The Cinematic Color Custom Filter

Ever wonder how to create a cinematic color grading in Polarr? You can simply apply this filter and learn the color grading steps behind it.

The main idea of this effect is to create the popular "teal-and-orange" film look that you can often see it in blockbuster videos or movies. The complementary color combination — The dark shades of teal against the bright orange tones — can easily make the subject pops out and grabs your attention immediately.

Hmm i tried importing this filter and my polarr keeps getting stuck on loading after selecting it from the import option
That's weird. What platform are you on?
Well currently I'm trying it on both my Samsung tab s3 and one plus 6t. But I'll give it a try on the iPad
Yes on the iPad it imported quickly. Strange
Maybe a small bug in the import option in android?
OK another interesting fact is that the filter does not cross sync between my devices like the others I've created or imported. It seems exclusive to be used on my iPad
This what it looks like on my device when trying to import. It just stays loading perpetually.
Thanks This is very helpful! We will look into this and see if we can reproduce it
OK I've managed to narrow it down to it just being an issue that is persistent on the one plus 6t, the Samsung tab s3 and iPad passed. On to check windows and chrome os
OK so I've tried the following, windows 10 app, Android 8: Samsung tab s3 , iPad iOS 12.1.4, chrome Os as both an Android app and chrome OS app, Mac os ex app. I tried using the web based online editor but the page didn't load on either my chromebook or windows guessing connectivity issues but the only one where it just freezes the app is in android 9: one plus 6t
