ACES Print Film Emulation Generator offers everything you need to create your own ACEScct print film emulations. With multiple tools based on real film colour science and response, makes it easier than ever to create your own print film emulations.

Look. ACEScct print film emulations, made from real-life film scans, have been created from the ground up for ACEScct for seamless integration in an ACES workflow. But that’s not all. Even if you are not using ACES you can use our print film emulations as will adapt the colour science for your workflow. In-post or in-camera. You decide. Leave technicalities to us. Stay creative. 


Choose from 10 pre-made filmic curve responses and achieve that cinematic highlight roll-off easily and quickly.

Low Contrast Filmic Response

High Contrast Filmic Response


Subtractive CMY colour model emulates the colour processing of a real film emulsion. Unlike additive RGB colour model where saturation increases as the colour becomes brighter, in subtractive mode saturation increases as the colour becomes darker. Emulate the feel and density of real film emulsion easily using the CMY colour model.

Original Image

Original image as loaded in ACES Input and Output Transforms are sRGB.

Increased Saturation and Contrast

Colour density remains similar to the original image even though saturation and contrast are higher.

Subtractive Colour

Colour density is increased, especially in darker areas and vivid colours. Density can be confirmed with Vectorscope.


Easily balance the image for any colour inconsistencies uniformly across the entire range. Save precious time and get your colour correction just right in seconds.

Corrections. opens up the world of secondary corrections for you with brilliant and precise controls, highly sophisticated algorithms and interface that works for you. You get complete Hue, Saturation and Luminance control across different colour ranges as well as Luminance Vs Saturation and Saturation Vs Saturation controls.

Original Grade

Original grade created in using Cine Look 1 and Print Film Emulation 1 for the base grade.

Option 1

Blue hue from the original grade is tinted toward green using Hue, Saturation and Luminance controls.

Option 2

Blue hue from the original grade is tinted toward olive using Hue, Saturation and Luminance controls.


Recreate the beauty of film stock with deeper, richer colours. Unlike traditional RGB colour mode controls where colour gets brighter as saturation increases, allows you to make darker colours more saturated emulating the look and feel of film stock. We call this colour density.

Warmth. allows you to recreate that golden light feeling without affecting the rest of the image’s colour palette. It’s much more than just white balance, saturation and vibrance.
