Hey guys, I have CS3 and an Intel Q9550 @ 3.4 Ghz PC set up. I am working on an HDV project. My files are .m2t files brought in through HDV Split. Anyway, below are the main four shots of the Teaser Trailer I just captured. I have After Effects and can probably get my hands on Combustion or Magic Bullet, but I'd rather do everything in Premiere Pro. What suggestions do you have in regards to color correction and film grain? You can use the images if you want to mess around in Photoshop with to show me examples if you need to. THANKS!!!
You can do it all right in Premiere using Magic Bullet Colorista and Looks. (Looks comes with the Misfire plug-in, which is excellent for adding film 'damage' to clean video - including grain, hairs, scratches, splotches, funk, gate weave, and many more. Each paremeter is fully adjustable, from "off" all the way to "What the hell happened to my reel!?".)
For "film grain," I assume that you wish to ADD it. If so, Jim has nailed it.
If you wish to remove it from, say an underlite, underexposed Clip, then Neat Video is the tool for that.
