How to Mimic the Visual Style of ‘Retro’ Videos


Are you a fan of timeless classic films? Whether you prefer film noire, silent films, or just enjoy old movies in general – did you know that you can actually mimic the visual style of these ‘retro’ videos in your own?

While manually attempting to figure out how to mimic the look and feel of retro videos would be tremendously complicated – with Movavi Video Editor you won’t have to get into any of that. Instead, the software will provide you with a much easier way to transform your video so that it look exactly like retro videos – or any other form of older movies for that matter.

Essentially Movavi Video Editor will provide you with numerous filters, and mimicking the visual style of retro videos for yourself is as simple as applying one of them to your videos. To do so:

  1. Add the video by clicking ‘Add Media Files’ and selecting it.
  2. Open up the ‘Filters’ tab and select the ‘Retro’ section to access a group of effects that include 70s, Greyscale, Retro, Scratches, Sepia, and Vignette.
  3. Apply the effect that you want by dragging and dropping it onto the video in the ‘Timeline’.
  4. To remove any effect that you may have accidentally added just click the small ‘star’ on the video, select the effect, and click ‘Remove’.
  5. When you’re satisfied with the look of the video, click ‘Export’ to save it.

That same process can be used to apply numerous other types of filters and special effects. In conjunction with the other features of Movavi Video Editor, you can really create some amazing-looking videos without having to do anything more than perform a few clicks and drag and drop elements into place.

Because the software is so easy to use, learning how to apply its features will only take a matter of minutes. Once you do so however, you will be able to cut and combine video segments, improve the quality of your videos, add audio tracks, insert customizable text, and much more.

In fact you may even want to use Movavi Video Editor to compile some of your home videos and create a home movie that you can then transform with the retro visual style. Essentially you’ll be creating your own ‘old’ movie, and that might be something worth pursuing if it piques your interest.
