New! -- Mac version for Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects available.

Pixelan FilmTouch 2.0 Film Look Effects Plugin for Adobe Premiere, After Effects, and Sony Vegas

$29 FilmTouch

The perfect choice for fast, adjustable film looks for video that you can easily fine-tune if desired. Whether adding a warm, dreamy look to a wedding video shot on a cloudy day, or creating a custom mood/style for your Indie or YouTube movie, FilmTouch can affordably solve it. FilmTouch includes:

• GPU Hardware Acceleration.
Our film looks look great AND they render extremely fast (near-real-time on many systems), depending on the speed of the GPU/video card on your computer.

200+ Terrific Film Look Presets.
They are organized into twelve real-world categories: Cool, Warm, Desaturate, Duotone, Monochrome, Filmic, Stronger, Soft-Dreamy, Color Shift, Abstract, Special, and Gradiated.

• LARGE, visual Effects Browser. Use our Effects Browser to easily choose the best preset for your clips. No tiny thumbnails or name-only listings that make you guess. Instead you get LARGE previewing while interactively comparing presets. Mark and organize favorites per project/client, hide unwanted presets, etc. Use your mouse wheel or keyboard to roll through choices easily while keeping your eye on the visuals. Then double-click any preset to instantly apply it.

• Easy Adjustability.
FilmTouch is more than just presets. Each film look is adjustable for strength, gamma and saturation -- the most useful trio for common tweaks -- so you can quickly and easily fine-tune any film look preset to your needs.

Pixelan FilmTouch 2.0 Pro Film Look Effects Plugin for Adobe Premiere, After Effects, and Sony Vegas

$49 FilmTouch PRO

The PRO version is the best choice for prosumer and professional videographers, indie film makers, and all others who want even more variety and control over their video and film looks. FilmTouch PRO includes the fast GPU hardware acceleration and large visual Effects Browser described in the $29 version at left -- PLUS...

500+ professional, highly aesthetic, USEFUL film look presets. Terrific FRESH looks that go far beyond classic/historical film looks and are not simple variations. All are organized into sixteen real-world categories: Filmic Subtle, Filmic Moderate, Filmic Strong, Cool, Warm, Desaturate, Duotone Warm, Duotone Cool, Monochrome, Boosted, Low Light, Color Shift, Abstract, Other, Add Diffusion to Effect, and Add Vignette to Effect.

• A wide range of powerful film look optimized controls to fine-tune color subtleties any way you can imagine -- or to build a fresh film look from scratch.


FilmTouch PRO also has SIX exclusive advantages over other film look plugins:


1. Preserve in Source. FilmTouch Pro’s powerful but easy scene-based (not geometric) masking allows you to apply a film look but leave untouched an already “just right” color or luminance area -- such as someone’s face, a car or other object, the sky, a logo's color, etc. Just click it in your preview to preserve it!

2. True Diffusion. FilmTouch Pro’s diffusion controls are worthy of a separate Pro plugin but are fully integrated. Independent blending, blur and glow controls together create extremely realistic and diverse diffusions. Or use our one-click diffusion presets to instantly apply diffusion to your film look.

3. Unique Vignettes and Frame Edge Effects. Dark lens vignettes, white frame feathering, light leaks, edge defocus effects and more can be instantly added to any film look effect preset -- and are keyframable for strength, shape, size, position, and softness. You can even select which individual film look qualities to vignette or not.

4. Section Presets. Another Pixelan exclusive! Useful presets per section of controls -- not just overall effect presets -- is a HUGE productivity advantage. Why? Because with just a few clicks, you can mix and match section presets to create HUNDREDS of compelling fresh film look variations!

5. GREAT technical support. See our user customer service testimonials. Fast, personal, in-house tech support is a key reason why Pixelan is one of the longest-established video effects plugin companies in the world. It’s our 17th year! :)

6. The MOST value. Last but not least, FilmTouch Pro gives you more power per dollar than any other film look plugin. (See chart at left.) It is also available in money-saving bundles with Pixelan’s other popular plugins for Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas, and After Effects. Compare to other film look plugins that cost $350-$550 more, or cost less but only offer a few presets and far less features.

Pixelan FilmTouch 2.0 Pro Film Looks -- Filmic Film Look Presets

FT Pro -- Filmic Presets

Filmic presets retain a scene's full range of colors but alter contrast, saturation, etc. to simulate a classic film look or to create an attractive fresh treatment. Hundreds of hours went into developing these film looks, which are organized into three categories -- Subtle, Moderate, and Stronger. This movie features the latter two categories.
Pixelan FilmTouch 2.0 Pro Film Looks -- Cool/Warm Film Look Presets

FT Pro -- Cool and Warm Presets

This movie is the same format as the movie at left, but covers the Cool and Warm presets in FilmTouch Pro. These presets subjectively 'cool' or 'warm' all coloration in a scene. Careful attention is paid to skin tones and bright white values so you don't end up with a cool or warm scene with weird-looking people or an odd bright white inconsistency.
Pixelan FilmTouch 2.0 Pro Film Looks -- Desaturate/Duotone Film Look Presets

Desaturate and Duotone Presets

Desaturate and duotone film look presets are a visual bridge towards the monotone film look presets at right. Highly desirable when you want a scene's mood to appear muted, dreamy, historical, or simply beautifully unusual. In the Pro version, you can also add a very realistic diffusion or vignette to any of these looks.

Pixelan FilmTouch 2.0 Pro Film Looks -- Duotone/Monochrome Film Look Presets

Monochrome Presets

Monochrome effect presets done right are an art, not just a simple matter of removing color. As a result, shadow areas are not plugged up and bright areas retain full detail. Contrast, brightness, and individual channel values were tweaked extensively to give you a wide range of desirable duotone and monochrome looks.
