Creating a Vintage Effect in Adobe Premiere
Step 1: Create your video
I would recommend creating a duplicate so you still have the original and don’t have to apply the effects to each clip individually.
Step 2: Open the “Color Correction” Folder
Drag RGB Curves, Color Balance (HLS) and Brightness & Contrast effects onto the new sequence. By moving around the RGB curves you’ll get a warm color tone over the footage. By toning down the vibrancy of the color adjustments with the Saturation option of the Color Balance (HLS) effect the warm tone will turn to sepia. Finally, play around with the brightness and contrast until you’re happy with the picture.
And you’re done!
Optional: Add A Texture
Overlays in photoshop really help give the image a vintage feel. I quick way to do the same is to download this free scratch video : http://www.flashkit.com/movies/Effects/Film_Scr-Bert_Gra-7692/index.php Or for a better quality I would recommend something like this: http://videohive.net/item/film-damage/2641702?WT.ac=category_thumb&WT.seg_1=category_thumb&WT.z_author=automaton
In order to use either of these you just have to overlay the footage, and adjust the opacity of the scratch track.
