Adding grain?

Hi there,

I'm looking for a cheap (free if possible!) way of adding grain to some footage.

I have footage of an event from two cameras: One was shot on a small camcorder in low-light mode, resulting in approximately half the frames but quite a clean image.

The other was shot on an XL1s with the gain turned up and the iris closed down for a grainy effect.

I'm trying to edit the two together, but obviously the look of them both is just too different.

How can I add grain to the "clean" footage to make it match better? I currently use Studio8, but is this something Premiere could do for me?

Thanks!

Got it - Premiere - added noise at 30%, and de-saturated the colour, found that gave the footage a close enough match.
