Welcome to a PROGRAIN 4K Lesson from Pixel Film Studios.

PROGRAIN 4K allows Final Cut Pro X users to give their footage the look of real celluloid film.
This collection of 20 film stocks can instantly give any video a more cinematic feel.

With easy to use controls, editors can quickly manipulate the contrast, opacity, color and texture of the film.

PROGRAIN 4K works on any footage up to 4K resolution.

Before starting the project, make sure that your Final Cut Pro X is up to date. ProGrain requires version 10.1.2 or newer.
You can check your version number by clicking on "About Final Cut Pro" in the Final Cut Pro drop down menu.

Let's begin by selecting a clip in the FCPX media library and dragging it to the timeline.
Once you have your footage in the timeline, go to the FCPX effects library to locate the ProGrain presets.

Scan through the film stocks and select the texture that best matches the look you want.
Drag and drop the filter on your clip in the Final Cut Pro X timeline.

Once you have applied your film grain, it’s time to customize the look of it to work with your footage.

Select your clip in the timeline.
Use the Grain Controls in the FCPX Inspector to adjust the film stock, opacity, and blend mode.

Then use the Film Controls to adjust the Grain exposure, smoothness, and detail.

Next, use the Color Controls to adjust the temperature of the film.

Once you have the film looking the way you want it.
You can quickly and easily copy these settings onto the rest of the clips in your scene.

Select your original clip in the timeline, and press command, option, c on the keyboard.

Then select another clip in the timeline and press command, option, v.

Repeat this with the rest of the clips in your sequence.
