Detain Regrain in Aces

Morning Everone (depending where you are)

Prior to any comp I would always do the degrain then regrain process, so subtracting the grain the adding it back.

Now that most projects are Aces the result is often not as it should be! Any light areas that have been removed show noticeable grain artifacts when the original grain is added back. Does anyone know the work around for this, Im happy to use the the regrain tool with a matte but wondered if anyone knows the new normal for the old process. Many thanks as always.

Try to replace subtruct/add operations with divide/multiply. Should help


That completely nailed it thank you so much.
