If I render out to DV AVI 24p and then to PAL DVD or PAL SVCD,the look is so strobed because of 24p-25p loss. I hope you understand what I mean. Anyway,thank you very much!
Do not do this. Don't go from 25p -> 24p -> 25p. That does not maky any
sense and will introduce a lot of problems with strobing and quality loss. You
can't see the difference between 25p & 24p when it is being played, projected.

Hi again,Glenn!!!
I tried your suggestions already and I have to say that they are MORE then grate!!! Of course,I did some corrections and some other adjustments,and it is normal to be so. But all I have to say at all is: Glenn,your tutorials are EXACTLY about film look reaching as a base. The result of your expierence just kills the hard work of MagicBullet,UltimateS,Cineform,FilmFX/for Adobe/ and many more. It is so good that there are a people like you! Thank you once again and keep in touch and tutoring!!! Special greetings to you from Bulgaria!

I used the color curves filter and did the "s" thing. There were lots of highlights in the picture, so I had to tweak the top part of the curve by adding an additional point and not making it so flat there.

Next step: Color corrector filter, saturation at 1.694
Next: Saturation adjust, amount -0.2020
center 0.296
spread 1
low 0.34
high -0.3260

Superimposed layer (adds diffusion):
the video contains the same filters... TIP Hold crtl and move a clip with your mouse to copy the clip onto an upper track.

Track opacity = 50%
Gaussian blur added on top
Used secondary color corrector to isolate flesh tones. Alpha = 0

These were track FX... color corrector first, then gaussian blur (alpha box checked).

In another veg, I used secondary CC on skin tones to isolate them. Then I blurred them or something, and brought them back into the project as takes to the clips.

Some shots use simulated graduated filters.
Add a color gradient to an upper track.
Set compositing mode to ?dodge?
Adjust track opacity to change strength of effect.

Some shots used secondary color correction to bring down the yellow in the actresses' teeth.
Could you pull off the same look in Adobe Premiere 6.5? That would be wicked killer if you could.

Trevor,
No you can't.

Premiere Pro is better than the old version in that it has color curves. However, it still has no secondary color correction.
