S_FilmEffect
Description
Provides a physically accurate model of film exposure and processing to make your digital imahe look like it was shot on particular film stocks. It can perform color correction for specific film types, add film grain, and apply glow or soft focus effects.
The S_FilmEffect filter comes from the Emmy award winning Boris FX Sapphire filter set.

Print Film
Selects the print film stock.
None
Ignore any effect of the print film. This causes the negative to be output directly. If the Negative Film parameter is also set to None, the color correction and grain are disabled.

Ektachrome 100D Reversal film, daylight balanced, high contrast and grainy. Note that the negative film is ignored when using reversal film.
Kodak 7270 Rev
Kodachrome 40 Movie Film, tungsten balanced reversal film, high contrast and somewhat grainy. Note that the negative film is ignored when using reversal film.
Blur Input
The image is smoothed by this amount. This can be used to remove noise or compression artifacts before processing.
Color Correct
Scale CC
Scales the amount of color correction performed due to the film types, gamma values, and exposure values. Set to 0 to disable color correction. If you increase this above 1, it exaggerates the color correction, which normally increases the contrast.
Input Gamma
The gamma that your original image was shot for. For video, this is normally 2.2; for synthetic computer graphics, it may be less.
Output Gamma
The intended viewing gamma of the output.
Neg Exposure
Adjusts the simulated exposure of the negative film in stops. Increase for overexposed and brighter.
Print Exposure
Adjusts the simulated exposure of the print film in stops. Increase for overexposed and darker.
Print Lights Red
Adjusts the red exposure of the print film in printer light points. 1 light point is 1/12 stop. Increase to overexpose red and give a more cyan result.
Print Lights Green
Adjusts the green exposure of the print film in printer light points. 1 light point is 1/12 stop. Increase to overexpose green and give a more magenta result.
Print Lights Blue
Adjusts the blue exposure of the print film in printer light points. 1 light point is 1/12 stop. Increase to overexpose blue and give a more yellow result.
Scale Brights
Scales the bright areas of the final result after the other color correction, glow, and grain are applied. This parameter is not affected by Scale CC.
Offset Darks
Adds a gray value to the darker regions of the final result after the other color correction, glow, and grain are applied. This can be negative to increase contrast. This parameter is not affected by Scale CC.
Glow
Glow Brightness
If positive, the image is combined with a blurred version of itself to give a glowing look. Increase for a brighter glow.
Glow Soft Focus
If positive, the image is mixed with a blurred version of itself to give a soft focus look. The effect of this parameter is similar to Glow Brightness, but this does not brighten the overall result. Increase this to mix in more of the blurred version and less of the original. If this is 1 and Glow Brightness is 0, you will get only the blurred version.
Glow Width
The width of the blur used by the glow and/or soft focus.
Glow Width Red
The relative glow width for the red channel.
Glow Width Green
The relative glow width for the green channel.
Glow Width Blue
The relative glow width for the blue channel.
Grain Amp
Scales the amplitude of the film grain that is added to the result. Set this to 0 to disable all grain.
Grain Details
Grain Amp Red
Scales the red grain amplitude.
Grain Amp Green
Scales the green grain amplitude.
Grain Amp Blue.
Scales the blue grain amplitude. Note that grain is added and subtracted from the image, so for example, increasing Grain Amp Blue will amplify both the blue and yellow speckles.
Grain Amp Darks
The relative amount of grain applied to the darkest regions of the image per channel. This defaults to less than 1 because dark areas usually have less grain than midtones.
Grain Amp Brights
The relative amount of grain applied to the brightest regions of the image per channel. This defaults to 0 because bright areas usually have less grain than midtones. Note that highly saturated colors can be affected by both Grain Amp Darks and Grain Amp Brights because they are dark in some color channels and bright in others.
Midtone Pos Red
The position of the midtones in the red channel that will normally receive the maximum amount of grain. The red grain amplitude is interpolated from Grain Amp Darks at black, up to 1 at this midtone position, then down to Grain Amp Brights at white. This whole curve is then scaled by the Grain Amp Red parameter.
Midtone Pos Green
The position of the midtones in the green channel that will normally receive the maximum amount of grain. The green grain amplitude is interpolated from Grain Amp Darks at black, up to 1 at this midtone position, then down to Grain Amp Brights at white. This whole curve is then scaled by the Grain Amp Green parameter.
Midtone Pos Blue
The position of the midtones in the blue channel that will normally receive the maximum amount of grain. The blue grain amplitude is interpolated from Grain Amp Darks at black, up to 1 at this midtone position, then down to Grain Amp Brights at white. This whole curve is then scaled by the Grain Amp Blue parameter.
Grain Blur
The grain is smoothed by this amount. Increase for coarser grain.
Grain Blur Red
The relative blur amount for the red grain.
Grain Blur Green
The relative blur amount for the green grain.
Grain Blur Blue
The relative blur amount for the blue grain.
Grain Mono
When enabled, the same grain pattern is used for the red, green, and blue channels. To make truly monochrome grain you should also set Grain Amp Red/Green/Blue equal to each other, make sure Midtone Pos Red/Green/Blue are equal, and if GrainBlur is positiv,e then also set Grain Blur Red/Green/Blue to be equal.
Vignette Darkness
Vignetting is darkening of the image towards the corners and sides of the image. This parameter controls how much the outer corners of the screen should be darkened or vignetted. 0 produces no vignetting, while a value of 1 creates maximum darkening.
Vignette Details
Vignette Radius
Distance from the center to apply the vignette.
Vignette Edge Softness
The width of the vignette's soft edge. Larger values give softer, less visible edges.
Vignette Rel Height
Controls the aspect ratio of the vignette ellipse. This should normally be set to the aspect ratio of the image.
