Day for Night


Grades a shot to look like it was shot at night. Very useful if you need to shoot during the day. Controls include an artificial horizon and fine tuning of the near and far areas of the shot.

Day for night grading is most effective when used on overcast shots, or where the sky and shadows are not visible. A visible sun, clear, distinct clouds in the sky and deep shadows will break the illusion.
