Old crappy film effect?

I'd like some scratchy jumpy grainy 70's film effect. Preferable for final cut, cheap or free if possible. I could also use After Effects and Motion, but I'd just like to slap it on and quickly render it, with a few adjustments. Thanks alot for any help.

If you need it fast and free, and have access to a PC, then good ole' Windows Movie Maker has a film age effect in three flavors, old, older, and oldest.

Use VirtualDub (or VirtualDub-MPEG2 if not using an intermediate codec like Cineform) and the *free* VirtualDub MSU OldCinema Filter:

Edit: Just saw that you wanted this for FCP (Mac). So, this won't help. Sorry.

On a mac, there's a quicktime plugin that comes standard called "aged film" does a pretty good job...I used it on my short "Hassegeschichte" found in my portfolio on my website.

Thanks! I wouldn't have noticed that. I'm testing it out now.

Reshoot it in 35mm and scratch it all to hell.
all kidding aside there was a thread lower down on the page where someone posted a great film effect, you may want to look there.

also if you have the latest imovie, export your fcp file to quicktime, load it into imovie, then re-export it back into fcp if you have more editing to do, it isnt spectacular, but it gets the job done
