Get the Film Look
4k film grain overlay can help you achieve the film look. Filmic noise adds a pleasant, dynamic texture to your footage. It also combats some of the problems that come with digital cinema cameras. Grain smooths out blocky digital noise, takes the edge of compressed footage, and eases over-sharp images. When used noticeably, grain gives the impression that you shot on real film emulsion. It’s a must-have tool for any digital shooter.

4k Film Grain Overlay
Easy To Use
Whether you are a colorist, a visual effects artist, or a do-it-all indie filmmaker, a film grain overlay can make your work a little easier. These products are easy to use, and you don’t need to know color grading or vfx to apply them. You simply import a grain file into your video editor, lay it over the footage layer, and change the blend mode to overlay. Intensity of the grain effect can increased by boosting the grain overlay layer’s contrast and decreased by turning down the opacity of the layer.
Why Our Grain is Great
Our film grain works to preserves the footage’s lumince. Other grain overlays often make the picture much lighter or darker when added. We keep brightness intact. We also designed it to blend subtly with footage without the need of adjusting contrast or opacity. However, these can be adjusted if you want to play with the grain’s intensity. This grain was also designed to emulate popular film stocks and can be paired with 3D LUTs for truly cinematic looks.
