Hey guys it’s Temple here and in today’s episode, I’m teaching you guys how to create these film effects in Final Cut Pro. If you’ve been a part of this community for a longer period of time and you’ve seen my videos, you’ve most likely noticed that I really enjoy a good film look to my footage. I’m talking light leaks and different grains or film frames that I can put over my footage. I love them all and if you’ve been wondering how in the world do I create them, well today’s your lucky day because I’m going to show you just how quick and easy they are to create. For all these filmic looks, I’m using motion vfx’s and film map pack which is the best plug-in if you want to create filmic looks for your footage.

Using M Film Matte Plug-in Pack

In the M film matte plug-in pack, there are essentially three different categories. First, we have the mats which are essentially like film frames that you can put on top of your footage to create a cool filmic frame. There are 20 of them in this pack with different categories for one clip, two clips, and three clips together. Next, we have the overlay effects which include blurring, light leaks, burns, grains, and more. Lastly, there are typography categories with five different titles that give a nice, cool filmic retro title feel to your footage. Using the mats is as simple as dragging and dropping it onto your footage and then customizing it to fit your desired look.

Customizing Overlay Effects

Now that we’ve talked about the filmic mat and how to put it over the footage, let’s explore the overlay effects. There are 12 different effects including blurring, burns, film dirt, grain, light leaks, sprocket hole, and more. These effects can be easily added to your footage by dragging and dropping them, and then customizing them to fit your desired look. With each effect, there are various adjustments that can be made such as blurring strength, color, size, and more, allowing you to create a customized and unique filmic look for your footage.

Ultimately, using plug-in packs like M film matte from motion vfx can speed up your editing workflow and give your footage a professional, filmic look without spending hours on effects. By utilizing these plug-ins, you can easily add filmic frames, overlay effects, and typography to your footage, creating a visually appealing and cinematic look.
