FilmConvert has just released yet another camera pack for its popular FilmConvert Nitrate color grading software. The latest extension is specifically tailored for the Sony FX6 camera. So now you can treat your FX6 footage the FilmConvert way – happy grading!
The library of available camera packs for FilmConvert Nitrate color correction software has grown to a considerable size over the years.
Each individual pack is tailored to suit the camera in question and takes into account all the specifics of that very camera (and sensor) to create a perfect basis for further color correction of your footage and, if you like, give it a true film stock look.
The above clip was shot with a Sony FX6 and graded using FilmConvert Nitrate. Lenses used were a Sony 24-70 f2.8 GM and a Sony 70-200 f4.
FilmConvert for Sony FX6
The Sony FX6 is quite a popular camera, as it falls between the professional FX9 and the more affordable A7SIII (or FX3). It offers a good balance between “cine-like” body and small form factor. And now, with the FilmConvert treatment it just received, it has certainly become even more attractive to some filmmakers. The FilmConvert plugin integrates with many NLEs (including DaVinci Resolve, Premiere Pro, and FinalCut Pro) and simplifies the way you grade your footage.
Just choose the camera make and model (that’s why you need a camera-specific camera package), select the format in which the footage was captured, and choose the film stock you like from a list. Then set the strength, grain, saturation, exposure, etc., and off you go. This way you can a) grade your footage from start to finish, or b) simply add a “look” to an already color-corrected clip.
Personally, I prefer the latter method, dropping FilmConvert onto a dedicated node in DaVinci Resolve that sits after an initial base correction and color temperature corrections node.
The FilmConvert Nitrate camera pack for the Sony FX6 camera itself is free of charge and you can download it here. But of course you need a valid license for an instance of FilmConvert Nitrate running on your machine.
A single license for one host application is $139, a bundle with all the plugins is $199. Currently there is a 20% off price drop going on. Check out all the pricing details here.
