What does Film Convert Nitrate do?

Both FilmConvert Nitrate and CineMatch are plugins that work with Premiere Pro, After Effects, DaVinci Resolve, and Final Cut Pro. 

FilmConvert Nitrate is a tool for achieving a film emulation for your digitally shot footage. It emulates classic film stock and adds grain. The grain is not simply an overlay over the clip, but the plugin models the amount of grain for each color and exposure in the used footage. 

Here’s a walkthrough of what the plugin does:

Halation expansion for FilmConvert Nitrate

The company now also offers a halation extension which allows you to further control the amount of halation in the footage.

This extension traces the light in the footage to see where halation should occur. Halation is the effect that appears on film footage when bright areas seem to softly bleed across the edges of dark areas with a light orange glow around the edges. While the effect should only be subtle, it adds a “filmic” feel to the footage.

You can see the halation expansion at work here:

What is CineMatch?

CineMatch is a tool that allows you to easily match footage from different cameras. The company has developed its own sensor-matching technique with dedicated camera packs for all major camera companies. This makes matching the footage a lot easier than doing it by hand or via the built-in controls of some NLEs.

You can see a walkthrough of the camera sensor matching here:

The company is very good at keeping the program up-to-date and continues to add camera profiles regularly. The latest version, released in October, for example, added support for the new Apple LOG format found on the iPhone 15 Pro.
