Free VHS Effect Presets and Tutorial

BY LOGAN BAKER, Premiumbeat

In this video tutorial, learn how to create a retro VHS look entirely with Adobe Premiere Pro. Includes free VHS effect presets!

This nostalgic style was one of 2019’s biggest creative trends, and it remains just as popular today.

Most VHS look tutorials rely on After Effects, and then sending your footage back into Premiere Pro. If you’re not experienced with After Effects — or are just in a hurry — this can slow your workflow. However, in this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create a VHS-inspired look entirely using Premiere Pro. We’ll even look at how we can add imperfections to the footage that would usually require work in After Effects.

Now, it’s important to note: This is not a VHS overlay, meaning you won’t be placing a clip on top of your footage, rather, we’re going to learn how to manipulate the image you’ve shot. This will give you more room to tweak the image in a much more intricate way that’s meant to work closer with the information and colors in your shot.
