At PhotoPlus 2011, I sat down with one of the software developers at DxO Labs to talk about the recently introduced DxO FilmPack 3, which is photo processing software that emulates the look of classic film types.
It was interesting to hear how the film looks are developed for use in the digital workflow. Several of the sample prints that I’ve seen offer a compelling duplication of film grain and color. If you’ve ever shot with film before, you will appreciate the science and effort that DxO Labs puts into crafting the film presets by using the actual analog film we shot with in the past, including some that are no longer available for purchase.
DxO FilmPack 3 is available for Mac and PC as a standalone product, or as a plug-in for DxO Optics Pro, Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture. You can learn more about DxO FilmPack 3 on DxO Labs’ website.
