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, the user needs to make sure that Final Cut Pro X is up to date. Prograin 4K requires version 10.1.3 or newer.
Check the fpcx version number by clicking on "About Final Cut Pro" in the Final Cut Pro drop down menu. To begin, select a clip in the FCPX media library and drag it to the timeline. Once the footage has been placed, 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 stacked on top the media in the Final Cut Pro X timeline.

Next, use the Color Controls to adjust the temperature of the film. Once the film is looking the way the user desired, quickly copy these settings onto the rest of the clips in the scene. Select the original clip in the timeline, and press command, option, c on the keyboard. Then select another clip in the timeline and press command, option.
