FilmConvert Save 25 PercentFilmConvert from Rubber Monkey is a unique film stock emulator because it's not just about applying a look to your footage, it's about replicating the exact color profile of specific film stocks on specific cameras and color profiles (standard, neutral, etc). Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, the best results come from using cameras and profiles that are supported. Recently Rubber Monkey added an OFX plugin version, which means that the software can now work directly in DaVinci Resolve 10 or Resolve Lite 10, along with other programs that work with those plugins. They've also got a Black Friday sale going on through Monday that will give you 25% off any of their programs or bundles. Click through for more on the sale and to see the new OFX plugin in action.

Here's an example of FilmConvert in Resolve with this video from SpliceNPost:

I think what's important about FilmConvert is that even if you don't care about the "film look" with visible grain, the software is an easy way to apply a nice-looking LUT to your footage. Even using a less extreme version of the film stock where you're not using any grain can do wonders for many of these digital cameras. FilmConvert offers their software in a number of flavors: Standalone Only and Plugin Only versions (Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects & Premiere, Final Cut Pro X, 7 & Motion, OFX (DaVinci), Sony Vegas) will run $200 ($149 with Black Friday code), and the giant bundle that includes everything is $300 ($224 with the Black Friday code). You can either go to their website here or enter the code BLACK in the correct box. As with all of their software, you can try any of it before you buy it, and a watermark will be applied to the footage.
