I was wondering, if any of you guys know of a plugin to AE which makes a similar effect like the one shown on the picture. I guess it's some kind of light effect on an old cine movie

Hope to hear from any of you guys

Hmm.. looks to me like someone put a colored solid over top and switch the transfer mode to add? (maybe played w/ the opacity a bit?)

Other than that, PLUG IN wise, theres "Film Magic Pro" from

I don't know of any others. (Sry I'm a bit of a noob :P ).

Not hard.

Add a LEVELS to your layer.

Raise the OUTPUT BLACK to about 30 (or to taste, depending on the shot)

Switch the Channel tab to RED (from RGB)
Increase the RED OUTPUT BLACK to about 60 (or to taste)

Ta da.
