Can anyone help me with creating this old school film effect?

The colors are basically leaking



Nirvana's you know you're right has also lots of similar footages

Y'know, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to learn that to get that effect, they played the shot down in an NLE and shot the video monitor.

It was very common practice at the time.... and it's not tough at all to misadjust a monitor until you think to yourself, "That looks cool......"

So basically capturing a video on a monitor with a camera?

Amazing effects can be done like this, never thought of it before.

As they say, necessity is the mother of invention. Furthermore, once you had the monitor misadjusted to your taste, all those cool color effects could be recorded in real time! Woo Hoo!

In the '90's, AE easily could have taken 20-30 seconds PER FRAME to render out a slug of color effects piled up on a clip. Ugh.

That made me think of rendering out Lightwave scenes to image files, then transferring onto tape using a single frame controller. Watching the computer slowly, every so SLOWLY, render one scan line at a time.

Gak.

This means that you must remember when 3D animation applications controlled a video deck, and when the frame was ready, it would make a single-frame insert edit. You kept the deck going overnight all the time, and for days at a time in some instances.

Those are days everyone is glad to forget.
