DxO Labs has announced FilmPack v3.1 Essentials and Expert, the latest versions of its film simulation software. The biggests changes are to the more expensive, Expert edition with the addition of 25 'Creative Renderings' that offer stylized effects rather than just simulating film. These preset renderings can be user-adjusted, exported and imported so that they can be shared, or packages of presets from DxO added. The interface has also been improved in both versions, including the addition of a full screen view and a resizable filmstrip view, as well as a handful of minor updates.

Paris – November 15, 2011 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability DxO FilmPack 3.1, the latest version of its famous silver halide simulation software. DxO FilmPack 3.1 adds a line of 25 new creative renderings and an improved user interface.

For world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado, “DxO FilmPack is an indispensible link to my previous photographic work.” DxO FilmPack has allowed him to faithfully reproduce in his digital image workflow the exact look and feel of Kodak® Tri-X film.

DxO FilmPack 3.1 brings to photos all the emotional impact of silver halide photography. Using an intuitive interface, beginners and experts alike can apply the characteristic tint, grain, and rendering of a traditional silver halide film type to any digital image, regardless of its source. Thanks to DxO Labs’ advanced calibration technology, DxO FilmPack 3.1 offers a renderings palette of unparalleled authenticity for 62 legendary film types —positive and negative color, black & white, and cross-processed.


DxO FilmPack 3.1 (Expert Edition) offers a line of 25 new creative renderings. The experts at DxO Labsgave utmost consideration to the aesthetic qualities and creative dimensions for each rendering to ensure that they would lend images real emotional impact.

Vintage effects, color nuances, sepia variations, partial desaturations: each rendering is based on a very subtle combination of grain intensity, film style, vignetting, and color filters — “intelligent” renderings for outstanding images.

Users can use the same settings as for film renderings to fully customize each creative rendering, thus offering the possibility of numerous possible combinations. Batch processing allows for a huge increase in productivity.


Thanks to DxO FilmPack 3.1’s large number of presets, photographers can give free rein to their creativity by combining, for example, the color settings of one film rendering with the grain of another, thus creating their own personalized film look. A new import rendering function including in the Elite Edition of DxO FilmPack 3.1 lets DxO FilmPack users share one another’s customized film looks. Users can simply import custom renderings, rename them, and save the parameters of intensity, grain, contrast, and so on in their own settings library to apply to their own images.


  Designed to satisfy both beginners and experts, DxO FilmPack 3.1’s easy-to use interface allows users to freely explore all the possibilities of the film and creative renderings provided.

Thanks to its resizable filmstrip-style preview system, DxO FilmPack 3.1 allows users to better visualize renderings before applying them to their images.

DxO FilmPack 3.1 now offers a full-screen mode for greater comfort. Among the many other improvements to the interface, the channel mixer now incorporates color sliders, making their use even more intuitive.


Compatible with Mac and Windows, DxO FilmPack 3.1 comes in 2 editions Essential and Expert which differ in terms of number of film renditions and features.

The two editions of DxO FilmPack 3.1 are available as standalone applications and as plugins for DxO Optics Pro®, Adobe® Photoshop CS®, Adobe® Lightroom® and Apple® Aperture®.
