Nitrate is the newest version of FilmConvert. It will have a new set of features to help enhance color grading. Key features include Cineon Log film emulations, full custom curve controls, and advanced film grain controls.
Cineon Log Film Emulation
FilmConvert’s film stocks have proved popular with filmmakers over the years, but users have been requesting more control over how they can manipulate those stocks.
In the Nitrate update, Filmconvert has added Cineon Log versions of their original film stock emulations, which now allows you to dial in the exact amount of contrast or saturation while still keeping the authentic film stock colors.
Design your own film response curve
FilmConvert has also designed full custom curve controls for each of the FilmConvert film stocks. You can now modify highlight and shadow roll-offs, or if you want, 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
Nitrate also allows you to adjust the appearance of the grain individually in the highlights, mid-tones, and shadows.
Will my old version of FilmConvert still work?
Yes. Any project using the old version of the FilmConvert plugin will still work fine.
