Film Express

What it does: Combines some of the most useful Film Effects in one convenient menu.

How to use it: Use the controls to adjust the effects.

  • Jitter move frames up, down, left and right in a random fashion. Drag the control down for less jitter, up for more jitter.
  • Flicker randomly adjust the brightness of each frame to produce a flicker effect. Drag the control to the left for less flicker, to the right for more flicker.
  • Tint select a color to emphasize. Click the dropper icon to select a color from anywhere on the screen, or click the color box to select from a large spectrum of colors.
  • Tint Intensity determine how much to boost or reduce the color selected. Drag the control to the left for less intensity, to the right for more intensity. (Use in conjunction with Hue to achieve different color looks.) To achieve a classic sepia look, choose a brown hue, then turn up the Black & White and Tint Intensity controls so the entire image is shades of brown.
  • Saturation shift the image from full color on the left, and black and white on the right.
  • Film Gamma recreate the color range (gamut) of film. (The Gamma controls lets you adjust the overall brightness of an image. Film tends to have a linear region in the middle, but the highs (brights) and lows (darks) are compressed. The Gamma control recreates this by compressing the lights and darks while expanding the mid tones. So, brights are brighter and darks are darker. Because of this, the image looks less dull.) Drag the dial to the left for for brighter, to the right for darker.
  • Wear determine the effect of aging on film. Drag the control to the left for the look of relatively new film, to the right for older, worn-out film.
  • Spots interject random small spots throughout the image. Drag the control to the left for fewer spots, to the right for more spots.
  • Scratches introduce vertical scratches in the film. Drag the Scratches control to the right for fewer scratches, to the left for more scratches. (When the Scratches  control is dragged completely left, the scratches don't appear very deep into the film's surface. The more the dial is dragged to the right, the deeper the scratches appear to be.) Specify the density, depth, color and thickness of the scratches using the Scratches sub-controls.
