Dehancer | How to get a “Hollywood look” with very few clicks

Nowadays, digital videos have incredible quality and the charm that traditional analog films had has been lost a bit. In this post I want to talk to you about Dehancer, a plugin with which you can achieve that cinematic effect that movies have with very few clicks. Dehancer Pro is much more than a color correction plugin, as it allows you to simulate that analog style to create a more authentic and vintage look in digital videos. It offers very interesting features such as color grading, grain or traditional film effects. Let’s see the effects in more detail:

Dehancer Pro: Effects and Features

Dehancer Film Profiles

Dehancer offers a multitude of film emulations, such as Kodak, Cinestill or Fujifilm. There are a wide variety of options to choose from, and the best thing is that they are all fully configurable. My favorites are the Kodak Portra 800 and the Cinestill 800T. This plugin has a powerful algorithm that allows users to experiment with different visual styles, from characteristic grain to accurate reproduction of colors and tones.

Dehancer Film grain

Film grain is a distinctive characteristic of analogue photographs and films. In Dehancer, film grain is digitally recreated using sophisticated algorithms that mimic the look and distribution of real film grain. As with all effects, this grain is fully configurable and is much more realistic than if we recreated it with simple adjustment layers.


Halation is a type of reddish glow that appears in movies when filming in places with bright or high-contrast lighting. This is considered a “visual error”, but if used correctly it can give an artistic look to the image.


Bloom is like a kind of halo that appears in intense lights such as streetlights, spotlights or the sun.
