The art of making a good movie includes learning how to guide the eye around the screen through the cuts between shots. Final Picture is about using techniques and tools to accomplish that.

You can adjust cinematography, the edit, the color grading, the performance, and the sound all at the same time, from the same desk. The SFM is the first tool ever to allow you to make these kinds of changes all at once, iteratively, as many times as you want.

You can emulate what happens when you view real film in a movie theater by using the tools in the SFM, including using vignetting to darken the edges of a scene, creating film-grain effects, and adjusting color correction, depth of field, lighting, and motion blur.
