Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

Video editing can be a time-consuming business, and grading is an art that can take years to master. Cinema Grade simplifies and speeds things up by enabling intuitive adjustments and easy shot-matching. 

It works as a plug-in for Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro or DaVinci Resolve on MacOS (there’s currently no Windows version). You need to purchase the correct version for your editing software, but if you use more than one package, you can unlock Cinema Grade for three host applications for an additional fee of $29.
