Globe Trekker look
 
I have just moved over to the Mac (MacPro & Macbook Pro) after many years using PPro, can I say that here? Anyway it's a steep learning curve having to learn all about Final Cut, I have FCE 3.5 and have just bought a second hand copy of Final Cut Pro 5.0 from someone who's packed up editing.

So my question is, what filter do I need to get the effect they use in the Globe trekker programmes, it's where the footage looks like it's been filmed on a cine camera, speeded up slightly and then a sort of cross processed look, with added noise, or can anyone suggest any custom settings using the filters already in the panel.

Thanks, Carl

Like the old 8mm/super 8 film Carl? I know what you mean and always thought this was 8mm...but it's possibly an effect plug in?

That's the look, 8mm. You may be right about it being shot on 8mm, but Is it possible to emulate that look or something similar using filters in FC.

There must be some plug ins out there Carl - Nattress will probably do them:

Also - check this linkie it's AE (and on a PC by the looks of it) but it will give you the idea.

It's Super-8 film. The cameras are pretty easy to pick up second-hand. The film stock is harder to find. Ian Cross (Executive Producer and Host) said they use about 5 minutes worth of the stuff in each episode.

You can't really approximate that look and get it right without shooting on the format itself.

Thanks for the info Eric. I've actually got a Super-8 film camera, in fact I think I may have a couple in the attic somewhere! Might source some film and have a play.

WHen I had my PC built I had a Matrox RTX100 card which had some great effects which were'nt to far off, but the machine was so unstable I gave up on it a couple of years ago, shame really, but one of the reasons i've moved to Mac's.

I have a super 8mm but how do you get the footage into your system?

Eric Darling June 12th, 2008 02:51 PM

Telecine to your favorite video format at a colorist/film house. They are in all major cities - you're looking for a "wet gate" transfer to get the prettiest look.

Hey Eric, just found a free plug at www.cgm-online.com go to the download area and it's in there "CGM Aged Film LE. Although this doesn't have all the features in the pro version i've just done a very reasonable look on a clip. More than happy with it and ideal for what I need. No need to go up in the loft for the old cine camera.

~There's also a demo video on how to get the best look.

Carl
