How To Fake Super 8 Film Look In Premiere Pro

Step-By-Step How To Use our Free Super Template

You’ll need to have downloaded the Super 8 Overlay template. When you do download it, make sure you sign up to the mailing list when you check out so I can fill your inbox with spam, not really it’ll be with more of these presets and the occasional picture of Pete’s head. 

Now you’ve got that downloaded, you’ll have a zip folder filled with awesomeness. Open this up, inside you’ll have a PP file and a layers folder, PLEASE don’t mess with the layers folder it’s important to stay as it is! 

If you want to create a whole video with this look just open this project up. You’ll see that Video layer 1 is empty you simply place your video footage here and boom, you got yourself an oldie-world home movie. You can extend the length of the effect by copy and pasting the layers you see in the timeline, making sure they join together with no gaps. 

Now if you want to have a segment of your existing edit to have this effect, it’s still possible but slightly more complicated.

In your project Bin, right click import, find the Super 8 template project and click on that. Then click “Import Selected Sequences” & for ease select “Create Folder For Imported Items”. Premiere Pro will load for a second and then you can select the Super 8 Template Sequence and hit ok.

You’ll then have the sequence and layers in a folder inside your project bin. Simply double click on the sequence and it will open a second timeline for you to drop your footage into. Once it contains the footage you want to effect and is the correct length you can close this sequence. 

Then moving back to your project bin simply drag your super 8 sequence into your main videos timeline. 

That’s it a Drag and drop Super 8 effect for all your projects.

As I said at the start we’ll be doing one of these hopefully every week so please make sure you subscribe to keep up to date and show your love for your laziness with a thumbs up or even a comment, how exciting!
