Default Tail light tint : tinting film or tinting paint ?

Hey guys, im plannin to tint my tail lights for the summer.

i dont want the tail light really blacked out, i still want to see the 'outline' between the turning lights + reverse light and the break lights.

as the title said, film or paint?
i have seem many DIY videos about spray painting the tail lights using black paint and clear coat
i have also seen many DIY videos about tinting the lights with the tint film.

so all you enthusiasts out there, which one is better off for the long run:
Paint, or film ??
