FAQ

Film grain or granularity is the random optical texture of processed photographic film due to the presence of small particles of a metallic silver, or dye clouds, developed from silver halide that have received enough photons. 
Film grain overlay (FGO), is a process in which film emulsion characteristics are overlaid using different levels of opacity onto a video.
HolyGrain is a complete library of film grain scans, ready to be overlaid onto your footage. Here you can find film grain and dirt artifacts from 35mm, 16mm, 8mm film stocks.
In short, digital cameras tend to produce very sterile images. Filmmmakers, editors and colorists trust our plates to give an organic, filmic look to their digital productions. Compositors, also use our grain library to integrate cgi objects into live scenes.
Our grain plates are from real film scans that have been processed digitally in order to remove vignettes and dirt, color correct, crop and scale.
Holygrain is compatible with nearly every professional editing, visual effects, compositing, color correction application including Final Cut Pro X and 7, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, BlackMagic Davinci Resolve, Sony Vegas and other applications that support “blend/composite” modes.
No, Holygrain’s plates do not mess with your colors and luminance like other grain plates.
The grain plates are designed for “seamless looping”. Adjust the first grain plate and then copy-paste it until your whole clip is filled with grain. 25sec of CLEAN(!!!) grain are more than enough for every project.
Yes, but only if your material is that boring. It’s 1 minute of random randomness flashing randomly in your screen. And then you can rotate it, mirror it, cut it, mix it etc. Not every part of film is damaged the same way.  Again with the Dirt Pack, the options are unlimited. 16 dirt plates of 1min + 1 essential dirt plate running for 5 minutes!  Also keep in mind that we offer clean grain plates and individual dirt plates.
