    Editing explanation (film burns)

    Someone explain why using lots of film burns in your edit is a good idea.

    I just want to understand the appeal. Please make your case.

    it isn't.

    except if you really wish to have a broken film camera and want to simulate it.

    otherwise its mostly a poor attempt to cover bad footage/bad editing

    on the otherside...everybody (myself also) has to use all the filters in the tools at least once XD

    same on timewarpeffects (twixtor is no magic wand)
    if you use it wrong it looks just plain horrible.

    but thats all part of the learning process

        Why so many graphic designers use rugged fonts, spilled paint look etc.? Why do people wear faded, torn jeans? Why Fuji and Leica make retro looking cameras? Why film grain is often considered a good thing?

        It's a matter of certain aesthetics. I thought film burn looked cool until everyone started overusing it.


        Worst mistakes in my opinion are:
        - using color film burn on black and white clips (the fuck...)
        - using vivid orange and red film burn that clearly came from the sun on night clips in artificial light.

            worst is, they weren't even used right in that edit. they were just faded to and from. I've used them before - the way you make them look right is to screen or overlay them somehow (I did it in after effects with transforms- mad easy).

              Do you mind posting your example of using it tastefully if it's already online?
