It boils down to these are made be RNI and the other are made by 1Styles Pro, similar to how RNI makes Lightroom presets that can be compared against VSCO. 

      It is a matter of personal preference. I have used 1Styles and I found them a little too punchy. From the images provided by RNI, these ‘styles’ looks a bit more subdued and natural.

      The difference is hardly quantifiable. This is RNI, an acronym for good taste in the universe of presets and filters, all said.
