Need A Digital Film Stock? There’s a Plugin for That

model_fs
This past week I had a chance to get reacquainted with one of my longtime favorite (but obscure) image plugins. The aptly named Film Stocks plugin from Digital Film Tools simulates the look of many classics. In fact you’ll find 288 different color and black and white stocks that match photographic film stocks, motion picture stocks, and historical photographic processes.

The package is $99, which may seem a little high at first, but its accuracy and depth are quite refreshing. The filter simulates the grain structure, response curve, and gamma of traditional film stocks. I’ve met the developer personally, and I can tell you that they are quite passionate about the accuracy of the looks. The looks were built through extensive research of actual film stocks.

You’ll find presets to match stocks from the following companies:

  • Agfa
  • Fuji
  • Ilford
  • Kodak
  • Polaroid
  • Rollei

The looks themselves can also be modified. Multiple looks can be layered or individual parameters can be adjusted. Easy to use masking tools let you blend or obscure effects selectively. A very attractive vignette generator can be used to produce organize results as well. The plugin works on both 8 and 16-bit images to give greater color accuracy.
