VSCO Film 04 for Video

We use VSCO film packs 01 and 02 almost exclusively for editing and processing our photos. Lately we’ve discovered that VSCO works wonders for video as well. We had been hearing so many good things about the new VSCO 04 Film pack so we decided to put together a short video to see what it would look like on some of our recent wedding footage. If you are wondering how to edit video files with VSCO it is very simple. Gather all of the clips that you want to edit and then just drag them into Lightroom (we used Lightroom 5). Please note that you will not be able to edit the photos in Develop mode…only in Library mode. After the video files are imported then just click on the Saved Preset button under Quick Develop and select VSCO Film 04. A list of all of the different presets will appear and then just select the one you want. Most presets will not look perfect once you apply it. We went through and adjusted the Exposure, Temperature, Tint, and Contrast to achieve to look we wanted. Keep in mind that these presets may add a little bit of grain to the footage but it’s a small price to pay for the looks you can achieve. We were especially impressed with the Agfa Scala preset for Black and White. It’s been hard for us to find good black and white filters that we really like for video and this one looks great. Our 2 favorite color presets are Kodak E200 and Fuji Velvia 100. Please feel free to message us with any other questions.
Nate & Lori,

None of the footage in this video is RAW.
The clips in this video are primarily shot on the Canon 5d Mark III and Canon 6D with various L Lenses. We use a custom Faithful Picture Style with the Contrast and Sharpness all the way to the left.

    Hi Nate and Lori! I have a question about your workflow. Did you do LR tweaks and place into FCP? It’d be sweet if you could message me because I am finding many different opinions…

  2. I’m just starting to get into filmmaking, and this is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you!

  3. Hey guys,

    Just trying to figure out the export proses.
    Working between FCP and LR.

    Q:
    Do i export video as H.264? or no compression, from FCP.
    LR exports in mp4. (which does not work in FCP) What do i do?

    Thanks for your time.

    God bless.

  4. I export the video files as mp4. Then just drop them into Final Cut Pro X. No problems at all.

    They look great! What kind of picture styles are you using?

    Nice! I would also like to know if you used a flat picture style in your camera or if you used used the standard style out of cam before applying Visco Film. Thx in advance!

  7. I use a custom Faithful Picture Style….Sharpness all the way down, Contrast all the way down, and Saturation down one notch.
