    Bruno Delbonnel does it in post. No to troll, but I was in the same boat and that really opened up my mind to the world of digital softening. Look at Inside Lewyn Davis.

    I use both and I find the Tiffen Black Satin to give a little more of an overall soft diffused glow than the HBM.
    Whether or not you would want that on your Vampire themed production depends on the look you want. I don't think they are the same.
    I think the Tiffen Black Satin will give a little more of a "dreamy" soft look than the HBM.

    The software plugin called "TIFFEN DFX" does an outstanding job of digitally recreating the effect of ALL of their filters and at EVERY strength.
    I have it. I love it.
    ...yet I still prefer to shoot with the HBM 1/8 and 1/4 in the lenses. I guess it's just my favorite filter.

    This comes as a surprise. A lot of the films of his I'm familiar with have his trademark glow.

    In the world where you don't get the opportunity to control your image in post as most indies are, I like to make the choices in camera. However digitally can have the flexibility and also avoid the image flaws that come with double or triple stacking glass in front of the camera. Ghosting, flaring, and halation really are troubling using diffusion in camera but if you and your AC work and acknowledge it shouldn't need to do it in post I believe. There's a difference in contrast and control that comes with it.

    Tiffen has outsourced those digital filters to a company called DFT and they are also available in an OFX version for Resolve now. But they are 595 $.

    I have used the 1/4 Black Pro Mist and i really enjoy it. It shows up when you need it and doesn't really look too strong when the light is falling a certain way. (i'm using it with Rokinon Cine DS lenses (77mm) and on Vintage Russian lenses (58mm) with my Ursa Mini Pro)

    I know each has their different looks and purposes but which one do you think you would purchase for all around type work. Just looking for peoples opinions and what not, thanks.
    I do find the `1/8th black pro mist to be much stronger then I thought it would be. Much more noticeable then 1/8 Hollywood Black Magic which I often use.
