never used premiere in my life, but im sure you can do this. Take your footage, and then put a duplicate of it onto a layer above it. So identical footage on two layers, set the top layer's blending mode, or composite mode, to hard light, then adjust the layers opacity down to roughly 55%, it all depends on the footage, but this will bring out some nicer looks, heres an example.

its not the best of examples, i just thought i would do it quickly while i wait up tonight.

or were you thinking more like these?

http://homepage.mac.com/rpflo/tests.jpg if so, magic bullet does it, all you need is to buy it for $1000 and adobe after effects, so.. if you've got the money for it, which i dont, then there you have it.

hope this helps some

Arthur, if your refering to Riley's second example, Adobe offers a free plug in for Premiere Pro that will give you ten different "film effects." They take a while to render, but they're well worth it. Just register your copy of PPro and they will link you to the download.

Just got these plugins. Some of them look fantastic. Makes me want to buy the rest of them. Do you think maybe that was the point? ;)

Anyway, thanks for the link!

I hate to speak when I don't know all the facts, but...

Unless Premiere Pro has changed significantly from 6.5 (I have 6.5 and not Pro), then Riley's first example cannot be used in Premiere. Premiere does not have blending modes (not in 6.5 at least)

It can be done in After Effects, though, and AE is a great tool for color correction.

I've also done nominal color correction using "Levels" in Premiere 6.5 with some success (particularly one time when I had to remove the green tint from flourescent lighting from some footage)
