Examples

Let’s consider results of the filter on a test sequence “Foreman”.

Frame from film
source frame from "Foreman"sequence
after Filter
after MSU Old Cinema, use "Yellow shift" color correction

The next example demonstrates the usage of the “Real old cinema” preset. Certainly, you can adjust the amount of noise, spot, scratches and other types of artifacts regardless of the preset as every film features its own adjustments.
