Ratings and Reviews
Shooting movies on film may be a dying art, but just because we live in the digital age doesn’t mean we have to abandon our analog past. We get warm, nostalgic fuzzies from 8mm Vintage Camera’s grainy, flickery film filters and lens effects, conjuring up memories of vacation travelogues screened in wood-paneled basements. It’s not just about old-school kicks, though—this powerful suite of tools can give any video an authentic period look.
First non clickbait 8mm sim
When i first downloaded this app i thought its one of those cheesy clickbait apps that just add tons of contrast and fade the blacks in a very unnatural way but it blew me away with its authenticity in both the color and specially the film grain, the quality is so great that im running RED footage through it just to get that grain and colors That being said i have two serious problems with it which i hope to be solved in later updates.
When you import clips in the app there is no way to preview the clip before saving it, i get the whole vintage workflow kind of thing but it would be very nice to be able to actually run through the clip with the added effect before hitting the record button and having to actually rip it at 1x speed for it to be saved.
The second problem - well not really a problem but a recommendation - is not being able to just add film grain. The grain patterns are extremely nice and useful and on par with some pretty expensive grain overlays. It would be very nice being able to just add the grain without adding a color effect.
I hope this was helpful
Insane grading/filters but needs tweaking
I was absolutely blown away by the grading this app is capable of. All the filters look so nice and somewhat professional. The one thing that would make this app perfect is having the option to change the video orientation IN APP. It's pretty annoying that whenever I record a video externally say through Instagram or the actual phone camera app, (mostly vertical videos for stories. Rarely horizontal) I save to my camera roll and whenever I open the video in the 8mm app to add a filter, it flips the orientation to horizontal or vice-versa. I had to download a third-party app just to flip the videos I record just so I can then have them be correctly orientated inside the actual 8mm app and export them vertically like I wanted them in the first place. That gets pretty annoying and is very time consuming. Nothing a super quick update could fix I'm pretty sure. But other than that, $2 really well spent 👍🏼
