Why FilmPack?

I understand, I think, that DxO's FilmPack provides excellent emulation of different film emulsions.

My question is: if you never shot film, would you be interested?

Perhaps  because one may wish to achieve the look provided by a given emulsion without the hassle?

It also adds a number of features to PhotoLab that have nothing to do with film emulations. In effect, having an FP licence turns on some advanced PhotoLab functions.

Please could you elaborate on this part of your post, as in what is missing/non functional in PL Elite that is turned on by using FP that are nothing to do with the film emulations???
