samples of "Movie Looks"

Hello everyone,
I downloaded the "Movie Looks" free plugins for Adobe Premiere Pro. I tried them out, and liked a couple of the effects. So I decided to buy the Movie Looks Library (40 plugins for $50).
Very good bargin; worth the money. It gives you very nice looks, with one-click of a button. I exported few frames as samples (wait for the pictures to load):

One downside about it: it takes alot of time to render (about 2-3 minutes for a 3-second video).

by the way, nothing else was added to the video besides the "movie looks" plugin.

Equipment: Canon XL1s + 16x Manual Servo lens

Thanks for posting those test clips. They look really nice and all from within premiere pro. Sweet. :) The original clip looks good just on its own also.

If you have a demo copy of after effects and a demo of magic bullet for AE, then you can create and save new presets in AE, then drop them into your movie looks preset folder and they work. Apparently.

Kieran,
I actually have After Effects 6 (I bought the Adobe video collection). Now I'm wondering if it's worth it to buy Magic Bullet for $1000, just for the deinterlacer! The Movie looks does a great job, so all I need is a deinterlacer now.
I downloaded the demo of MB. I'll try it out and see if it's worth the money.

reelsmart do a standalone de-interlacer that's around $99.

From what I understand Fieldskit renders quicker, but there's no deartifacting.. But MB's a little out of my price range so I mostly play around with the demo and try and match the looks with levels, curves and transfer modes instead :o)

does anyone know if there's a difference between Fieldskit deinterlacer and Premiere's one ? I don't wanna spend $90 on the Fieldskit and find out that it does the same job of Premiere.

Man, those look sweet....However I'd like to see the effects on a shot that looks less filmish to begin with. The original was very well shot, and that might be why the effects did such a good job.

Well Corey. The whole idea is to get a good photage from the beginning otherwise you will get exactly what you put it. That is - garbage in - garbage out. You read most of the post on this issue.In order to get great film look you have to shoot like you were going to shoot on film. Regardless of what program you use to enhance the look. My understanding, anyway.

Does anyone know if these will work on Final Cut Pro 4? Or if there's anything similar to that available for FCP4?

The shots look great, by the way. I especially like Bleach Bypass, Color Reversal, and Berlin. Great job!

Take a look at my site, www.nattress.com for Film Effects for Final Cut Pro, which has lots of nice film presets, and 24p, and film dissolves in the new V1.1 release.

I was hoping they had something for premiere 6.5
I have AE 6.0 Production also but $1000 for MB is a bit out of my reach when all I really want to do is the cool presets that can be had for $49

Do I have to upgrade to pro or someone know of another option for 6.5?
