10 Vintage Camera Looks

Carousel captures the classic look of color cross-processing, film fading, and vignettes. Authenticity was key in development. Each look was created using film prints from a toy camera and 120 film, with care taken to preserve the color profile and unique flaws in the prints that came back from the lab. On top of that, Carousel features optically-captured light leaks to complete the unique feel of using a vintage plastic camera.

Drag and Drop

Simply go to the Effects area in FCP X and drag one of the 10 vintage presets 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.

Completely Customizable

Nearly every detail in Carousel is customizable, from the color and flicker of the light leak to the style and size of the vignette. If you like, you can customize the color, light leaks, fading, and vignette to your liking to create hundreds of different looks. With Carousel you can capture the exact look you need for your project.
