How to Use the VirtualDub MSU Old Cinema Filter for VideoPad

The VirtualDub MSU Old Cinema Filter is a Free Plugin for VideoPad by MSU Graphics and Media Lab to Give Your Videos an Old Film Look

Download for free here:

The MSU Old Cinema Effect Filter is an optional VirtualDub plugin for VideoPad similar to the Old Film effect already available in VideoPad, but gives you more parameters to control. It works by adding the following to your video or movie:
  • Several color correction types
  • Vertical stripes
  • Adding small and large noise
  • Emulsion exfoliation effects
Editor's Note:
VideoPad comes with a built-in old cinema filter, however, for those who want additional controls, we support the Old Cinema plugin. 
Please note that due to the plugin being a 3rd party product and not maintained by us in any way, we cannot provide technical support if the plugin causes the program to crash. We recommend saving your project before applying the filter.

To install the Old Cinema plugin,

  1. Download the filter & specify a location on your computer to save them. We recommend creating a folder called "VirtualDub" to save this and any other VirtualDub effects in.
  2. Once you have downloaded and saved the Old Cinema plugin, open a video project in VideoPad. Click the Effects button on the Home tab, and from the effects drop-menu at the top, select Load/Unload VirtualDub Plugins. This will open the Video Effect Plugins window.
  3. Click the Load File(s) button and browse to your saved VirtualDub effects. Select the Old Cinema filter (look for .vdf format) and click Open. Click OK to close the Video Effects Plugins window.
  4. The filter will be added to the drop-menu in the Video Effects window. Select the effect to open it and click the Configure Plugin button view/adjust its parameters. You can edit the effect any time after it has been applied by clicking this same button from the Applied Effects list for the selected clip.
