About the Red Giant retrograde film stock

The Red Giant Retrograde Film Stock Emulation Software gives you the look of real 8mm and 16mm film stocks, right inside Final Cut Pro X. By simply dragging and dropping Retrograde onto your clip, you can quickly create the iconic look of Cold War-era home movies. Real analog source material was used to create the unique film textures in Retrograde, which means that you can create the true color, grain and damage of old 8mm and 16mm films. Co-produced with CrumplePop, Red Giant's Retrograde plug-in is the best solution to create your favorite vintage film look. Motion Media, LLC carries the entire line of Red Giant Software for all your digital media manipulation needs.

Real film stocks
By creating laser scans of old, commonly used film stocks, CrumplePop was able to capture the actual grain patterns, color profiles and exposure flaws in old Kodak and Fuji film. When you apply Retrograde to your clip in Final Cut Pro X, what you are seeing is actual film texture: a look that is impossible to create from scratch digitally. The robotic-looking contrast and color space of digital video disappears and the milky, faded and bizarrely punchy look of old 8mm and 16mm film emerges. After dragging and dropping and making a few adjustments, your footage is transformed into something that belongs to another era.

12 film stock emulations
Retrograde includes 6 types of 8mm film stock and 6 types of 16mm film stock. Whether you want to create the brown, contrasty look of the early 1970's or the grainy green of 1950's educational films, Retrograde makes it a fairly simple process. Just drag, drop and tweak to your liking. All without leaving Final Cut Pro X.

Drag and drop
Simply go to the Effects Browser in FCP X and drag one of the 12 film stocks onto your clip. If you have a relatively new Mac (even an iMac or Mac Mini), you can play back your clip in real time, no waiting to render.

Nearly every detail in Retrograde is customizable, from the amount of hair and blotches on the film to the amount of grain, to the style and size of the vignette. If you like, you can customize the elements to create hundreds of different looks. With Retrograde you can dial in the precise mood of the era you are aiming to capture. Works inside Final Cut Pro X
Retrograde was designed from the ground up for FCP X. Because it is an FCP X effect, it can be dropped onto your footage and previewed in real time, no need to wait for rendering. Retrograde for FCP X contains powerful controls that allow you to stylize your footage extremely quickly.
