Pick your clip or picture in Premiere and goto video-->adjust-->color balance. Bring the red all the way up and the green and blue all the way down. It should give you a similar effect.

Desaturate your colours... make it black and white.

Turn the contrast up to your liking.

....dang, can't figure out the last step. My photoshop skills are severely lacking tonite, need...more sleep.

who wants to finish it up?

Or in photoshop do the Hue thin its ctrl-H it brings up the menue of Hue and there is a little check box at the bottom that says colorize then change the ballance and stuff and you should get it see image.

Jeez people, way to be as un-helpful as possible.

Desaturate your image.

Add film grain.

Increase the contrast.

Tint it red.

They're both kind of the same, but my way is more general, and can be applied to both video and pictures.

And, if you have AE, this will work on video footage too.

ALL OF THEM!

C'mon kid, think for yourself!

Every program out there offers features to do what I said. You just need to learn the basics. Go read some tutes, and don't ask us to find them for you.

I put together a short little test in photoshop using Sidey's method. Pretty much exactly what your looking for if you ask me.


Here is my original picture. Scary, innit? razz


First step is desaturating it. This can be done in Photoshop by going to Image > Adjust > Hue/Saturation


Next we add some film grain. You'll get different results by playing with the sliders. Film grain can be found in Filter > Artistic > Film Grain.


Now we adjust the contrast to makes things a little more 'contrasty' razz. You can do this in Image > Adjust > Brightness/Contrast



Add some color by going to Image > Adjust > Color Balance and beefing up the Red in Highlights, Midtones, and Shadows. Whala, we're done!

Any questions? biggrin

Nice one flip. The only trick is to not have any white, but only red and black.

Can you do that?

sry its just that as long as you know...... if you're not allowed to post questions on the forums, no matter how stupid, then they're not good for much else, are they?
