Authentic 8mm film burn effects for digital video editing

4K Super 8 Film Burn Overlays – Kodak Tri-X

This is an experiment that was done with a super 8 camera and a roll of black and white Kodak Tri-X Film. The goal was here to create the best looking light leaks and flash frames possible. To easily use these film effects, just place them over your footage and simply apply the “screen” or “lighten” composite modes.

8mm film burn effects

Kodak Tri-X Reversal Film is a high-speed panchromatic black-and-white film designed for reversal processing for direct projection and duplication. It features an anti-halation undercoating that benefits working in low-light and indoor conditions; however, it is also suitable for outdoor applications. Tri-X Reversal is also characterized by a fine grain structure and wide tonal range with smooth gradations between values. Intended for process in Kodak B&W Reversal Process Kit chemistry, using D-94A Reversal First Developer and R-10 B&W Reversal Bleach and Replenisher, this film can also be processed as a negative using standard B&W chemistry, albeit with a loss of speed and increased granularity.

So this all means that what you get your hands on are scans of very real analog film footage. You can not ask for more organic and authentic material. Enjoy using it on any project like a music video, a feature length film, a documentary or an experimental art project.
