Applying FilmConvert to your media

Once FilmConvert is installed, you will want to apply it to your footage. To do that:
  • First open up Final Cut Pro or Motion.
  • 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.
  • The next step is application dependent:
    • In Motion find the "Library" tab, then the "Filters" category.
    • In FCP X, find the "Effects" browser.
    • In FCP 7, go to the "Effects" menu item, then the "Video Filters" category.
  • Go the "Film Emulation" sub 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 you media!
