Cinegel filters are meticulously manufactured on a heat-resistant base polymer utilizing a patented deep-dyed technology.

On-line computerized colorimetry continuously monitors color and density against strict standards, thus assuring a reliable and consistent product.

Lighting fixtures for film and video production usually function by means of a reflector that gathers the light from a point source and focuses it through a lens. The result is a beam that has a high level of intensity or "punch".

But these fixtures also present a number of drawbacks: the projected beam field may be uneven in intensity, the beam edge may be too harsh, or the hard shadows created by the beam may be objectionable or unflattering to the subject.

Placed in the beam path, diffusion materials modify the harsh quality of the beam by spreading or dispersing the light. This effectively softens the beam and alters its shadow-casting properties. In addition, diffusion reduces the contrast between highlight and shadow areas.

Color Tough Spun
Size 20" x 24" (51x61cm) Sheet
Application A slight diffuser. Softens edges, yet beam shape is maintained. An excellent general purpose diffuser. Replaces Spun Glass. Tough, heat resistant base.

                I've used Rosco 3006 for decades (two and a half to be exact). It's never let me down, and between it and 3007, and 3022, I've never not had the right combination of softening diffusion at my disposal. I shoot architecture, and it's all about the light quality. They also are colr neutral, so color temp is never an issue.

                These are indispensable. My lighting philosophy is light everything to make it look like it's not lit. I've never like lighting to dictate client's space. I want the space to dictate the lighting.

                does not help much with soften the hard edge of the
                shadow.

                  I bought this to attenuate a fixed hair light strobe on too-low a ceiling. I found it took 2 or 3 folds to get a stop or two. By then, the material was thick enough that I believe some cotton cloth would have been just as effective.

                  There are probably more appropriate uses for this material than my immediate need.
