Make sure you have a FilmConvert Nitrate account

If you create an account using the same email your license was purchased with, you will be able to manage your license from your accounts page. You may already have an account with FilmConvert, so you can reset your password here.

If your account was purchased with an older email that you can no longer access, please contact us at [email protected].

Download and install the newest version of Nitrate

You can download the latest version of the plugin from FilmConvert’s Software Updates here. Open the installer once finished downloading to install Nitrate to your editor.

You will need to restart your editor once the new version has been installed. Upon opening, you will receive a pop-up from the FilmConvert Registration to install a new helper tool. Enter your device details, and click okay. You will only have to do this upon the first install.
