simple and powerful auto white-balance

For any film emulation to work, you need to start with an image that is properly white-balanced. With many modern digital cameras, this is more challenging than it ought to be. So Koji Advance comes with a powerful auto-white balance option. You might be surprised how often you use it.


includes LUTs for your camera or field monitor

All Koji film stocks are also provided as .cube LUT files, so you can load Koji into your LUT-capable field monitor or camera. This allows you to expose properly for your favorite film stock while shooting, or to show clients a live preview of the final look on set.


works natively with your video format (no more internet research required)

Digital video formats are a bit of a mess. There are dozens of them, and they all work slightly differently. Koji Advance supports all major camera formats natively – whether your footage was shot on a Sony FS7, RED Dragon, Canon DSLR, or A7S, just choose your format and go. It just works.


preserving true film color

In the course of developing Koji, we worked with nearly every major film lab in Hollywood, with Dale onsite to check LAD and oversee print quality at every stage. Most of the film stocks we used have since been discontinued. By painstakingly preserving the color response of these film stocks, we hope to maintain the beauty of film color for future filmmakers to use.
