For all help and discussion relating to visual effects in programs that are not already covered in an existing forum, such as Blender, Particle Illusion, etc., along with discussion about effects theories and techniques.
Ok, i confess. I've been making amv's for years. And still, i haven't found ANY old film effects apart from those Vegas was giving me. White scratches, burned film effects, any plugins you can suggest to me? By the way, I don't want to mess with grungy layers and stuff like that
You can actually do this in avisynth. There is a thread on doom9 for this kinda thing but take a look at the manual for addgrainc for adding scratches and vertical lines. Burn marks can be done with a combination of blur and masking over addgrainc with tweak as well, but there are more advanced techniques I can't remember for that particular effect. Tweak and the animate functions are good for doing slight brightness changes, or the flicker plugin if you want to be lazy. Other effects can be done such as variable cropping to have that vague shaking effect that loose projector wheels have. There are a few old vdub filters which you can look at as well.
I absolutely hate it when people do this effect because 99% of the time they will use a canned and synthetic effect that looks obvious and fake. If you want a real authentic old film look, go find stock footage of it and overlay it into your source (there are free resources). You'll get way better results.
Like the AMV .Org App? Think about donating to help me make it better.
stock overlays...a poorer old-film-like u can get with vegas only..maybe with new-blue effects, yet those you have there are probably pre-made and overlayed....yes it was a significant part in Spoil..yet afterwards every luttle action clip has similar addings to it
