STEP 1

Locate which Tropic Colour Film Grain you want to you. We have different stocks, speeds, and styles. This depends on what you are going for, some of our film grain is more subtle, others have a bit more character. One you locate your grain, bring it into your editing software.

STEP 2

Locate which Tropic Colour Film Grain you want to you. We have different stocks, speeds, and styles. This depends on what you are going for, some of our film grain is more subtle, others have a bit more character. One you locate your grain, bring it into your editing software. Add the clip above your footage (similar to how you would add an adjustment layer). Depending on your timeline resolution, you may need to scale the grain to fit the frame. Our grain is 4K, so on a timeline that is larger than that, just move over to the VIDEO EFFECTS tab and scale up 10 or so points.

STEP 3

Now move over to the VIDEO EFFECTS tab and under OPACITY, change the BLEND MODE to SOFT LIGHT (blend mode OVERLAY works as well) and this will "KEY" out the grey in the grain, leaving... just the grain!

STEP 4

You'll notice that the grain clip on your timeline is only 10sec long. All you'll need to do is copy and paste a few times to have it REPEAT across your entire timeline.

Quick Tip: Make sure there are no empty spaces or black frames between your edits, you'll notice they'll become grey from the grain. A simple fix is to take the BLADE tool and cut out any sections of the grain that are over black
