Applying FilmConvert to your media

Once FilmConvert is installed, you will want to apply it to your footage. To do that:
  • First open up After Effects or Premiere.
  • Create a new project, or open up an existing project.
  • In the case of a new project, import some media, and drag it onto the timeline (Premiere) or a composition (After Effects).
  • If in Premiere find the Effects tab. In After Effects, find the Effects menu item.
  • Go the Film Emulation category, which currently has just one item FilmConvert. Drag the effect onto your media.

You will now see some color changes, grain and FilmConvert water marks on your media!

NOTE: If the Film Emulation category is not visible in Premiere, close Premiere, then re-launch with the Shift and Alt keys held down until the welcome screen appears. This will clear the plugin cache.

If the Effect is still not present, Windows users should download and install recent graphics drivers (for a working OpenCL runtime), then clear the plugin cache again.
