DxO FilmPack is based on measurements of real films using DxO Labs' great expertise with image processing. The shape and size of the grain, for instance, are taken from the original films, so simulations are much more realistic than with Nik Collection. DxO FilmPack integrates seamlessly into DxO PhotoLab and can work with RAW Files of supported cameras. On the other hand, Nik Collection offers a set of very different tools apart from the simulation of analog films. For many of our users, it is not a question of either / or, as both pieces of software are an important part of their photographic post-processing workflow.
