By "Super 8" look do you mean the "scratched-and-fading-film-stored-in-the-attic-trunk-for-many-years" look?

Well there is a plethora of AE plug-ins, some of which can dirty-up your footage very well. I've seen examples of several but haven't used any myself.

Adobe has a pretty good list of plug-in vendors on their site at:

http://www.adobe.com/products/plugins/aftereffects/main.html

Quicktime Pro also has some dirtying features built-in, although some have noted that it doesn't look that convincing.

I'd recommend experimenting on a short clip manually with some of AE's built-in facilities before investing several hundred dollars on a 3rd party product that you might not need very often.

I edit with a PC-based Canopus system which includes a great "old movie" filter for accomplishing this exact effect.

Chris... Canopus has their own NLE? I wouldn't mind seeing a short Quicktime or a DivX of the filter in action. I know it's not 24fps, but that's OK :) I just wanna see what the different filters are capable of. The Cinelook filter for After Effects does a pretty good job, but you have no choice but to have your colors tinted when using the "Film Damage" mode. It turns sepia or faded color, and I can't find a way to keep the color. It also doesn't let you have emulsion scratches, which are usually yellow or green.
