Look Inspiration – ENR Processed Look

With Downloadable Footage and Nodes

I’m very excited to share this ENR Processed look with you guys.

Firstly because it’s a classic look and is so much fun to create and secondly because I can share the footage and DRX files with you!

If you are wondering what DRX files are they are basically a way of sharing my node graphs.

We will be taking this footage from here :


To Here



To load up my looks you will need two things.

Firstly the footage which has been so kindly supplied by Mixing Light member Kraig Winterbottom. You can see his work here.

Click HERE to download his amazing footage. Update: This footage is no longer available. Mixing Light is seeing if we can host the footage for download. If you want to be alerted, follow the comments and we’ll post in the comments if the footage becomes available again.


You will also need to grab the free Gorilla Grain sample here and have that in your media pool.

The grain choice is not important so please feel free to use your preferred grain

DRX Look Files

Last but not least download my node graphs below (accessible to active, logged-in members of the Insights Library). I have exported various stages of the grade from start to finish so you can try them all out.

    Thank you for the kind words. I love sharing looks and have many more coming soon!

  • Thanks Dan for again a super look and following up on my suggestion in sharing accompanying footage and drx files. Super Cool bro !!!!!
    And not to forget thanks Kraig for the material. !!!

  • Great breakdown, dan! Love the two variations of the look

  • Dan Moran

    Any requests for the next one? I’d love to do a few more looks on this shot. I was thinking maybe a nice sunrise next or something fun!

  • Dan Moran

    Thanks for the idea Glenn! It was a lot of fun building looks on this shot. Kraig is a hero!

  • go crazy 😉

  • Yeah the shot itself is amazing. Kraig’s the man

  • Marc Wielage

    Go for a Teal/Orange explanation. I think there’s enough conversation about this on the net that seeing some different methods would be very illuminating.

  • Okay, trying to be a client ….
    How about a hyper saturated “punchy” look that doesn’t look terrible on skin
    A yellow / blue look (not sure why but this game to mind
    More sunshine tips , as those were gold!
    Faking very recognizable times of day
    A “classical Renaissance” style grade, for a time period , painterly, and elegant
    A 60s high style look, aka Charles Angels , man from uncle, etc

  • Cheers dudes 🙂 Although I must share credit with the awesome DoP Karl Poyzer, who bossed this shoot. And of course to Dan who smashed the living hell out of this look! Made us look way more awesome than we are man – thanks 😉

  • Dan,

    I just join you here-what a treasure your site and all the insights!
    Im impressed with quality of info you’re providing here and now this look with DRX files-wow!

    Im fairly new to color grading, coming into it through my work with stills, photoshop all day long 🙂
    So, watching you work can at times be confusing (you jump back and forth around nodes so much 😀 ) but mostly very very inspiring 🙂
    Beginning to get an understanding of why and what for you do your adjustments in such a way-great stuff!

    i typically use grain all the time, in different amounts. BUT I drop in a timeline, so its very last thing in the pipe line.
    I guess question if its the same thing?

    another question or observation..
    Im glad to see you didnt use any LUT here(MBD->REC709), not cause i don’t like it, but just to see that you did primary correction yourself. I prefer it that way too, (though it can be not as easy and much more time consuming to me) and I often find people jump over that very important step way too fast IMO. So question here, on Cool commercial Look insight, you did use resolve default lut, was that due to time saving for tutorial or to get a certain result(tonality, contrast, what do i know?)

    thanks, hope its not to much blah 😀

  • I second the above request, would be lovely to see something in that style..
    And funny enough i thought of Man From U.N.C.L.E. too!

  • Footage is not available anymore
