  1. Hello everyone. I've made a short b/w silent film and in this short film we cut to some actual footages of Muranau's Nosferatu, which was made back in 1922. Now the thing is I've shot the video in FHD with Canon 5D. So obviously the texture, the feel, the look and the atmosphere of my video is totally different than Nosferatu's. Nosferatu's image is grainy and has scratches. Now I've got 2 questions:

    1. Is there any way to make these 2 different videos (my film and Nosferatu) look same? I'm a newbie to this whole thing and I'm looking for the easiest/faster way. I know Premiere, After Effects, Edius or Vegas would do, but I'm looking for the easiest/fastest way. Do you know any [easy] software with filters and effects to do this?

    2. I've got Magix Video Pro X on my system and I've applied the "16mm Movie Look" [from Effects] to both videos and they look 'kinda' the same. But the problem is this 16mm movie look is way too flashy. Is there any way to control/handle the 'Movie Looks' in Video Pro X? I mean can I reduce the noises, the white spots and change the '16mm' look? 16mm has nothing to do with silent films but that's as closest as I have come so far

    Here's a screenshot (the left image is my Full HD Canon 5D taken video and the right one is from Nosferatu - the 16mm effect is applied to both with Magix Video Pro X):

    Here's the same shot without any effects:

  2. Your basic matching doesn't look too bad, though short motion clips would be much for useful for comparison than stills.

    Nosferatu was shot at 16fps with relatively low sensitivty film that favored the blue end of the spectrum. It was lit and shot by the best in the business. And of course it has been damaged over the past 95 years so different scenes come from different sources.

    I don't use video pro X (few here do) and have no idea of its capabilities.

    Well the 'basic matching' of the one shot looks surprisingly good, but as you said it's not good enough for a 4 minute video. Do you know any program that I could use for this purpose? I want a simple software, that with only a click it could apply an effect/filter to my video (and Nosferatu's). Something like Video Pro X. I just clicked on the '16mm effect' and the result, as you see, is not that bad. But I'm looking for another softwares with more effects/filters.
