I'm very new to Premier 6 but seem to have grasped the basics. Can anyone point me in the right direction to create a video noise effect for a Premier 6 clip? I need to add hairs, scratches, dust and film fade in a random fashion.

I have been told there is a Film Noise Filter API for Mac QuickTime and this sounds like to sort of thing I'm trying to with Premier.

Thanks kindly in advance for any pointers.

Hi there,

If you apply the 'Quicktime effects' filter to your video clip, a box pops up asking what kind of effect you want to apply. One of these should do you for dust and scratches as well as a bit of film grain and decolouring (B&W or Sepia).

It will probably take a good while to render and I can't vouch for the results, but a basic 'beaten-up old film' effect should be do-able. If you want to go further there are more advanced plug-ins available (such as FilmFX) which actually simulate proper film stocks.

Hope this helps.

Hi Sharkey,

Many thanks for this lead. I was looing for a bit more realism than the 'Quicktime effects' so FilmFX is a great lead and very much appreciated.

Cheers for now,

Oscar.
