The scenes in the caves from Unification still look grainy... Might be a work in progress though, the rest looks amazing...
I'm afraid that's just what 500 ASA speed film looked like under those lighting conditions back then. Not much CBS-D can do other than crush the blacks (losing detail in the shadows), digitally noise reduce it (losing detail all over the image) or leave it alone. If you look closely at the trailer (even with YouTube compression) you'll notice a fairly consistent amount of grain in the dark areas of every shot -- it's just that the cave scene is intentionally under lit with a lot of shadows, so it's more apparent.
I see. Thanks for the answer! In any case, commendable work!
