FilmConvert IntroducesNitrate for FCPX

Nitrate is a new set of features to give you even more power and control over your color grading.

Cineon Log Film Emulation

Filmmakers love the built-in FilmConvert film stocks for their authentic look, but sometimes you want more control over the final image.

In the Nitrate update, we’ve added Cineon Log versions of our original film stock emulations, meaning you can dial the contrast or saturation of a film stock back to your liking, while still keeping the authentic film stock colors.

Design your own film response curve

We’ve designed full custom curve controls for each of the FilmConvert film stocks, so you can create exactly the look you want: modify highlight and shadow roll-offs, or even design your own film stock from scratch. Nitrate now uses a full Log image processing pipeline, so you can retain the full dynamic range of your footage through the grading process.

Advanced film grain controls

You can now adjust the appearance of the grain individually in the highlights, mid-tones, and shadows.

Camera profiles

We work with a wide range of popular cameras to deliver the most precise picture profiles available. We then use those profiles to match to your chosen film stocks to create a stunning and accurate result.

Our Camera Packs contain accurate data for each Camera Picture Style so we can tailor each film stock to your camera, allowing authentic Film Stock looks across a wide range of cameras and settings. We continue to work directly with camera companies to bring you the latest profiles.

Real Film Grain

Add real grain to your footage, scanned at 6k.

Unlike other plugins that simply overlay film grain, FilmConvert realistically models the amount of grain required for each color and exposure level in your image.

19 Film Stocks to choose from in FilmConvert Nitrate for FCPX

With the majority of people shooting on digital these days, filmmakers are striving to achieve the desired qualities of film stocks when grading in post. Often, this requires a good team of colorists. However, we bridge that process for everyone! We recreate the grain structure and spectral responses of a variety of modern film stocks, from Kodak® to FujiFilm®.

Create and export 3D LUTs using FilmConvert Nitrate for FCPX

LUTs are a great way to export your grade for use on devices or any compatible software. Here are some ways this can help improve your workflow.

  1. Use 3D LUTs on your monitor for on-set visualization. View on your monitor the look you will apply during post-production.
  2. In addition, load 3D LUTs into most color-grading software, which can be useful in workflows where plugin support is limited.
  3. Likewise, export a 3D LUT to share your grade with others working on your film.

Export your grade as a .cube LUT from any non-trial plugin version of FilmConvert. Consequently, you cannot currently export .cube LUTs from the desktop app version at this time.

Download your latest camera profile today!

FilmConvert camera profiles are dedicated data packs that increase the color accuracy for your footage.

The data packs work in both the FilmConvert plugins and desktop app grading software. They cannot be loaded into your camera, but you can use the plugin software to export a LUT with your color settings to use in-camera if you wish.

You can download our most recent camera profiles below. If we don’t currently support your camera, you can request it here.

If we don’t have an exact match for your camera, never fear! You can still use our software to achieve a stunning result. We advise you to have a play with some of the different camera profile packs, especially within the same manufacturer.

Note: These Camera Packs need the latest version of FilmConvert for full compatibility
