“Vintage FX” is a preset pack for After Effects and Premiere Pro containing 33 professional presets. Each custom preset color corrects your footage, making it look vintage and retro. I made these using basic effects that are built into the programs, so there’s no need to purchase high-end plugins or 3rd party applications. There are lots of different effects and styles, made with different purposes in mind. Some are warm and faded, others are dark and contrasty.
I made sure to keep skin-tones a priority in every effect, to preserve the natural colors of skin. So, even with the most drastic presets, the skin-tones are still accurate.
The cool thing about using these kind of effects, is that every preset reacts differently to each piece of footage. A bright clip with lots of highlights will react different from a darker clip with less saturation. So you can play with all the presets to find the exact “look” that you’re wanting.
There are also some “extras” in the preset pack as well, like:
- a lomofi slider, to fine-tune your lomo and get the perfect amount of “retro” in your footage. (AE only)
- add dirt and grime to your footage. (AE only)
- add flicker and grain to mimic old film. (AE only)
- quick and easy vignettes as well as an adjustable vignette.
- light leaks using the 4-color gradient effect. (AE only)
There is also an extra preset called “Basic Fade,” which basically gives your footage that nice “faded” look. This is a great start to build on and create your own custom effects.
There you have it ladies and gentlemen, all this for only $8! You can pay via credit card or PayPal.
