Free aged film plug-in for FCP released

updated 10:15 am EDT, Wed August 16, 2006

Free aged film FCP plug-in has released CGM Aged Film LE, a free Final Cut Pro/Express (FCP) plug-in designed to make video look more like film. CGM Aged Film LE simulates 35mm film as well as aged film with shaking, jumping, scratches, dirt, hair, gamma, brightness flickering, and more. The plug-in features a "Variation" slider which selects various default settings for the filter, while "Stripes" allows users to define the frequency and amount of striping inherent to damaged film. "Grain" changes the size and visibility of film grain with two modes to simulate duplicated, converted film as well as video scanned directly from film. A "Trapped Hair" slider simulates old, dirty film while a "Tint" option allows users to simulate the age or mood of film. CGM Aged Film LE is available for free, and requires Final Cut Pro or Final Cut Express.

    I just downloaded and tried this free download, and it's SWEET! I'm no video pro, so this is the first plug-in I've ever added to FCP. But I've always wanted this exact aged look, so I'm happy as a clam!
