Scanlines in Premiere?

Nov 22, 2009 8:25 AM

I was wondering if it was possible to do this in Premiere Pro CS3.

I have seen several videos with them, but no tutorials anywhere.

Could anyone answer this question for me?

Thanks.

    Check out the Grid effect; you can use it to achieve the effect pretty easily. Assuming a 720x480 DV composition, start with parameters such as these, and tweak to taste:

     

    • Anchor: -20, 240
    • Size from: Width and Height Sliders
    • Width: 740
    • Height: vary according to how dense you'd like the scanlines to appear
    • Border: vary according to how thick you'd like the scanlines to appear
    • Feather: vary Height to soften the lines, and eliminate some of the jitter that might be created on interlaced video displays
    • Color: set to taste
    • Opacity: set to taste
    • Blending Mode: set to taste, but Overlay is a good one to start with

     

    Note that you can animate the Anchor's Y-value to create movement/flicker if that's the look you're seeking.

     

    Here's a quick sample of the look you can create :

    Great post.  I've been wondering how to accomplish this ever since I switched from FCP 6 months ago.  Sometimes it's a real time saver not to have to link to AE.  Thanks Colin.
