Tiffen is known for their filters, so one might expect the bar to be set a little higher for their Dfx digital filters. While at their booth at NAB, we got the chance to take a closer look at what kinds of effects are included in Dfx v4, as well as all of the features included in the suite.
There are a lot of great features in Dfx, namely the fact that their 2000+ library simulates specialized lenses, optical lab processes, film grain, and even Tiffen's physical glass filters. It's compatible with virtually all of the popular post-production software, like Adobe Premiere and After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Avid, Blackmagic Resolve, Nuke, and more. Version 4 of Dfx comes with a host of upgrades and add-ons, including GPU acceleration, Retina Display support, and a bunch of new plugins, like "grunge", "cartoon", and "Harris Shutter", which uses separate images for the red, green and blue channels.
Here's the promo video for Dfx v4:
Film/video plugins will cost you $500 and $1000; the main difference between them is how many, and which, post software it's compatible with. For instance, the $130 version works without a host, while the $1000 version works with Assimilate Scratch, Black Magic Resolve and The Foundry's Nuke.
