The aggressive compression algorithms of streaming platforms destroy grain, which is why we don’t upload videos with grain to YouTube. Instead, we’re offering subscribers the opportunity to download clips, allowing you to view the picture as it was intended. We recommend throwing the movie on the timeline of your favorite NLE, setting the project to PQ HDR and watching on a calibrated external UHD monitor or TV. Grain cannot truly be appreciated on a mobile device, even one with a display as phenomenal as the Liquid Retina XDR mini-LED. If you do end up grading and uploading any of our footage to YouTube, please let us know – we’d love to see what you do with the clips. This is one of those rare instances where we reached for the remarkable Sony 135mm f/1.8 GM. Links to the downloads are in the video description.
