I need to add some effects to footage to make it look like it was shoot on super 8 film. Id also like any advice on maybe making the image seem as though projected on the screen. I need to really push the old film effect, so film scratches, hair, film burns, edge effects anything would really help. The footage I am editing is HD shot using a P2 camera. I am using a mac with AE CS3 as well as Final Cut Pro.

Super 8, as I recall, runs at 18 frames/sec. That's just a screwy stinkin' frame rate for NTSC. For the simulated Super 8 footage, I suggest exporting from FCP at 15fps. Yes, it can be done.

You can use a wiggle expression to simulate projector lamp flicker.

Here's a trick to simulate film that drifts in the gate:
add three instances of the footage, and position one layer above and one below the layer still positioned at dead-center. Then parent them to the dead-center one. Now add a slow wiggle expression to the dead-center layer's vertical position.

this thing is interessing me too
but, sorry for my bad english, but I don't understand what you mean by "dead center" ...

What treatment should be applied to the footage to obtain the specific color and aspect of super8 film

thanks in advance

[Emmanuel Gobert] "I don't understand what you mean by "dead center" ..."

Oh, I'm sorry.... I'm simply talking about three identical pieces of footage: one layer's y value changes so that it is above, one layer's y value is changed so that is below, and one layer's position does not change. It remains where it was placed, in the exact center -- or dead center -- of the comp window.

I'm not very much help in figuring out how to color grade footage to look like Super 8. Sorry again.
