Re-creating old 80's anime look in Premiere Pro CC
on Sep 28, 2016 at 8:57:50 pm

Hello!

I've got an anime short that I'm working on and I'm trying to emulate, as close as I can, the look of an 80's anime. I know that they were done on cells and hand drawn but I really like that look! I'm including a few shots from the 1986 Transformers movie to help illustrate what I'm going for and below is a a quick shot from my anime short.

Thanks in advance! :)

Hmmmm.... are you talking about editing the animated footage in PP?
Because you certainly can't CREATE animated footage like that in PP.

Hello!

No, I mean more like trying to emulate that sort of "washed out and aged" look in PP. How would I accomplish this?

I don't think you'd need PP for this. You're the making the animation from scratch. You decide about the colors. If you want the colors to look washed out, just make them washed out. No intervention in PP necessary.
Here's an artistic plus by creating the colors you want as you create the artwork: you control the INDIVIDUAL colors very precisely. When you color grade, you change all the colors in the image. It can be quite difficult to leave individual colors alone when color grading. More time. More effort. Why do that when you can get it right the first time?

It was more about having a blanket effect after all the artwork is finished to have that desired effect. Like a filter.

Okay, then Lumetri Color is what you want. It comes with preset color grading looks, and you can make your own. It's an integral part of PP.

Red Giant's VHS look, a plugin for Premiere, may help get the look you want.

Do what I do, and play around with the Color Correction effects. I always try to recreate the look of old, 35mm, technicolor film for my work, and I found that going into Color Correction and increasing the Brightness and Contrast, as well as increasing the Saturation under Fast Color Corrector, and adding just a hint of noise (not to mention rendering and exporting at 24 fps instead of 29.97), I find that I can get passable results: not exactly perfect, but close enough for jazz.
