Film Presets for Ps & Final Cut Pro

Thanks for offering to test the beta filters of the Mextures Film Presets for Photoshop!  Our 30 film presets are some of the best on the mobile platform, and we've had a ton of requests for the Film Presets for Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, & Lightroom.  These compliment our Premium Textures perfectly which you can see here:  Mextures Premium Textures 

Over the next few weeks I’ll be making changes to this page based on your feedback with these filters.  Below are the instructions on how to use these 30 filters.  Lightroom Film Presets will be coming shortly and added to this page!  I'll be sending out another email for Lightroom when addedFeel free to drop me a message or email letting me know which file format you prefer.

The presets for Photoshop come in 2 different file types:  .acv and .cube. The .acv extension is to be used with the Curves Adjustments in Photoshop. The .cube extension is used with the Color Lookup Table adjustments in Photoshop.  These .cube files can also be used in Final Cut Pro!  Installing them is a breeze.

The ZIP file will have two folders in it, and also the tutorial below as a PDF.

LUTs Installation for Final Cut Pro

For Final Cut, I recommend using the plugin mLUT from MotionVFX.  It's a simple plugin that installs in seconds and allow you to use these LUT .cube files in Final Cut for beautiful color grading.
