Need more information about Quicktime "Old Movie"
I am not entirely sure if it is a filter, or a program, but I have seen many references to the Quicktime "Aged Film" effect, but I have never fully understood what it is, or where a person could get it.
Or what programs it works with, etc.

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

If its the same one I'm thinking of, I believe it came with Premiere, although it might have come from downloading QuickTime, and downloaded its self into the premiere folder.

The filter enables you to create a 'fake' film effect. I.e. allowing you to add scratches, hair and dust, sepia tone, black and white, fade film and 1930's colour. Although the scratches are in white, I am told that real scratches on film should be black.

The QT filter also enables you to add other effects other than film effect like emboss, lens flare and fire.

The filter is pretty good; I used it for one of my productions. You can read more at the tread 'how to create a cine film effect', in this forum.

Hope this helps,

Ed Smith

With Premier sort of the de facto standard in its price range, I am left out of the loop on a lot of things.

I am using MediaStudio Pro, and I like it a lot, but I do see that a lot of plug ins are designed specifically for Premier.

I may buy After Effects, because I am quite interested in Cinelook.

I was asking about the Quicktime filter/program because I also wanted a less extensive film look, too.

the plug-in is included in the quicktime pro package ($30 from apple) and is confusingly called "film noise". I think it only works in the quicktime player as an export filter. There are several options and controls to allow you to adjust the amount of dust and scratches it adds to your movie.

Overall I think it looks kind of cheesy, the scratches are just opaque white lines with none of the artifacts of a real scratch. The dust looks pretty good.
