Old Timey effect with Vignette Filter?

Can I get a little help copying the effects in this video?:

I'm referring to the intro effects at the beginning (introductions with names). The guy who made this told me he got this effect purely with the Vignette filter but I can't seem to get the same blown out, old-timey look despite playing with the filters. He said he adjusted the levels then set "Mix" to 50 to get just that subtle hint of color. Any ideas? Thanks!

Try using the 3-way color corrector. Crush the blacks, lower the saturation a lot and boost mids &/or highs. Play around with those controls and you should get close.

Thanks, I will try that next time. It turns out the info I got was bad, it wasn't the Vignette filter all along, it was Threshold. Should've known. Thanks though.

I another way to create a similar, but more stylized look is to check out the Color Reduce filter. Best of luck.
