Applying FilmConvert to your media
Once FilmConvert is installed, you will want to apply it to your footage. To do that:
First open up Avid Media Composer.
Create a new project, or open up an existing project.
In the case of a new project, create a new sequence, import some media, and drag it onto the timeline.
Open the Effects Palette window.
Go the Film Emulation category, which has the item FilmConvert Pro. Drag the effect onto your media.
You will now see some color changes, grain and FilmConvert water marks on your media!
If the Film Emulation category is not present, Windows users should download and install recent graphics drivers - for a working OpenCL runtime.
