I'm trying to match footage I have to a 70's film. Does anyone know of a plugin that will do this effect or steps to match it in Sony Vegas 12? I've seen the Red Giant VHS which would be great for 80's but it doesn't work for what I need. I do not have After Effects so it would have to be done in Vegas itself. Thanks in advance for any help.
Here is a link to the 'Shaft' trailer on Youtube to show what i'm after:

You could just grade it yourself, and then you would have a filter preset to apply to other footage.
I see pretty much a clean film exposure with daylight film, a Kodak 35mm grain overlay at 24p, dirt layer, Vignette layer, and then playing with the CC until your look matches. Using a still frame from the movie that matches your rough camera angle, then use split screen to show both. CC until the left matches the right.
There are various sites that you can download 35mm grain to composite overlay on your footage. Do not use the Sony plug in. YouTube has videos on how to do this.
The Sony Soft Contrast filter in combination with others above will get you close.
