DxO FilmPack 6 introduced with new analog film filters and effects

DxO today introduced a new version of FilmPack 6 – its popular software that reproduces the grain and colors of legendary analog films.

In this new version, new film looks have been introduced with additional cinematic renditions, a wide range of new effects and a new feature called “Time Machine” which is an interactive introduction to the history of film photography. As with DxO PhotoLab 5, also announced today, Fujifilm camera owners will be happy to hear that their cameras are now supported (X-Trans RAW files).

“Time Machine” is a fun way to apply historic film looks to their footage so they can recreate a similar style and finish. It’s a new way to display creative and analog renderings that are separated into 14 periods illustrated by iconic images and famous figures in photography.

“We wanted to give DxO FilmPack even more depth,” comments Jean-Marc Alexia, VP Marketing & Product Strategy. “To document our Time Machine, we collaborated with the Friends of the French Museum of Photography in Bièvres, an association chaired by photographer Didier Pilon, who produced fantastic research.”

15 new renderings were introduced, including KODAK’s popular EIR Professional Infrared EIR Color Slide Film, EKTACHROME, and monochrome instant film for the Polaroid 600 camera, IMPOSSIBLE PX 600 SILVER SHADE. In addition, 20 new effects are available as well as 15 new light leak effects and 15 new frames.

A new color rendering engine based on eight channels, instead of the six channels used in previous versions, gives users more precise color control. Users can also select their own tint in the highlights and shadows of their images, combine colors, and achieve subtle and realistic split-tone effects.

DxO FilmPack 6

DxO FilmPack reproduces as closely as possible the grain and colors of legendary analog films thanks to an exclusive calibration process developed in its laboratories. The software recreates the hue, saturation, contrast and grain of 84 authentic analog films, including the popular Kodak Tri-X 400, Polaroid 690, Ilford HPS and Fujifilm Superia. He also uses a decidedly original approach to navigate the progression of development and processing technologies through different photographic eras.

Time Machine: Harnessing the History of Photography to Boost Creativity
DxO FilmPack 6 offers users a real journey through time, offering an introduction to the history of analog photography from its inception to the present day. The software introduces a new way to display creative and analog renderings separated into 14 periods illustrated by legendary and iconic images and famous figures in photography. Each photograph is technically and historically documented, and users are given the closest render so they can apply it to their images and recreate a similar style and finish. So, for example, users can infuse their black and white images with the charm of the 1950s or even the soul of William Klein’s art.
