Night effect

I was wondering..those old black and white movies where they wanted a night time sequence but shot during the day, with the sun low in the sky and well, i dont know how but i assume they used filters and increased the contrast in the processing. Does anyone know more specifically how this was done how it might be tried digitally.

Just google search your NLE and "day for night" you should get some kind of good tutorial or filter, there is one filter for Final Cut that does this, basically thought it just increases the contrast and desaturates the colors a bit while giving it a blue tint search the articles at www.videomaker.com as well they have a few articles on the day for night effect.

A long time ago I read where they used B&W infra-red film.
As to whether it is true or not I do not know.

Together with underexposure it gives very good results, as clear skies go black, and foilage is very light. Colour made for a complete rethink by Hollywood, and I don't find the underexposed "blue" scenes too convincing. Better to underexpose, make "cold" rather than blue, and desaturate.
