Post-production software creators Red Giant Software and Crumplepop have teamed up to produce Carousel, a vintage film emulator for FCPX.
The ‘vintage film look’ continues to be all the rage, what with Instagram. Hipstamatic and other photo emulators. It’s no surprise then that video has followed suit, with content creators looking to give their pristine HD footage a retro film look (a bit ironic, don’t you think?)
Red Giant’s technical expertise and Crumplepop’s proficiency for creating FCPX plugins have combined to create Carousel – vintage film effects for Final Cut Pro X that are high quality and easy to use. These retro camera looks have an organic quality because they were actually created “using film prints from a toy camera and 120 film.” You’ll see the imperfections and light leaks from the prints they were created from, giving an even more realistic effect.
Drag and drop one of the 10 Carousel looks onto your footage in FCPX and then tweak the parameters for a custom vintage look. Hipsters rejoice!
